Liverpool fans scared over new Adrian contract and Caoimhin Kelleher loan exit
Liverpool's number two goalkeeper Adrian is edging ever closer to a contract extension with Jurgen Klopp's side, despite interest from La Liga outfit Real Betis.
Such was the concrete interest from Real Betis, Liverpool began to scour the market for a potential replacement, but after much deliberation he is thought to be ready to commit the next two-years of his career to life at Anfield deputising for Alisson Becker.
Adrian was thrust into action early on in his Liverpool career when he started a number of games after Alisson was injured on the opening day of the 2019/20 campaign, but a series of errors has left the Anfield faithful with minimal confidence in his ability.
Adrian was between the sticks for one of Liverpool's worst performances in recent memory, when the Reds were beaten 7-2 by midtable outfit Aston Villa.
News of a new deal has not gone down well with Liverpool fans on social media, who fear that with third choice keeper Caoimhin Kelleher thought to be spending the season on loan elsewhere, Adrian may be called into action one time too many next campaign.
Twitter user @l5starfc wrote: "Adrian will sign a new deal at LFC and be Alisson’s no.2 next season. Kelleher will go out on loan. [Simon Jones] so you get rewarded for making mistakes, I don’t know if I can cope with another season of Adrian."
Should Liverpool keep Adrian for another two years? Have your say in the comments section.
Another Reds fan, @Klopptinho took to twitter to say: "No but actually, why is Adrian signing a new contract with us? Worst player we’ve pretty much ever had, so many affordable options out there to replace him. Pathetic how we settle for him, really."
Adrian's first taste of Premier League action came while at West Ham, where he starred for the Hammers, establishing himself as one of their most reliable performers.
He spent six years in East London, winning signing of the season in his first campaign while also finishing runner up to Mark Noble for the "Hammer of the Year" award.
Unfortunately, he has failed to replicate that kind of form in a Liverpool shirt and is the subject of plenty of jokes from his own fanbase online.

One Reds fan, @LFCLaurie, is so against the idea of extending Adrian's stay, he compiled an entire thread of the Spaniard's worst mistakes in a Liverpool shirt.
The thread was introduced with the message: "With the news that Adrian is set to sign a new deal as our backup next season, here’s a thread of his errors and why this would be one of the worst decisions the club has made in a long time."
