By Danny Wright

Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter to broadcast their delight in the wake of the news that Adam Lallana will sign a new contract with the club.

ESPN reported that the 28-year-old is expected to sign a new deal within the next 24 hours that will see him become one of the club’s top earners as his pay rises to £110,000-a-week.

His new three-year deal will begin in the summer with an option to extend it by a further 12 months.

Lallana has enjoyed a great season for Jurgen Klopp’s side which has seen him play a more central midfield role rather than on the wings.

The former Southampton man has made 117 appearances for the Merseyside club and has scored 20 goals since joining the club in 2014 for £25million.
