Philippe Coutinho pens a new long-term Liverpool deal
Philippe Coutinho has committed his future to Liverpool after the playmaker signed a new long-term deal on Tuesday.
The Brazil international has put pen to paper on new contract, which will reportedly keep the midfielder at Anfield until 2020.
Coutinho had been in negotiations with Liverpool for a number of months, finally sealing a new deal, speculated to worth £70,000-a-week.
The South American, who joined Liverpool from Inter Milan in 2013, was in brilliant form against West Ham United at Anfield on Saturday.
Coutinho teed up Raheem Sterling for the opener with a brilliant lifted pass before creating Daniel Sturridge’s 80th-minute strike in a 2-0 win.
The 22-year-old midfielder has scored two goals and has made four assists in 24 appearances in all competitions for Liverpool this season.
The South American has netted 10 goals in 80 appearances during his two-and-a-half seasons at Anfield following his switch from Serie A.
