Cape Town - Glen Johnson looks set to depart Liverpool at the end of the season but is keeping calm about his Liverpool future.

The Liverpool Echo report that England international defender Glen Johnson insists he’s relaxed about his contract situation as the Liverpool.

"I’m very relaxed about my contract,”  said Johnson. 

“There are no talks going on with the club at the moment. There were minor talks towards the end of last season but nothing else.

“I’ve loved playing my football here from day one. I’m more than happy here. But obviously I can only talk to the club about it when they want to speak to me.” said the 30-year-old defender.

With no talks currently on the go and his weekly wages of £110 000, it appears that one of the club's highest earners may leave on a free at the end of next season.  

"In January I could (talk to other clubs), but I’ll worry about that when January comes,” said Johnson, who limped off during Liverpool's crushing 3-1 defeat to Manchester City on Monday evening.

“At the minute I’m playing for Liverpool and I’m happy here. I’m more than willing to stay.

“I’ll just concentrate on things here week by week. The manager has picked me so far. That shows he wants me here.” 

The former Chelsea player, Glen Johnson, has made 174 appearances for the Reds since his £18 million move from Portsmouth in 2009 and has become England's starting right back during his time with the Anfield club.
