Origi speaks on his Liverpool contract amid talk of new deal

The largely unexpected star of Liverpool's Champions League semi-final and final triumphs, Divock Origi, is more than likely going to be at Anfield for at least another 12 months.


Rumours since the game at Anfield against Barcelona claimed that Origi was due to be given the chance to stay at the club for at least another year and those rumours have only gained ground since his Champions League winning goal on Saturday night.


The 24 year old Belgian started the season as 3rd or 4th choice back up to Roberto Firmino and Daniel Sturridge (and possibly even Ben Woodburn) but has taken his chances admirably several times this season.


It's always clear how highly Jurgen Klopp rates Origi but the forward has often failed to live up to his manager's hype. Not in the past 6 months and he has now entered Anfield folklore and will be remembered as one of the fan's favourite European cult heroes.


Today, speaking on his future and potential new contract, he said: "The next few weeks we'll have to sit down and see what the future holds," said Origi.


"For now I just want to focus on these last few games (with Belgium) and then see after that.


"I want to speak to the club and my people internally before going public but hopefully the talks between me, the club and my people will be positive."


Div is now with Belgian on international duty and can look forward to - probably - spending the next year having his name sung from the Anfield crowd on a weekly basis.
