Liverpool prodigy Jon Flanagan is ready to commit his future to Anfield with a new four-year contract, according to reports.

The 21-year-old full-back has entered the final 12 months of his current contract with the Merseyside club, but recently revealed he was in talks to extend the deal.

"There have been some talks and I should be signing a new contract soon. It would be reward for all the hard work I've put in. It would be great for me and great for my family as well. All I've ever wanted is to play for Liverpool and I want to stay here for as long as I possibly can," he said.

The Sun reports that the negotiations have been successful and the youngster is now ready to sign a new four-year deal with Liverpool.

Rogers has bolstered both defensive flanks this summer by signing Alberto Moreno and Javier Manquillo, but claimed during the summer that he also wanted Flanaga to sign a new contract as he has big hopes for his future.

The English international became a crucial player for Liverpool in the second half of last season, taking advantage of Jose Enrique's injury and Glen Johnson's absences to gain a regular place in the starting line-up both on the right-side and the left.

Flanagan himself recently claimed he is expected to return to action for the next game against Aston Villa, after injuring his knee on 19 July during pre-season.

"I don't think it will be too long now and I think I should be back after the international break if all goes well," Flanagan said.

"It has been frustrating for me but I can't dwell on it. It was tough to pick up the injury in pre-season but I've just got to forget about that now and push on."
