Liverpool hand out contract extensions to defenders Kolo and Andre

Liverpool FC today announced contract extensions for Kolo Toure and Andre Wisdom.

Toure, 34, signs a one year extension - while Wisdom, 22, extends his Liverpool deal until 2019.

Kolo Toure said:

"Liverpool is going to be massive. I love Premier League football and I played all my years here. And if I can finish here it would be great.

“My kids go to school here and they are half-English, and that is important as well.

Rafa Benitez brought Andre Wisdom to Liverpool as a youngster in 2008.  The player was a key member of the youth sides and went on to be rewarded twice with contract extensions - under Dalglish in 2011 and under Rodgers in 2013.

He spent 2013-14 on loan with Derby County and the club had a good season in the Championship.  They finished 3rd and narrowly missed out on promotion - losing 1-0 to QPR in the playoff final.

Last season he was on loan at Premier League West Brom.  He was a regular under Alan Irvine, but wasn't used as often by West Brom's next manager Tony Pulis.
