Liverpool defender Jon Flanagan has signed a new three-year contract to signal the end of a two-year injury nightmare.

The 23-year-old's current deal was due to expire at the end of the season after he was given only a one-year extension last summer following 20 months out with a knee problem.

He made his comeback in the FA Cup third-round replay at home to Exeter in January after an absence of 619 days and has impressed in his four appearances since.

Press Association Sport understands Flanagan's new contract is for an initial two years with a 12-month extension option.
