“We are very pleased he wants to commit long term, and I think he was pleased we went to him and asked him to commit long term.

“His best years are to come. Very often defenders peak between 26 and 31, so he is just entering into those years where a maturity comes in and his knowledge of the game gets better and better. We are happy his long-term future is at Liverpool.”
