Liverpool will hand central defender Mamadou Sakho a new five-year contract, which will keep him at the club until 2020.
The French international has been out of favour so far this term and has not yet started a game for Brendan Rodgers' side in the Premier League.
There was some speculation that 25-year-old could leave Liverpool in the summer but he opted against an exit, and having started in the 1-1 draw against Bordeaux in the Europa League on Thursday, the Mirror say that Sakho has agreed a new deal.

Although they give no details, the Mirror claim that Sakho has been handed a sizeable pay-rise along with a three-year extension to his current contract, which had 24 months still to run.
Centre-back Dejan Lovren has continued to struggle in a Liverpool shirt and is in danger of losing his spot against Norwich this weekend to Sakho, who insisted after the draw against Bordeaux that he is committed to holding down a first-team spot this season.
“There are no problems. I’m always ready. I work - I’m a soldier from Liverpool, that’s how it is,” he told reporters in France.
“When I’m called to play, I can be relied on. I am ready for Liverpool, and will be there when I'm needed. We have a very good young team, and we showed in Bordeaux we are good for the future.”
Liverpool could receive a timely boost for the game against Norwich, with captain Jordan Henderson in contention having responded well to treatment on a heel complaint after flying to America, while Adam Lallana is close to returning.
Have Liverpool made a mistake by offering Sakho a new deal?
