Liverpool fans react on Twitter to Andre Wisdom's contract extension

Andre Wisdom

Liverpool have given a new deal to Andre Wisdom, despite his mixed season at West Brom.

Andre Wisdom has been handed a new contract at Liverpool, the club have confirmed on their official website.

The 'long-term' deal commits the 22-year-old Leeds born defender to the club until 2019.

Veteran centre-back Kolo Toure was also signed to a one-year extension, but it is Wisdom's contract which creates the most intrigue.

The former England under-21 international has been on loan at West Brom this season, where he had mixed success, making 22 starts under Alan Irvine, but failing to kick on when he was replaced by Tony Pulis.

Wisdom ended the season out of the side, and did not make a start for the Baggies since late January, falling out of favour.

The Mail reported earlier this month that despite his omission at West Brom, Brendan Rodgers had pencilled in Wisdom as his first choice next season, keen for Emre Can to revert to midfield.

The defender being granted a long-term deal has provoked a mixed response among Liverpool fans, with some encouraged but others dismayed after his lack of success at The Hawthorns.
