Lucas Leiva signed new Liverpool deal

Liverpool midfielder Lucas Leiva has committed his long-term future to the club by signing a new deal with the Reds.

The 26-year-old Brazilian has quickly established himself as an integral part of the first team, since arriving to Anfield from Gremio in 2007. He has made 208 appearances in all competitions, scoring 6 goals.

Although Lucas Leiva’s career at Anfield has stalled due to series of injuries, he stays positive as to the near future under new boss Brendan Rodgers. He said: “It’s another long-term contract that I have signed - but it was the same feeling as when I first came here. I am really delighted to have the opportunity to play for this club. It’s where I think I belong and where I wanted to stay, so I am very happy and looking forward to a few more years here.

“It was an easy decision because after the long period of my career I have had here, I would like to give the best of my time to this club. It was not a difficult decision to make and I am really looking forward to what will hopefully be a few more years with a lot of success,” he added.
