Liverpool key performer Adam Lallana has signed a new long-term contract to keep him at Anfield until 2020.

Lallana will receive an improved wage of £110,000 a week for the next three years with the final year being an option to extend subject to performances.

“I’m very proud and feel quite humbled by the show of faith from the club and the manager in particular.” He told the club website. “Signing for a club like Liverpool is obviously a big thing – but to resign 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.

“We have a brilliant squad of players who are only going to get better the longer we are together. We have a world-class manager and coaching staff.”

Lallana has played his best season so far with Liverpool since joining from Southampton in 2014, boasting seven goals and seven assists in 21 appearances. Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp reveals he is a valued key member of the squad and his contract extension is positive news for the club.

“Adam is a natural leader and is 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.

“I am so pleased that we will spend more time together now and have this common future with LFC trying to be successful here.”
