Jerome Sinclair has quit Liverpool for Watford – but took to Twitter on Thursday to thank the Merseysiders for a memorable five years.

Liverpool announced on their official website that Sinclair will formally join Watford on 1 July after the expiry of his Anfield contract.

Sinclair has penned a three-year deal with the Hornets with the option of a fourth year, after both clubs reached an agreement on the compensation fee for the youngster.

On Twitter, Sinclair expressed his gratitude to the club for their support and making his five years at Anfield a “great experience”.

The winger, who moved to Anfield as a 15-year-old from West Brom in 2011, has decided to move after failing to break into the first team under Jurgen Klopp and his predecessor Brendan Rodgers.

In total, Sinclair has made five appearances for the first team and scored just the one goal, in the FA Cup third-round 2-2 draw against Exeter in January.

The youngster thanked the club and staff on Twitter and wished them all the best for the future.

But, the 19-year-old was looking forward to the future with Watford and helping establish them as a Premier League club.
