Why don’t I try and make a name for myself at Liverpool? Firstly, I only have one year remaining on my contract at Liverpool. Secondly, because I am 20 years old, I want to become established at a club. I don’t want to play one season and then leave. I am now going to take in my fourth club and it is the right time for me to start planning long-term. I learnt a lot at Liverpool, most notably about attitude.

I hope things will continue to progress at Rennes.”
