Liverpool announced the club has tied down defender Dejan Lovren to a new long-term contract after an impressive season.
The Croatian international bounced back from a down year by making 25 appearances in the Premier League, starting every match despite missing a month with injury. Lovren has been the club's bona fide leader along the back-line, forming a fluid partnership with summer signing Joel Matip. Now, it looks like the pair will be together for years to come following the 27-year-old Lovren's new deal. Said manager Jurgen Klopp: "In a situation like this, you really have to look from the outside. If Dejan played for another club, you would think about signing him. Then you would have to think about what would you have to pay for him and it would be a lot - a big sum of money. Having him around and giving him a new contract and working with him together… he is 27 years old and his best time for a centre-half is still to come." Apr 29 - 10:54 AM
