The Guardian is reporting that Raul Meireles wants to improve his contract terms, after the Portugese midfielder was promised a review by former Liverpool owners Tom Hicks and George Gillett at the end of the season.

Meireles moved to Liverpool last summer for £11.7 million, and was brought in to replace the outgoing Javier Mascherano. With an unstable financial situation at Liverpool at the time, Gillett and Hicks promised that the 28-year-old would get a review of his contract at the end of the season with a wage rise and long term deal in mind.


Fenway Sports Group has now taken over the Anfield club, but Meireles is reportedly still sure that when he opens talks with Kenny Dalglish, the Liverpool manager will honour the agreement made with the previous owners.

Meireles has starred for Liverpool this season, and has been a favourite for both Roy Hodgson and Kenny Dalglish. The playmaker said recently that he was hopeful a long term deal would be agreed.

"If I had this opportunity I'd sign a new contract today. [For] 10, 20 years, for sure,” Meireles said.

With the season ending on Sunday, and the transfer period just weeks away, Meireles is hopeful of reviewing his contract with Liverpool as quickly as possible.
