Reports: Van Dijk has no intentions of leaving Liverpool, Gini to sign a new contract
The news from Melissa Reddy last week that both Alisson Becker and Virgil Van Dijk are to be offered new, long-term contracts that would be very lucrative for both was great news.
But news today from the Athletic (from James Pearce) will delight Liverpool fans further, as they have reported that Virgil Van Dijk has no intention of leaving Liverpool.
In a Q&A with fans, it appears that former Liverpool Echo Pearce has stated that Van Dijk has no intention of leaving the club, after links to Juventus this summer.
The journalist also suggested, much like Reddy herself last week, that Van Dijk is preparing to enter into negotiations with the Reds over a new contract.
And to further reinforce those reports last week, he also said that it will only be a matter of time before Gini Wijnaldum signs a new contract. So it's basically 'when', rather than 'if'.
Great news all round for two of the clubs key senior players, both of whom will be crucial for us in the run-in this season and in the seasons to come.
