Liverpool's sporting director Michael Edwards – who sealed Mo Salah transfer – announces he will leave at end of season

LIVERPOOL sporting director Michael Edwards has announced he is leaving the club at the end of the season.

The Reds chief was responsible for top signings including Mo Salah

But Edwards has confirmed he will be stepping down in the summer.

The ex-Tottenham and Portsmouth man joined Liverpool in November 2011.

And Edwards was responsible for several bargain deals, including paying just £39million for goal-hero Salah and £8m for defender Andy Robertson.

He was a fine negotiator in sales too, bagging £142m for Philippe Coutinho's Barcelona switch.

Edwards will be replaced next summer by Julian Ward, who had been working as assistant director following a spell as Liverpool's loan manager.
