Insua and Aquilani leave Liverpool

Emiliano Insua has left Liverpool to join Portuguese side Sporting on a five-year deal.

Insua, 22, joined Liverpool in 2007 but has struggled to establish himself as a first-team regular and spent last season on loan at Galatasaray.

With the arrival of Jose Enrique from Newcastle, Liverpool have confirmed on their official website that the left-back has been allowed to move on.

Insua, who made 44 appearances for Liverpool, has told Sporting's website that he is excited about the challenge ahead in Portugal.

Meanwhile, Liverpool have confirmed a deal is in place for Alberto Aquilani to join AC Milan on loan.

The deal will see Aquilani spend the season at the San Siro with an option to make the signing permanent. It has been reported that Milan will be obliged to sign the Italy midfielder if he makes 25 appearances.

Aquilani, 27, joined Liverpool from Roma in 2009 as a replacement for Xabi Alonso, but he struggled with injuries during his debut season and was then allowed to spend the 2010-11 campaign on loan at Juventus.

Reds boss Kenny Dalglish had earlier suggested that he would be happy to include Aquilani in his plans but, with a high number of midfielders at his disposal, the Italian has been allowed to depart.
