In the last two seasons Adam Lallana has endured a couple of injury-ravaged campaigns at Liverpool.

And since regaining his fitness, he has found himself down in the midfield pecking order for Jurgen Klopp’s Reds. Though, the former Southampton academy product ended 2018/19 on a high with a Champions League medal.

With Lallana’s playing minutes limited thanks to injury and then the impressive form of his midfield colleagues, a number of newspapers linked him to a move back to the Saints in a bid to return to regular first-team football.

However, speaking after Liverpool’s most recent Champions League success, Lallana insists he has no interest in leaving Merseyside and is willing to fight for his place in Klopp’s side.

”I’ve got a year left on my contract,” Lallana told PA Sport. [H/T the Metro] “I’ll be back, I’ll be training through the summer.

”I am as eager as ever to get fit because I know when I’m fit I’ve got a lot to give and I can get in this team.”

When asked about the rumours circulating around a Lallana transfer away from Liverpool, the 34-cap England International quashed any talk of him wanting away from Merseyside.

“Absolutely no question about it. I couldn’t be happier here, winning Champions Leagues.

”I know my ability and I know what I can give.

”And the gaffer and his staff and the recruitment guys have all made it clear they know I have a big part to play with what’s to come next, so I’m buzzing with that.

”No question my future is here and I can’t wait for what’s next.”
