With the Premier League season set to resume in two weeks and finish in July, players on the end of their contracts and season-long loans will have to agree to extend their deals on a case by case basis.

For Liverpool, the first noteworthy confirmation arrived today with news that Harry Wilson had extended his Bournemouth stay through the end of the season, ensuring the Welsh winger will see out the campaign with The Cherries.

So far this season, Wilson has made 27 appearances in all competitions, scoring seven goals and a pair of assists.

Previous talk had been that Wilson could be moving on from Liverpool permanently this summer, but the financial uncertainty caused by coronavirus could see the 23-year-old given a chance to earn a place with the Reds.

The situation could be similar for fellow loanees Marko Grujic, Ben Woodburn, Rhian Brewster—who has yet to confirm his Swansea extension—whose chances at Liverpool all appear improved by the current financial uncertainty.

Meanwhile, amongst players currently with the Reds on expiring contracts, Adam Lallana is yet to officially extend his stay beyond the end of the month but is expected to do so before moving on in the offseason.
