Liverpool defender Jon Flanagan set to sign new Anfield contract - source

Jon Flanagan has impressed Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp.

Jon Flanagan is on the verge of signing a new contract at Liverpool, a source has told ESPN FC.

Flanagan's current deal is due to expire this summer, but the club have been keen to commit him to a new one after he proved his fitness following a lengthy spell on the sidelines.

Liverpool have offered him a three-year contract extension, and a source close to the player has told ESPN FC the deal should be finalised soon.

The 23-year-old full-back spent more than 18 months out of action with a serious knee injury before making his return to first-team action in January's FA Cup replay win over Exeter.

Flanagan has gone on to make four further appearances this season, and has impressed manager Jurgen Klopp.

The Liverpool youth product caught the eye in Liverpool's recent 3-0 win over Manchester City with an assured performance against former teammate Raheem Sterling.

Flanagan, who made his debut in April 2011, established himself as a key member of the side that finished second to Manchester City in the 2013-14 season before the knee injury curtailed his progress.
