Reds boss Brendan Rodgers told BBC Wales that he expects Allen, who has two years remaining on his current contract, to sign a new deal: “We’re at the early stages at the moment but the signs are good,” as quoted by BBC Sport.

Meanwhile, young defender Flanagan has been out for the entire 2014/15 campaign, having undergone knee surgery last September, but made a return to full training in March.

The former Swansea City boss still considers the full-back as an integral part of his future plans at the club, and is keen for a long-term deal to be finalised, with the 22-year-old’s contract due to conclude in the summer.

“Hopefully Flanno’s contract will be sorted out,” Rodgers said.

“He is working his way back to fitness and when that happens I am sure the contract will get sorted out.

“He is a big part of the future here. He did remarkably well last year and showed he is player who can play for many years at this level.”
