Martin Hansen Leaves Liverpool FC, Reserve Goalkeeper Signs With Viborg FF

Liverpool's only bit of transfer business on deadline day involved a player leaving the club. LiverpoolFC reports goalkeeper Martin Hansen transferred to Danish club Viborg FF on Tuesday, ending a nearly six-year stay with LFC.

The 21-year-old Hansen is heading back to his native Denmark to his continue his development with Viborg. He joined the Reds' Academy in 2006, and graduated to the reserves in the 2008-09 season. 

He was never able to progress to the first team, and he was effectively LFC's fourth-choice goalkeeper behind Pepe Reina, Alexander Doni, and Brad Jones. Hansen spent the month of August 2011 with League Two club Bradford City, playing four games for the fourth-tier club.

The Reds signed the highly rated Danny Ward from Wrexham on Monday and were linked with a move for out of contract Swedish international Kristoffer Nordfelt. Those moves paved the way for Hansen's Anfield exit.
