Bruno Cheyrou has ended his disappointing spell at Liverpool by signing for Rennes.
French midfielder Bruno Cheyrou has ended his disappointing spell at Liverpool by signing for Rennes.
Cheyrou joined The Reds in the summer of 2002 from Lille and he figured prominently during his first season at Anfield.
Gerard Houllier's departure from Merseyside in 2004 changed Cheyrou's fortunes, as he slipped out of the picture under Rafa Benitez.
He spent the last two seasons on loan at Marseille and Bordeaux and was informed by The Reds that he could seek out a permanent move this summer.
A number of clubs expressed interest in the 28-year-old, with Rennes proving to be the most persuasive.
An accord has been reached with all parties and Cheyrou will be unveiled by the Rouge et Noir at a press conference on Friday.
