Liverpool’s Isaac Christie-Davies has left a heartfelt goodbye after confirming his exit from the club yesterday on Instagram.
Christie-Davies, 22, was with the Reds for two years following a move from Chelsea back in 2018 but has since chosen to join Championship outfit Barnsley as the next step for his career.
The versatile midfielder was limited to just one senior appearance for Liverpool in the EFL Cup having started during the 5-0 defeat to Aston Villa during the quarter-final stage of the competition back in November 2019.
However, Christie-Davies has most recently deemed that his career prospects are best suited away from Anfield after the youngster confirmed on social media that the time has come to go out and seek first-team football elsewhere.
Christie-Davies is joining a Barnsley side who will be looking to kick on from last season after dramatically avoiding relegation during the final day of last season.
Currently managed by Gerhard Struber, The Tykes saw a massive turnaround in form to save themselves from the drop and following the team’s excellent progress it could represent a suitable environment for Christie-Davies to thrive in the 2020/21 campaign which begins this weekend.
His time at both Liverpool and Chelsea will put Christie-Davies in a good position to adapt to life at Oakwell, with manager Stuber also similarly adopting a high energy style approach to that of Jurgen Klopp.
Following his departure, Christie-Davies took to Instagram to share an emotional farewell to the club whom he said it was a ‘childhood dream’ to represent.
The caption read: “After two great years at Liverpool it’s time for me to move on to the next step in my career. I would like to say thank you to all at the club including teammates, all the staff on and off the pitch and supporters.
“It was a childhood dream to play for Liverpool so I’m honoured to have been able to do that. An extra thank you to the fans for the support, you are what makes the club what it is.”
