Liverpool have announced that midfielder Lucas Leiva has signed a new long-term deal at the club.
The Brazilian midfielder has established himself as one of the Reds' key players in recent seasons, and although he has struggled with several injuries during that period, he has gone on to rack up 208 appearances for the Premier League side.
Speaking to Liverpool's official website, Lucas said of his new contract: "I am really delighted to have the opportunity to play for this club. It's where I think I belong and where I wanted to stay, so I am very happy and looking forward to a few more years here.
"It was an easy decision because after the long period of my career I have had here, I would like to give the best of my time to this club. It was not a difficult decision to make and I am really looking forward to what will hopefully be a few more years with a lot of success."
