Glen Johnson has revealed Liverpool are yet to open discussions with him over a new contract, but admits he is hoping to play out his days with the Anfield club.
His deal expires next summer and it has been suggested his wages are proving a problem.
But despite all the talk of a move away Johnson wants to see out his career at Liverpool
As quoted on the Daily Mail, he said: ‘I’ve loved every minute of the five years I’ve been here and I’d love to stay but really the only truth in it is that I’ve not been offered a new contract on any level.
‘I know some people have been saying Liverpool don’t want to pay me my current wages, but I’ve not heard that. No-one has come to me from Liverpool at all. I don’t know the situation the club are in or if they want to renew it. So I’ve not got a decision to make other than to see my contract out because no-one is telling me any different.
‘It is an unnecessary distraction. I’m more than happy to sign a new contract and I’d love to stay here for many more years. But at the moment that is not for me to decide because I’ve not been offered anything and I’ve not been told I’m going to be sold.
‘I just have to honour my contract and try not to let it distract me.’
