Barclays Premier League side Liverpool is said to be lining up a new deal for the club’s German manager Jurgen Klopp, who has been with the team for only nine months.
The deal, which BBC Sport reports will be issued in the near future is aimed at showing the manager the trust the club has in him and also a deterrent for future interest from competitors.
The German, who made a name for himself while in his homeland with Borussia Dortmund, signed a deal to see him stay with the club up to 2018 and in his first nine months, led the team to two finals.
Under his stewardship Liverpool advanced to both the Capital One and UEFA Europa League finals, losing to Manchester City and Sevilla and the Liverpool management has shown keen interest in extending his deal.
However, being already a top earner, BBC Sport reports that the manager’s deal will not involve financial add ons.
Klopp guided Dortmund to two Bundesliga titles as well as the Champions League final.
