Brendan Rodgers has reiterated his desire to keep Glen Johnson at Liverpool beyond the summer.

The England international’s current deal is set to expire at the end of the 2014/15 season, with the Reds yet to enter into talks with the former Chelsea man.

No contracts will be looked at until the summer but his will be a priority for us, especially if he continues in the form that he’s in

Johnson, who moved to the Reds from Portsmouth in 2009, has enjoyed a return to form following a spell on the sidelines.

And Rodgers, whose side are second in the table, hinted Liverpool would address the full-back’s future in the summer.

“We want to keep Glen here,” Rodgers told the ECHO.

“There is no question about that, especially now he’s in this form. He’s 29 and we feel that he has still got good years ahead of him.

“No contracts will be looked at until the summer but his will be a priority for us, especially if he continues in the form that he’s in.”

He added: “It just means you just have to sit, debate and discuss what’s best for the club and the player.

“The beauty of this is we want to keep Glen and Glen loves it here. We just need to find a solution which is good for both.

“If we can do that then the club will have a very good player for years to come.

“We have other players like young Jon Flanagan who only has one year left, while Jordan Henderson only has two years left. They have been great and we want to look at those contracts.

“That’s something that will be for the summer. The players can do themselves no harm by continuing to play in the form they are in. The club will then take a close look at it.”
