Flanagan signs new Liverpool deal

Liverpool defender Jon Flanagan has signed a new three-year contract at Anfield.

The 23-year-old signed a one-year deal last summer following 20 months out with a knee problem, but has impressed Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp with his attitude and his performances since making his comeback in the FA Cup third-round replay at home to Exeter in January after 619 days on the sidelines.

"I've been through a lot in the last two years with the injury, and maybe a few people thought my future was in doubt but I've worked hard and this is a bonus at the end of it," Flanagan told liverpoolfc.com.

"I think this is my third professional contract with Liverpool now, so I'm really happy.

"It's brilliant - it's something I've always wanted to do since I was a child.

"Any doubters who have said I was finished and stuff like that, it has made me come back stronger."

Klopp says he was determined to ensure the Liverpool-born academy graduate, who has featured in the Reds' last two Premier League matches, was offered a new contract.

"I was a little bit involved in these negotiations," the German said.

"It is good for us but I think in this special case, with his long injury, it is better for Flanno.

"There are a few other full-backs in the world but not so many Scousers and not so many came back after a difficult injury.

"He is our boy and we are really happy to have him here."
