Liverpool fans on Twitter have praised sporting director Michael Edwards following the departure of Dominic Solanke to Bournemouth.

Bournemouth have signed Solanke from Premier League rivals Liverpool for a transfer fee reported by BBC Sport to be worth £19 million.

 

The 21-year-old striker joined the Reds in the summer of 2017 after leaving Chelsea at the end of the 2016-17 campaign.

The England international failed to make a huge impact at Anfield and could manage only a handful of appearances for the Reds’ first team.

Liverpool fans on Twitter are impressed with Edwards for getting a reported transfer fee of £19m for a player manager Jurgen Klopp did not need, as the Reds challenge for the Premier League title this season.

Below are some of the best comments:

Solanke is a promising young striker, but the Englishman simply could not compete with the firepower that Liverpool have at the moment.

The striker is only 21 years of age, and he will get chances under manager Eddie Howe at Bournemouth, and that will help him grow and develop in the coming months and years.
