Liverpool goalkeeper Adrian has sorted out his immediate future and signed a contract extension with the Merseyside club.

Jurgen Klopp's team failed to defend their title this year but are priced up at 5/1 to win the Premier League next season. The Reds are 1/4 to finish in the top four.

Adrian joined Liverpool from West Ham United in August 2019 and he has made 24 appearances in all competitions so far.

The Spaniard spent last season as the deputy to number one Alisson. Adrian made six Premier League appearances and kept three clean sheets in the process.

He faces a challenge for the role of Alisson's back up from Caoimhin Kelleher, the young Irish goalkeeper who has staked a claim with five appearances in all competitions for Liverpool.

However, in the 2019/20 season Adrian deputised for Alisson 11 times in the Premier League and Liverpool won every single game.

He spoke to the club website at his joy over securing the new contract and Liverpool's aims for the 2021/22 season.

"I'm delighted, I'm very happy to stay at the club," he said. "I really appreciate the confidence from the club, from the manager and from everyone involved in the contract situation. Above all of that, it's a pleasure to stay in Liverpool – it's such a big club. I am privileged."

Speaking of the plan for next season, Adrian added: "Our fans can be very calm and very relaxed because we're going to give everything to get those titles. We are Liverpool FC and we have to go for everything."
