‘Proud’ Lallana pens new Liverpool contract

Adam Lallana says he is very 'proud and quite humbled' after signing a new three-year contract with Liverpool on Wednesday.

The 28-year-old penned a three-year deal with an option to renew for a further year with the Reds worth around £110 000-per-week.

The England midfielder had two years left to run on the five-year contract he signed when he joined Liverpool from Southampton in 2014.

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.

"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.

"And because it's Liverpool there is that added X-factor of the supporters and what success would mean to them when we achieve it here. I'm just delighted that I'm going to be part of it for even longer."
