Glen Johnson has today put pen to paper on an extension to his Liverpool contract.
The England international, who has made 70 appearances for the Reds, committed his future to the club by signing the deal at Melwood.
Liverpool FC Director of Football Damien Comolli said: “We are absolutely delighted. We were in talks for a few weeks, but it was easy to find an agreement because he wanted to stay and we wanted him to stay.
“We are very pleased he wants to commit long term, and I think he was pleased we went to him and asked him to commit long term.
“His best years are to come. Very often defenders peak between 26 and 31, so he is just entering into those years where a maturity comes in and his knowledge of the game gets better and better. We are happy his long-term future is at Liverpool.”
Johnson joined Liverpool two years ago from Portsmouth and marked his Anfield debut with a spectacular goal in a 4-0 victory over Stoke City in August 2009.
Excellent. I love Johnson, he’s a great defender.
