Adam Lallana signs extended LFC contract

28 year old Liverpool midfielder Adam Lallana has signed a new contract replacing his current deal.

The England man joined the club after the World Cup in 2014 and his initial deal was due to expire in the summer of 2019.

His new deal expires a year later in 2020 shortly after his 31st birthday with the option of the club extending it for a further year.

It is rumoured to be worth around £110,000 per week.

He has scored 20 goals in his 117 LFC appearances and has enjoyed a rejuvenation in form since the arrival of Jurgen Klopp, who is now also his neighbour.

Speaking after his contract signing Lallana said:

“I’m very proud and feel quite humbled by the show of faith from the club and the manager in particular.

“Signing for a club like Liverpool is obviously a big thing – but to re-sign shows you’ve obviously contributed enough that the people who make the decisions want you to stay longer.

“This is a really good place to be at the moment and, for a player who wants to be part of something special, I can’t think of a better club to commit your future to.

“I think my best years are still ahead of me because I feel so fresh and confident.

“You can’t always promise to be the best player on the pitch but I think you can promise to try your best each and every game. I try to do that and I think the Liverpool supporters see that in me.”

Jurgen Klopp was also delighted with the announcement, saying:

"Adam is a natural leader and is so, so important within our team and also in the dressing room. Maybe on the outside his leadership is not seen as much as we see it each and every day at Melwood in everything he does.

"What I think is most exciting about this news is that this player is only just arriving at his peak. He has his very best years ahead of him and they will be at LFC.
