Liverpool midfielder Adam Lallana has no plans on a summer exit following the club’s triumphant Champions League campaign.

After just making 16 appearances last season, Lallana’s Liverpool future has been clouded in doubt for this summer’s transfer window.

The 31-year-old only managed a total of 568 minutes of football, with only the departed Alberto Moreno boasting few minutes of the senior members.

Not helping matters was Jurgen Klopp’s decision to omit Lallana from both their Champions League quarter-final and semi-final ties. While the German coach also left him out of Liverpool’s squad for the final six Premier League matches.

However, Lallana did return to the bench for the Reds’ 2-0 Champions League final win over Tottenham on Saturday. Despite not coming on, the England international celebrated with the team after winning the second trophy of his career.

And now the former Southampton star is expecting more glory to come at Anfield following last weekend’s breakthrough in Madrid.

“It’s pinching yourself stuff – and more to come,” said Lallana, according to FourFourTwo.

“A lot more to come.

“I’ve got a year left on my contract. I’ll be back, I’ll be training through the summer.

“I am as eager as ever to get fit because I know when I’m fit I’ve got a lot to give and I can get in this team.”

The Daily Mirror newspaper recently tipped Lallana to follow Moreno and Daniel Sturridge out of Liverpool this summer. It also stated the club are working on replacements for all three players.

When asked about these disturbing reports, Lallana said: ”Yeah. Absolutely no question about it. I couldn’t be happier here, winning Champions Leagues.

“I know my ability and I know what I can give.

“And the gaffer and his staff and the recruitment guys have all made it clear they know I have a big part to play it what’s to come next, so I’m buzzing with that.

“No question my future is here and I can’t wait for what’s next.”
