Liverpool midfielder James Milner has thrown his future at the club into serious doubts after he admitted that he could leave the club at the end of the new season.

James Milner and Liverpool are currently on the preseason tour of the United States (US).

The veteran Liverpool midfielder spoke to reporters about his future at the club as he revealed that senior Reds officials were not ready to sit down for a new contract when he reached out to them last season.

James Milner is the assistant Liverpool captain, while compatriot Jordan Henderson is the club skipper.

He became a Liverpool player in the summer of 2015 when he joined the club on a free transfer from Premier League champions Manchester City.

The 33-year-old has contributed immensely to the recent successes recorded by Liverpool in both the Premier League and the Champions League.

He scored seven goals and also added seven assists in 45 games for Liverpool in all competitions last season as the Reds emerged as the Champions League winners via a 2-0 win over fellow Premier League club Tottenham Hotspur.

In total, James Milner has scored 22 goals and also provided 36 assists in 177 games for Liverpool in all competitions over a four-year period.
