Liverpool midfielder James Milner has commited his long-term future to the club after penning a new deal with the reigning European champions.

Retired England international James Milner has signed a new two-year contract at Liverpool until 2022.

His previous Liverpool contract was expected to run out at the end of this season but the 33-year-old midfielder has signed for two more years.

The news of his contract extension was announced by Liverpool shortly after his manager also penned a new deal for another two years.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp had a contract that does not run out until 2022 but that has not stopped the club from giving him another two years to take him to 2024 at Anfield.

James Milner joined Liverpool from Premier League rivals Manchester City in 2015 on a free transfer and the veteran English midfielder has scored 25 goals in 198 appearances for Liverpool during his almost five years at the club.

He has played 21 times for Liverpool this season as the Reds have opened up an eight-point advantage at the top of the Premier League and also qualified for the Champions League group stage.

James Milner has won the Champions League title and the UEFA Super Cup title at Liverpool.
