The Daily Mail says Meireles is hopeful Liverpool's owners will reward his excellent first season with a new improved contract.

The Portugal international joined Liverpool on a four-year deal last summer from FC Porto but did not receive lucrative terms.

The midfielder has been outstanding for the Reds for much of this season.
