Liverpool midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum has refused to be drawn on whether he will be signing a new deal at the club.
The 30-year-old’s current contract is due to expire at the end of the season and no extension has been agreed yet.
Wijnaldum was the subject of interest from Barcelona boss Ronald Koeman back in the summer, but no deal materialised.
When asked about his contract situation at Anfield, the midfielder refused to let any information slip and suggested the questions should be directed towards the club.
‘I can’t say anything about that,’ Wijnaldum told Dutch outlet Het Parool.
‘Just ask Liverpool those questions. Don’t they answer?
‘I cannot say anything about it, including whether or not there is talk of a new contract between me and Liverpool. Sorry.’
‘I think they need to keep him,’ Johnson told Compare.bet.
‘I think he’s a fantastic footballer, he’s one of those all-round midfielders, great on the ball, not an out-and-out goalscorer, and not an out-and-out defender.
‘So, he’s one of those utility men in midfield who can play in any one of the three positions.
‘And I think he’s a fantastic squad player and obviously, the experience he’s gained in the last few years is hard to replace.’
