Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has dropped a big hint of two new contracts being agreed.
The Reds have some important players still negotiating their futures, with cult hero Divock Origi, genuine Liverpool legend James Milner, and popular back up keeper Adrian all free agents in the summer. But when asked if the out of contract players would be given the hero's send off they deserve by the Kop, in the emotional, massive contest with Wolves on Sunday, Klopp's reply was hugely revealing.
Instead of dodging the question, he argued that only ONE exit was confirmed, saying: “We can only do that with the (ones) we know definitely. I think it's only Div (Origi), right?"
Klopp is well aware that Milner is out of contract in the summer, with the midfielder wanted by both Leeds and Newcastle, for his leadership and experience. And that strongly suggests the midfielder is engaged in talks over another year's contract extension at Anfield. And it wouldn't be a big surprise either.
Klopp wants Milner to stay, and has made clear to his board the midfielder will be important next season, regardless of his age. And it seems he wants Adrian to stay on too, with his comments that only Origi is confirmed to depart so far. The veteran keeper is a popular member of the squad, and an important role model for rising star Caoimhín Kelleher.
