Flanagan to get new Liverpool contract, says Rodgers

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has confirmed Jon Flanagan will be rewarded for his recent performances with a new contract, according to ESPN.

Flanagan is a graduate of the Reds’ youth academy and has come into the first team this season, drawing praise both from Rodgers and the club’s supporters for his mature displays.

The 21-year-old’s current deal expires in 2015 and Rodgers has said Liverpool will try and tie down the local boy after a series of impressive showings.

“Jon will be given a new contract - no question,” Rodgers said. “Come the summer he's got another year so he will definitely be given a new deal.

“He has been outstanding… steady, aggressive, no fear; he's been a revelation, and particularly in the big games,” the manager continued. “It's great when you see a young player develop like that. You can see the confidence he has now. He has made himself an important member of the squad.”

Rodgers was asked if Flanagan’s performances would mean the club would decline to sign a new full-back in the summer to give Flanagan the chance to nail down the position for himself for the long-term.

Rodgers agreed it was a possibility. “[He] could. If he keeps his focus and keeps working well, he can do that. He was only born in '93, he's only very young, but his performance levels are so mature.”
