Milner signs new Liverpool deal

James Milner is staying at Liverpool. The 36-year-old vice-captain has extended his contract and will remain with for a further season.

The former Leeds and Man City man has now played 289 games during his seven years at Anfield and scored 26 goals.

“I’m very pleased to be staying for another season,” Milner told the official site. “I have never taken playing for this club for granted and I never will.

“Ultimately it was a decision I made, with the support of my family, on the basis of the quality of people at the club; teammates first and foremost, along with the manager and coaches. Plus the brilliant training ground staff, who are the heartbeat of AXA. From the medical room, sports science, the kit department, nutrition, the canteen and office staff. All people who make the team what it is.

“As long as I can still play my part, that’s not something easy to walk away from.

“Last season was extraordinary, even though it didn’t have the ending we hoped it would. But I think that will only make us all even hungrier for more success, to be honest. I felt that after the parade and that played a part in my decision-making also. It’s a unique club.

“Now this is signed, I’m already looking forward to getting back with everyone, refocusing and going again. It’s a brilliant dressing room to be part of.”
