The Daily Star have Liverpool fans smiling here in the Football Transfer Tavern, and not just because of the Champions League draw.
The publication has claimed that the Reds are set to offer a new deal to one of their young stars – and reward him for all his good work and performances this season.
Jon Flanagan has been one of the stars of the season for the Merseyside club and as our punters claim, Brendan Rodgers knows that he deserves to be rewarded.
All the talk of late may be about keeping the manager tied to the club, with skipper Steven Gerrard leading those calls, but a new deal for Flanagan would be a major coup for the Reds to boot.
The player is currently only earning around £15,000 per week, and by increasing that not to mention extending his current deal, the title contenders will make sure that one of the stars of the future will remain at their club.
When Rodgers was asked about the player, he was rather complementary and claimed: “He will definitely be given a new deal in the summer, no question.
“He’s been a revelation, and particularly in the big games. You can see the confidence he has now. He has made himself an important member of the squad.”
