Liverpool star confirms he hasn’t been offered new deal

Liverpool defender Glen Johnson has admitted he is yet to be offered a new contract at Liverpool, reports the Express.

The right back has become first choice under Brendan Rodgers this season, and reached a landmark 50th England cap in Wednesday’s 1-0 win over Denmark at Wembley.

Johnson – who joined the Reds in an ¬£18million deal from Portsmouth in 2009 – is set to see his contract enter it’s final year in the summer.

Though a new contract hasn’t been offered, Johnson maintains he is keen to stay with the Reds for the forseeable future.

“I’ve loved every minute of the five years I’ve been here and I’d love to stay but really the only truth in it is that I’ve not been offered a new contract on any level,” Johnson said.

“I know some people¬†have been saying Liverpool don’t want to pay me my current wages, but I’ve not heard that. No one has come to me from Liverpool at all.

“I don’t know the situation the club are in or if they want to renew it. So I’ve not got a decision to make other than to see my contract out because no-one is telling me any different.”It is an unnecessary distraction. I’m more than happy to sign a new contract and I’d love to stay here for many more years. But at the moment that is not for me to decide because I’ve not been offered anything and I’ve not been told I’m going to be sold.

“I just have to honour my contract and try not to let it distract me.”
