Yossi Benayoun will add another year on to his Liverpool contract after being rewarded for an excellent season at Anfield last year.
The 29 year old Israeli had an impressive finish to the season, more than taking up the slack after Robbie Keane left the club. Talks have been ongoing and the player will receive an extra year on to his Liverpool contract which will take him through to the summer of 2012.
Rafa has also moved to offer three year contracts to midfielder Jay Spearing and right back Stephen Darby, both of whom saw action for Liverpool in the Champions League last season.
“We had to guarantee the future of the club first and then afterwards if you can improve then you must try to do so.
“This meant that the first thing we had to do this summer was to guarantee the futures of some of the players who are already here and we are happy that we have been able to do this in so many cases.”
