The Daily Mail have Liverpool fans looking up with interest over by the pool table here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they seem to think that the Reds are willing to enter into contract negotiations with Joe Allen.
The Welshman joined the club back in 2012 and has become a Brendan Rodgers favourite – and with two years left to run on his current deal, the club are keen to get negotiations started over a new deal before it winds down to the perilous 18 month danger zone and we think that is a clever move by the Reds.
Rodgers is determined to get his best players tied down to new deals and it seems he sees Allen as one of those, and while our regulars in the Tavern will never see Allen as a world beater, we think he is a decent squad player and certainly worth keeping around.
Liverpool fans. Do you think Allen deserves a new deal? Would you give him a pay increase? Let us know your thoughts below.
