The Spanish shot stopper joined the Reds on a free transfer in August 2019 after Simon Mignolet's departure and Adrian has made a total of 24 appearances for Liverpool.

Adrian was an important member of the Liverpool team at the start of his tenure at Anfield, winning the first trophy in his career after Liverpool beat Chelsea 5-4 on penalties in the European super cup (where Adrian saved the final Chelsea penalty).

Adrian also played in the league in the title winning season 11 times for Liverpool adding a Premier League winners medal to his collection.

It seemed as though the emergence of Caoimhin Kelleher's talent would relegate Adrian to third choice 'keeper but it seems Liverpool are planning to keep Adrian next season too.

Adrian spoke to Liverpoolfc.com and stated “I’m delighted, I’m very happy to stay in the club”

"It’s a reward from the club for the hard work that I’ve been doing since I signed two years ago. I really appreciate that confidence from the club, from the manager and from everyone involved in that situation.

The 34-year-old has clearly impressed the Liverpool backroom staff and Jurgen Klopp as he looks to extend his stay on Merseyside in search of more silverware.

It is perhaps Adrian's character and abilities as a person which has made the decision easier for The Reds, with Adrian seemingly an important member of the team behind the scenes.

“As Jürgen said, I’m a team player – I try to support, to give that confidence to those players, to try to give that confidence in the dressing room, in the training ground every day. To push each other."

Whether second or third choice goalkeeper depending on Kelleher's movements, the Spaniard is set to stay for another season on Merseyside.
