Liverpool are to offer supporters who bought a 2017/18 replica shirt printed with Philippe Coutinho’s name and number a refund once his move to Barcelona is complete.
With the move expected to be completed next week, Liverpool fans will be able to exchange their Coutinho shirt for a £50 voucher.
A club statement on the issue read: "The offer - which applies to all shirts purchased in official club outlets and via the official LFC website - follows today's announcement that Coutinho will join Barcelona and reflects the exceptional circumstances behind the player's departure.
"In order to avail of this offer, qualifying supporters should present their 2017-18 Coutinho replica shirt at any official club store where the voucher will be issued. The shirt will not be retained but proof of purchase will be required.
"The voucher will be valid from January 13, 2018 to May 31, 2018 and is valid at all official Liverpool FC stores in the UK and Republic of Ireland."
Coutinho, who joined Liverpool for £8.5m from Inter Milan in 2013, has made 20 appearances in all competitions for the Anfield side this season, scoring 12 goals.
