In what may be Danish football’s transfer of the decade, Brøndby IF has signed Daniel Agger, 29, back home from Liverpool FC where he spent eight and a half years.

The defender – who captains the Danish national team with 64 caps to his name – has returned back to the club where it all started, signing a two-year deal with the club from the western suburbs of Copenhagen.

Agger – who is known for expressing his undying loyalty to Liverpool and Brøndby – said that leaving Liverpool was an extremely difficult decision but that returning home to Brøndby was the right move.

"I wouldn't leave here to go anywhere else and that has been proven by my actions in recent seasons - I have turned down many offers to move to other Premier League and European clubs,” he said in a Liverpool FC press release.

A fan for life
Agger played 34 Superliga matches for Brøndby winning the Danish Superliga title in 2005 before moving to Liverpool in 2006 where he amassed 232 games and lifted the 2012 Carling Cup trophy for the Reds.

"I would like to thank the Liverpool supporters for the incredible backing they have given me in my time here and the warmth and generosity of spirit displayed to my family. The club itself is very special and I shall remain a supporter for the rest of my life. I regard every game I played at Anfield as a privilege," Agger said.
