Liverpool fans, happy Wednesday!
We’d like to welcome you to today’s effort at something resembling a round-up. If there’s credible transfer news, we have it, if there’s breaking injury news, we have it, if there’s… you get the point.
Watch the video above to see yours truly hand out the headlines on a silver platter, or read on below if you’re that way inclined.
Brad Smith contract
Brad Smith isn’t a name exactly synonymous with Liverpool Football Club, but he’s an Anfield player nonetheless.
What’s more, it’s likely he’ll be an Anfield player for a good deal of time yet, having confirmed that he’s put pen to paper on a new deal.
The 21-year-old made his debut under Brendan Rodgers against Chelsea in 2013 but hasn’t featured for Liverpool’s first-team since.
He tweeted confirmation of his new contract, much to the surprise of fans.
Meanwhile, it’s good news on the Daniel Sturridge front, with the England international having returned to full training.
Sturridge picked up a knee injury just prior to Jurgen Klopp’s appointment, but will boost the squad with his comeback.
Lovren in for Sakho
Last but not least, not many supporters appear confident in Dejan Lovren’s ability to fill Mamadou Sakho’s shoes for the foreseeable, but the man himself believes he is adequately equipped.
Lovren is set to be handed a prolonged run in Klopp’s starting XI due to Sakho’s absence. Here’s to hoping his form can improve moving forward. It certainly hasn’t been all that impressive since his move from Southampton.
