His departure ends his six-and-a-half-year stint with The Hawthorns, having joined from Hull in January 2017.

Livermore was called up for England during his time with the Baggies, capped seven caps and was also on Gareth Southgate’s 2018 World Cup substitute list.

In addition to his 68 Premier League appearances for West Brom, he also made 92 appearances for Hull and 36 for Tottenham in England’s top flight.

In the division, he scored seven goals and added nine assists.

Club captain Livermore said goodbye to Baggies believers in an open letter in April.

He said it was “an honor and a privilege to represent this great football club.”

“I’ve called the Hawthorns home for the last six and a half years and such is my love for this club, its fans and especially its incredible, hardworking staff that it will always be my footballing home – but now that time is near for me to say goodbye to me as a player.

“There were some unforgettable highlights on the pitch that I will always remember.”

“The emotion of my late goal against Tottenham, representing the club at international level for England, my winner against Birmingham City and of course captaining the team to promotion in 2020…

“This will always be my football club if you accept me as an honorary Baggie.

“My children were raised as Albion fans and no matter what happens next, I will be a regular visitor to The Hawthorns for a long time to come – who will always hold a special place in my heart.”

Livermore’s stint as the Three Lion marked a notable turning point in his career.

He tested positive for cocaine in April 2015 after revealing he was struggling to come to terms with the tragic death of his little boy.

Staff claimed the baby was not born alive in May 2014, but Livermore heartbrokenly said, “I heard him cry softly.”

Livermore battled depression after the harrowing events.

His drug use did not result in a ban after the FA ruled death was an overwhelming mitigating factor.

He said of the positive test, “It was like getting out of jail, people finally knew something was wrong in my head.”

“It was totally out of character for anything I’ve been into before.

“Finally I could be myself instead of putting on a brave face 24/7.”

“At home, at work, over coffee, in shops, you’re constantly trying to be someone you’re not and showing feelings you don’t really feel, because as soon as you close your front door, you’re broken.” man, you actually are.

“It was a relief for me. The drugs didn’t matter. It could have been drugs, a gun, a car crash or whatever, the self destruct button was the problem.”

“The way in which [his death] What happened made it difficult to fight my own demons.

“Losing a child in God’s hands is a different matter altogether. Figuring out why it died was too much for my head and heart.”
