England midfielder Adam Lallana has signed a long-term contract extension with Liverpool.

Liverpool did not disclose the precise length of Lallana’s deal but it is reported to be for three years, with the option of an additional 12 months.

The 28 year old was previously committed to the club since 2019.

He told Liverpool’s official website: “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.

Lallana, who was named as England’s player of the year for 2016 last month, has excelled this season with seven goals and as many assists in 23 Premier League appearances.
