Liam Millar says he was ‘very keen’ to secure a surprising move to Switzerland with FC Basel as the former Kilmarnock attacker brings an end to his Liverpool spell.

The Canadian international made one appearance for Liverpool and spent two loan spells in Scotland with Kilmarnock during his time at Anfield. He joins Swiss heavyweights FC Basel on a contract until 2o25, having had options to remain in the UK.

Millar said of his move abroad: “I have been at Liverpool for six years now and I feel like I needed a new challenge. This is somewhere that gives me a really good chance to show my skills. When Basel first approached me, I was very keen to get it done and come here, because it’s a huge club.

“You can tell that by the stadium. They have given me the opportunity and now I want to show what I can do.”
