Exclusive: Mills suggests Liverpool may offer new contract to player with uncertain future
Danny Mills suggested Liverpool may offer midfielder Adam Lallana a new contract as they could decide to keep him.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Laura O’Leary, the ex-England defender stated that Lallana could stay if he keeps playing well, stays fit as he might be happy to just play a bit-part.
The experienced midfielder’s contract is due to expire at the end of the season and Jurgen Klopp previously hinted that there was no guarantee where Lallana will be next season.
Mills admitted that whenever Lallana features, he was in the shop window and likely to gain suitors, but wouldn’t rule out the midfielder getting a new deal from the Reds.
When asked if Lallana is in the shop window and likely gaining suitors by continuing to impress, Mills told Football Insider: “Yeah, of course, he is.
“Liverpool may well decide to keep him, if he stays fits, keeps playing well and is happy to be a squad player, there’s every chance he may well stay.

“Again it’s one of those, Liverpool are going to win the league, who is going to want to leave?
“No one’s going to say ‘Get me out of here’, it’s not going to happen is it.
“Just like it never happened at Manchester United, no one is queuing up to leave, they’re queuing up to join.
“Some players may accept the fact they’ll have to play a bit-part role, purely because they’re going to win trophies.”
Lallana featured in the Reds’ 1-0 win over Tottenham on Saturday as he came off the bench to play 29 minutes of the match.
The 31-year-old has played a total of 17 times this season for Klopp’s side and has scored one goal as well as registered two assists in his outings.
