"Rafael Camacho has completed a permanent transfer to Sporting CP," a Liverpool statement read on Thursday.

"The Portuguese youth international joined Liverpool's academy at the end of the 2015-16 season and departs the club for a return to his homeland. The 19-year-old made two first-team appearances during his time on Merseyside and was a regular for Neil Critchley's Under-23s last season. Everybody at LFC wishes Rafael the best of luck at his new club."

ESPN reports the GBP 5m fee could rise to GBP 7m and includes a sell-on clause and buy-back option.
