As the season drags on, this Liverpool player continues to wait for a new contract. He’s got numerous clubs willing and waiting for his services, but he wants to stay at Anfield. So what’s the hold-up?
(Daniel) Agger, who has less than 18 months to run on his current contract, has confirmed he has not agreed a new deal and that he is ready to wait until the summer to sort out his future.
“There is no dialogue on a new contract with the club. It seemed like Liverpool were eager to close this deal and sign a new contract, but that proved to be wrong,” Agger told Ekstra Bladet.
“For me it’s ok to wait and see how things evolve in the summer. I believe that I am in a good position for negotiations and I wish for more time in the red jersey.” (Sky Sports)
Agger, who was a mainstay in the starting XI before the the injury, has never seemed to come around since then. Benitez brought in Martin Skrtel to fill the role, and since then the Dane has been nothing more than a blip on the radar.
What do Liverpool supporters make of Agger’s contract? Do you want him back, or would you rather the club ship him off?
