Jurgen Klopp promises to ‘find a solution’ to Joe Allen’s Liverpool future

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has confirmed he intends to sit down with Joe Allen to discuss the Welshman’s future at Anfield.

The popular midfielder has been linked with a move away from the Merseyside club after an impressive Euro 2016 campaign with semi-finalists Wales.

The 26-year-old was a key figure for the Welsh during their run to the last four in France and his performances were recognised with inclusion in UEFA’s Team of the Tournament earlier this week.

Allen has been a more peripheral figure for his club, though, having started just eight Premier League matches last term, while his Liverpool contract is up at the end of the 2016-17 season.

However, Klopp has vowed to talk to Allen regarding his contractual situation on the back of his impressive summer.

“We will find a solution, but it’s not done,” Klopp told reporters after Wednesday night’s friendly win over Fleetwood.

“Obviously Joe Allen is a good player. We never doubted this. He played a good European Championship, like the whole Welsh team.

“We have to make decisions, we have to find solutions. We have to talk to the player, ask the player and think about our situation. That’s how it works.”
