Glen Johnson has confessed that he’s unlikely to still be a Liverpool player next season.
The England international has been a Reds star since making a big money move to the club from Portsmouth in 2009, but his current contract is due to expire in a few months’ time, and the Merseysiders are reluctant to offer the 30-year-old a big salary.
Johnson is currently one of the higher earners at the club, but his first-team role has been diluted this season under Brendan Rodgers on the back of a series of injuries and some less than inspiring performances.
Interest from overseas is thought to be relatively strong, and the former Chelsea man has admitted that he’s likely to be heading away from Anfield soon:
“Am I leaving Liverpool? I would have thought so – I haven’t got a contract.” He is quoted by Metro.
“We’ll have to wait and see.”
Johnson started for Liverpool in their abysmal 1-0 loss at Hull on Tuesday night, which has all but ended their hopes of a top four finish.
