James Milner

James Milner is set to sign a new one-year deal with Liverpool according to reports from transfer Fabrizio Romano.

Milner has played a pivotal squad role at Liverpool in recent years and manager Jurgen Klopp is said to have convinced the player to stay for another season as he feels his experience is valuable to the team.

According to The Athletic, Milner has agreed on a new one-year deal at Liverpool, accepting a significant wage cut to ensure negotiations went smoothly despite earlier reports indicating that he wanted to call it a day with a move to his boyhood club Leeds United.

The report also claims that the 36-year-old turned down two-year contracts at two Premier League clubs, as well as an offer from America.

Despite his age, the Englishman has been a reliable servant in a number of positions at the club more so the at left and right back each time the club is hampered by injuries or when Klopp needs some rotation to his team.
