Liverpool goalkeeper Adrian is close to agreeing a contract extension at Anfield.
The 34-year-old had been interested in Spain by Real Betis, while Liverpool had tried out possible alternatives, but he is now ready to commit to another season as Alisson Becker’s understudy.
Adrian lost his place as Alisson’s deputy when Jurgen Klopp handed 22-year-old Caoimhin Kelleher a run of games in December.

However, Adrian kept a clean sheet when he was recalled for the Premier League win over Sheffield United at Bramall Lane in February.
Liverpool are ready to let Kelleher out on loan next season, recognizing that the 22-year-old will need a series of regular games to get started.
Goalkeeper Loris Karius, loaned to Union Berlin, is wanted by Stuttgart. The 27-year-old is under contract with Liverpool until 2022.
