If Keita and Milner are both renewing, it looks like a new midfielder's probably off the table for this summer. Probably the right decision if Tchouameni's going elsewhere, hopefully we'll see Jones and Elliott taking a few more minutes too.

Glad he is getting a contract extension. I thought he was good this season and at times excellent (Inter away, Benfica away, Villarreal away).

Mixed feelings on this one…

On the plus side we get more seasons of a top class midfielder at the club

On the minus side we get more seasons of having to battle bile and ignorance in the RAWK player thread

Exactly my feelings, always expected him to stay but glad to hear that it’s in the works.

At this point, he'd need to score worldies most weeks and top the assists chart all season for the bile to stop.

Of course even then one bad miss and we'd be off again.

We are saving good amount of money there, if it's true. I hope Keita will not face constant niggling injuries too, next season.

On another note... But when Naby is on his game, the Reds are always playing in full flow.  8)  8)

I am not sure another midfielder, Ox would stay or not... But he's reportedly attracting interest from Premier League clubs.

Glad that if Keita and Milner are both renewing.
It's there to remind our lads who they're playing for and to remind the opposition who they're playing against!

Watcing Naby play for his country is like watching a different player at times. His last minute winner against Malawi was great and followed an all action performance from him, different to his effective but controlled games for us. Perhaps with Nunez and a possible change of formation Naby might get a freer role?

That might be quite right.

I mean I've watched him quite a lot in the Bundesliga. He was one of the best midfielders over the years.

So I'll be glad if he continues at our place and hope he can continue there how his last season went.

Klopp said at the end of last season Naby is in the best shape of his life. Add a full pre-season to that (hopefully) and it bodes well.

The haircut has removed millimeters off his head but now he looks like a pro basketball player so looks taller.

So now Jota's signed a new contract, Naby is the last of the hold outs.

I wonder what the situation behind the scenes is?

Has he told them he wants a fresh challenge like Sadio did?

It seemed to be a done deal a few weeks ago.  I hope he stays but realistically he's not going to get a bumper contract like Salah and Jota as he's not performed at that level.  As a free agent he could probably negotiate a better deal elsewhere and be more pivotal to that team but he won't be playing for us and competing for every trophy going.

Not sure about that. Jurgen rates the guy and, with a new focus for attack in Nunez, Naby's talent for a forward pass will be very handy.

The qauilty is there but what about reliability. I think it will depend on the medical department opinion.

i hope he signs but on lesser terms but still competitive enough with what other clubs can compensate him with

think he knows that his reliability is an issue but if he is willing to play a squad role then he should stay. No other clubs will get him as much chances as a trophy haul other than maybe than the likes of bayern and psg.

how does he compare to our other midfielders in terms of minutes played? Thought he was having a pretty good season when his minutes was being rotated and managed with thiago.

Maybe, but he only missed 8 games through injury last season whereas Bobby missed 22, Thiago 23, Jones missed 14, even Trent missed 4 so it seems his injury worries are past him. Hope sp.

I really dont know what world people live in sometimes with footballers wages :D

He's just coming into what should be his prime years as a midfielder, he's won every trophy its possible to win since he joined, he's just probably had his best season here (certainly the one where he's played the most), he's seeing other first teamers getting pay rises....and you think he'd accept a pay-cut? I mean it'd be tremendous if we could just get our players to accept pay-cuts but in reality, its only going to happen at the tail end of their career ala Milner.
If he's being asked to head the ball too frequently - which isn't exactly his specialty - it could affect his ear and cause an infection. Especially if the ball hits him on the ear directly.

On his injury record, I think the medical department have realised that both he and Thiago shouldn't be playing every three days. They just don't have the physical capability to do that.

The solution was to rotate them.

It's also a lot easier with 5 subs.

I'm not sure he could get a better deal elsewhere given his fitness issues, even if you take into account free agents signing on fees.

I think the fact of the matter is that his signing is largely viewed as a failure by fans of other clubs, and even by lots of our own, and that is 99% down to his fitness issues. He has shown that when he gets a run of games he can be very good, if not quite the game changing midfield signing we expected, but his form always takes a massive dip after an injury which outside of last season was very often.

He also gets a ridiculous level of backing from both Klopp and the other staff, Ljinders really bigged him up in some of the recent quotes from his book, and seems like he is well liked within the squad.

I think an extension based on slightly improved terms with some appearance based clauses will probably be the way they end up going with Naby.

think the fact he took gerrards number and came with a massive fee didnt help.

we all kind of expected a full blooded all action midfielder but instead got a intelligent modern midfielder that is rather often injured.

not sure his all action role have been changed to our conservative midfield because of his injury record or because of the way we play. 

he is still only 27 and looking forward is coming to his peak as mentioned. Thiago and hendo are not getting any younger and future planning of our midfield is hopefully underway as our forward and defensive personnel seems pretty settled.

He's super over-rated on the ole twitter.

Its annoying, when Keita arrived, people thought he was the successor to Henderson. His fans turned on Milner, Wijnaldum and Henderson. Most recently, theyve even turned on Curtis Jones and Elliot. I'm pretty sure someone even compiled an every-touch compilation of Curtis Jones errors too. This isnt healthy.

As the window draws to a close, it would be interesting to see if any team tests our resolve with him.

I’m not really sure why any Liverpool fan wouldn’t appreciate him, given he’s a very good football player who has done very well for us when on the pitch and been unfortunate with injuries and a terrible national coach. The stats back this up and so does the eye test. Then there are those who were expecting the 2nd coming, whose disappointment has resulted in a harsher than fair judgement on him and those who’ve formed their opinion of him based on several poor games and nothing will shift it.

Baring in mind he reckons he's blocked by anyone with a good opinion of Keita, he probably counts anyone who doesn't think he's complete dog shit as overrating him.

Why a Liverpool fan would want to make it their mission to convince other people that someone who's a decent member of the best squad we've ever had is useless, I will never understand.
