Joe Allen set for Liverpool stay and new contract, Klopp impressed


International midfielder Joe Allen, 26, set for new contract at Liverpool, rebuffing rumours that the player was set to be shipped out in the next transfer window.

Reports have suggested that Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has been so impressed with Allen he has instructed the board to extend the players contract.

Allen had been linked to a host of Premier League clubs and even current Europa League champions Sevilla wanted the midfielder. However after an incredible run of form, Allen has changed Klopp’s opinion and he looks set to stay at Anfield.

Klopp went on record to say “He deserves a future here, of course. He is in brilliant shape. We will see what happens but for me it is not the time to talk about his contract now.”
