The pair will likely be joined in securing Anfield exits by Algerian Yasser Larouci, who likewise rejected a one-year contract extension in favour of seeking pastures new.
It’s always a shame to see promising talent take an early exit, particularly the 16-year-old who previously attracted attention with his 26-minute hat-trick in the FA Youth Cup and was tipped to feature more regularly for our U18s side.
With the likes of Harvey Elliott likely to get a chance to prove he deserves a spot in Jurgen Klopp’s first-team – not to mention with a number of other Academy graduates having already made the grade – there is living evidence of opportunities being handed to young talent.
If Ennis believes he’ll get more chances in London, however, we’ll wish him all the best going forward.
