Team Liquid AD Carry Yiliang "Doublelift" Peng is reportedly heading back to Team SoloMid for the summer split, according to a report from ESPN.

"Liquid received additional interest from multiple teams within the league for Doublelift's contract rights, according to sources, but Doublelift chose TSM over other options. Doublelift was intimately involved in the process of choosing which team he wanted to go to," Jacob Wolf said in the ESPN report.

The move sees Doublelift join up with former League of Legends teammates Soren "Bjergsen" Bjerg and Vincent "Biofrost" Wang. The trio won three consecutive LCS titles from the 2016 summer split to the 2017 summer split.

After Doublelift's contract expired following the 2017 season, he moved to Team Liquid and helped the organization win four consecutive LCS titles. The team failed to make playoffs this spring split after a disappointing regular season performance. It's the first time a reigning LCS champion failed to make playoffs.

According to the report, both teams declined to comment.
