Liverpool assistant captain James Milner has agreed on a new one-year contract extension with the club. With this contract, the Englishman has now spent eight years with the club after joining from Liverpool. The 36-year-old joined Liverpool on a free transfer from Manchester City in 2015. He has made 289 appearances for the Reds and has won six major trophies, including the Premier League, Champions League, FA Cup and League Cup.
James Milner Sign 1-year Contract Extension with Liverpool
It is understood that James Milner has accepted a contract with significantly reduced terms to remain at Anfield. The player said: “I’m very pleased to be staying for another season.” “I have never taken playing for this club for granted and I never will.”
James Milner, who would have been out of contract at the end of the month, had offers from at least one Premier League club and two from overseas but has chosen to stay with the Reds on a new deal that runs until the summer of 2023.
He has featured in both full-back positions as well as his favoured midfield role under Jurgen Klopp. He made it clear that the new deal is an overriding feeling for him and he believes he can still contribute to the team.
