The 24-year-old has been a consistent performer for Brendan Rodgers over the last two years, resulting in the club offering new terms that will keep him at Anfield till 2019.

The Englishman stated that he isn’t worried about his contract, as he enjoys playing for Liverpool and revealed he is close to extending his current deal.

“I’m just concentrating on playing football,” he said. “I’m not worried about that.

“I’m enjoying my football. I love this club and I want to be here for many years so that shouldn’t be an issue.

“I’ll let my agent sort that out. It’s nothing to do with me.”
