“I’ve been lucky and privileged to play for this club for four-and-a-half years now, it has been an amazing time seeing how the club is changing and developing,” Milner told Liverpoolfc.com.

“I just enjoy coming into training every day, working with this group of players, this manager and coaching staff, and being part of this football club.

“We had discussions with the club and this was obviously the ideal for me, this was what I wanted to do – stay and play at the highest level as long as I can.

“Liverpool is an unbelievable place to be and we’re a very, very good football team and hopefully we can keep improving.

“Obviously the gaffer waited to sign his dependent on whether I signed mine, so that makes me a feel bit more important!”

Milner joined Liverpool on a free transfer in 2015 from Manchester City and has gone on to make 198 appearances for the club.

He has scored 25 goals and appeared in five finals over his four-and-a-half seasons at Anfield.
