Defender exit confirmed
Liverpool full-back Fabio Aurelio has agreed a deal to join Gremio back in Brazil after being released by the Reds.
The defender, whose six years at Anfield have been disrupted by plenty of injury problems, secured a one-year contract extension last summer but will now move on and is heading back to his native Brazil. Aurelio, who joined from Valencia in 2006, started just one league game for the Reds last season - the 1-0 home defeat against Fulham. He will now pen a deal with Gremio as he looks to further his career. Meanwhile, Liverpool youngster David Amoo has agreed a one-year deal with Preston after his contract at Anfield also expired. The striker only made one senior appearance for Liverpool, in a European qualifier a couple of years ago, and spent last term on loan at Bury.
