Kuyt set to leave Anfield exodus

Dirk Kuyt is set to be the most high-profile casualty when Kenny Dalglish sets about rebuilding his Liverpool squad this summer, it has been claimed.

The Dutch forward has started 19 of the Reds' 31 Premier League games this season, and appears to have been deemed surplus to requirements on Merseyside.

Kuyt will have 12 months remaining on his current contract at the end of the season and, according to the Daily Mail, will be moved on by Liverpool during the summer.

The 31-year-old only signed an extension last year, following a potent spell of goalscoring form as Kenny Dalglish transformed Liverpool after the sacking of Roy Hodgson.

A poor season this time around, however, has prompted Liverpool owners Fenway Sports Group to make plans for another summer overhaul, and Kuyt's six-year stay at Anfield is seemingly set to end.

Kuyt signed for Liverpool from Feyenoord for £9 million in August 2006 and has scored 71 goals in 276 appearances for the club in all competitions.

Few strikes have been more important than the one he netted at Wembley in February as Liverpool went on to lift the Carling Cup after a penalty shootout.
