Fekir Signs New Contract With Lyon

Liverpool FC signing Naby Keita

Liverpool FC signing Naby Keita

And the holding midfielder has outlined his delight at putting pen to paper on a five-year contract.

Salah's debut season with the Merseysiders saw him break records left, right and centre, as he went on to score 44 goals in 52 appearances across all competitions, 32 of which came in the Premier League, helping him win the Golden Boot award and also establish the highest ever tally for a 38-game season. That report along with his quotes is available to our members i.e. those of you who support us.

The 24-year-old France global saw his proposed transfer to Liverpool collapse at the 11th hour and the player subsequently finds himself in transfer limbo.

Lyon's decision to hand Fekir's brother a new contract has been seen by some as an attempt to affect the Liverpool target.

However, the tide has clearly turned this summer, and despite the widespread interest in Salah from Europe's leading clubs following a superb year of personal success, the English Premier League's Player of the Year has committed his future to the club that has provided the platform for his rise to prominence.

Is North Korea Balking at Denuclearization?

"I know we can achieve a lot of things together [and] I'm looking forward to seeing you".

"When someone like Salah commits and says this place is my home now, it speaks very loudly I think. Last season was special with many special moments - but we want more".

"The key thing to remember is the best thing about Mo is that he never sees himself as being more important than the team or anyone else within it".

"He has expressed his desire to play at another level", Lyon boss Genesio told reporters in France. Check out the brand new daily JOE World Cup Minipod hosted by Dion Fanning, Paddy McKenna and Carl Kinsella featuring JOE.co.uk Senior Football Correspondent and font of wisdom Melissa Reddy.

What Liverpool will try to do now is bridge the remaining gap between the undoubted progress made under Jurgen Klopp last season and what is needed to become consistent challengers for major honours - not just in one tournament in one season, but across the whole spectrum, every year.
