Daniel Agger has paid tribute to Liverpool's supporters following the confirmation of his return to Brondby.

The addition of Dejan Lovren and the Dane's recent injury history has seen him tumble down the pecking order at Anfield, leading to his return to his homeland in a deal reportedly worth £3m.

Agger spent eight years at Liverpool, making over 200 appearances and winning the 2012 League Cup. He said he leaves the Merseyside club with fond memories.

"Liverpool has been such a big part of my life and my family's lives for so long that leaving is extremely difficult," he wrote.

"I'll start by saying that Liverpool fans constantly keep surprising me. Since the news broke about the transfer, I have received so many positive messages and well-wishing for the future – not just from supporters in Liverpool but across the world.

"My family and I have always felt your backing, it is something unique to this football club, this city and our supporters – it's been a privilege to have represented this club and I'm forever thankful for everything I have learnt during my time here.

"When I joined this great club, I came here as a 21-year-old boy with a lot to learn. Liverpool has helped me grow up and shape me into the man I am today. I'm proud of who I've become and I wouldn't be the person I am today without my time at Liverpool.

"I've been honoured to live in this close-knit city and my experiences as a Liverpudlian are unforgettable. I'd finally like to wish the club all the best for this season. I'll be supporting you every step of the way, as will millions of others. You'll Never Walk Alone."

The 29-year-old becomes the sixth high-profile exit from Liverpool this summer after Luis Suarez, Conor Coady, Pepe Reina, Martin Kelly and Jack Robinson took their leave from the club.
