22-year-old delivers heartfelt Twitter message after Liverpool exit is confirmed
By Danny Wright
Jack Dunn insists that Liverpool will always hold a place in his heart after he left Anfield to join Tranmere on Friday.
The 22-year-old spent the second half of last season on loan with Tranmere but that switch has now been made permanent following the expiration of his Reds contract.
The attacker helped Rovers to the National League play-off final at Wembley last month, however his new employers failed to earn promotion back to the Football League as they lost 3-1 to Forest Green.
Dunn is a product of the famous Liverpool academy and having been born in the city he makes it no secret of his affinity towards to the Reds and is clearly gutted to see his time there come to an end.
“For 15 years I’ve been proud to be part of Liverpool. It’s a club I’ve loved since I was born and always will,” said Dunn on his personal Twitter account on Friday.

Dunn has signed a one-year contract with Liverpool’s Merseyside rivals Tranmere, who will be hoping to earn promotion again next season.
He made eight appearances for Rovers towards the end of the campaign but never found the net.
The youngster did have a good spell while on loan at Morecambe before switching the Prenton Park as he scored six goals in 19 appearances for the League Two outfit.
Dunn never made a senior appearance for Liverpool.
In other Liverpool news, John Arne Riise has said the club should sell this 27-year-old in the summer.
