Lovren signs bumper new £25m four-and-a-half year deal at Liverpool

Date Posted,April 28, 2017

Dejan Lovren has committed his long term future to Liverpool by signing a staggering new £25m contract.

The centre-half has agreed a new four year deal – with an option of an additional year to 2022 – worth almost £100,000 a week.

The 27-year-old had two years left to run on his current agreement, but talks had stalled earlier in the year when his representatives couldn’t agree terms.

Negotiations were resurrected last month though, with manager Jurgen Klopp determined to sign the defender as a long term foundation for his team building plans.

The news may surprise a few Reds fans, with calls for Liverpool to spend big in the summer on a centre half to address the continuing defensive problems Liverpool have suffered this season.
