What happened to Liverpool's cast-offs?
Liverpool's squad is packed with talent, as displayed by young 16-year-old Harry Wilson being called into the Wales international squad after just one under-21 game for the Reds.
But the teenager would be wise to bear in mind not every youngster makes it at Anfield, with the club's books trimmed this summer.
There were five players the club let leave on free transfers or released. We've taken a look at how they are getting on now...
21-year-old defender Danny Wilson cost Liverpool £1.5 million when he signed from Rangers but only ever made nine appearances for the club. He was allowed to leave on a free transfer where he joined Scottish side Hearts on a three-year-deal. He has gone onto make 10 appearances for the SPL side, scoring once.
Reserve goalkeeper Peter Gulacsi didn't make a single competitive appearance for the Reds despite signing back in 2007, going out on several loans. After being released, the 23-year-old Hungarian he signed for Austrian side Red Bull Salzburg, where he has made 18 appearances already, keeping six clean sheets, including three in Europa League matches.
Another goalkeeper, Stephens made a single under-21 appearance for Liverpool last season. The 20-year-old signed with newly promoted League Two side Newport County on a one-year-deal, and has made four appearances to date, including a shock 3-1 League Cup win over Brighton.
The third goalkeeper Liverpool allowed to leave, the 19-year-old signed for League One side Swindon Town on a two-year-deal. Belford, a former England under-17 international, made his debut in the Football League Trophy win over Plymouth this week.
Former 'wonderkid' Dani Pacheco closed the door on his Liverpool adventure when he was released on a free transfer to join Spanish second division side Alcoron in September. He signed a one-year-deal and has made six appearances so far, scoring once and providing one assist.
Which, if any, will Liverpool regret leaving?
