Liverpool fans reacted with encouragement on Twitter after it was announced that Pedro Chirivella has agreed to join Go Ahead Eagles on loan for the rest of the season.
The midfielder will join the Dutch outfit to gain experience and is hoping to feature regularly for the first team in the Eredivisie.
The Merseyside giants confirmed the agreement on their official website on Friday and fans sent messages of encouragement to the youngster on social media.
Here is a selection of the messages on Twitter:

Is it really a good idea sending Chirivella to a team that loses nearly every game?

The Spaniard has shown great potential in the Liverpool academy and he has become a regular feature for the under-23s side which excelled under Michael Beale prior to the coach’s departure.

Chirivella often trains with the first team and he made his debut during the 2015-16 campaign in the Europa League clash against Bordeaux.
He has gone on to make five appearances under Jurgen Klopp as the manager has handed debuts to a number of young academy stars, including Trent Alexander-Arnold, Ovie Ejaria and Ben Woodburn.
The 19-year-old has shown composure and great ability on the ball but he also has a good understanding of the game and provides balance in midfield.
Liverpool fans hope he will become a key figure in Holland and he will return to England with experience of playing regular first team action.
