James Milner will stay at Anfield next season. At least that is what former Liverpool defender and Scotland international Steve Nicol had said for ESPN FC about the Englishman. Milner’s contract is set to run out on 30 June, but Nicol is sure he will get a new deal at the club.
“Absolutely no chance he goes anywhere other than his car to drive to Anfield to sign a new deal. It would be absolutely crazy, he’s been a huge part of this year again. Regardless of his age, Liverpool will need him next year. Maybe he won’t play as many games, but he’ll be needed for cover all around the field.”
Liverpool are set to play their second consecutive Champions League final on 1 June against Tottenham Hotspur and it is probable that all deals will have to wait until the match is played. Milner is 33 years old and has been at the club for the past four years.
