Liverpool left-back Kostas Tsimikas has agreed to a new long-term deal with the club.
The 27-year-old’s previous contracts were set to expire at the conclusion of the 2024-25 season, but it was reported earlier this month that the Greek defender was in line for an extension.

Tsimikas’ contract was not specified by Liverpool, however he is thought to have signed a two-year deal, keeping him at Anfield until the summer of 2027.

“I feel very glad to be here to extend my contract. I feel like all the sacrifices I did and other things, the work I put in, [that] everything pays off,” Tsimikas told the official Liverpool website.

“But this keeps me fully motivated for the rest. As I’ve said in many, many interviews, this team has many, many things to achieve all together and I wanted to be from the first minute a part of it.
“More success, more work and more trophies. For me it is the most important thing, to win trophies, to be committed in every situation, to be part of all of this.

“I think this team has very big potential to win more trophies and we will go for it. Everybody, I think, is 100 per cent there [and] focused for the next games and everybody is ready to achieve big things in the future.”

Liverpool forked out €13m (£11.3m) to poach Tsimikas from Olympiacos in the summer of 2020, as the left-back arrived on Merseyside to provide cover and competition to Andrew Robertson.


Tsimikas has played second fiddle to the Scotland international for the past three years, but he has still made 63 appearances in all competitions, assisting on 12 goals.

Tsimikas’ debut season at Anfield was marred by injury, and he appeared in just five minutes during the 2020-21 Premier League season, but he evolved into a key player for Jurgen Klopp in the months that followed.
Tsimikas helped Liverpool win the FA Cup and EFL Cup in the 2021-22 season, registering one assist in each competition, and while he did not start either of the two finals against Chelsea, he scored the winning penalty in the FA Cup showpiece match.

The Greece international also made a Premier League starting lineup on nine occasions, as well as providing two assists in a Champions League quarter-final clash with Benfica, as the Reds reached the final before losing to Real Madrid.

Tsimikas added six assists to his record from 28 appearances last season, including nine Premier League starts and four Champions League starts, but his only appearance in a first XI this season came in Thursday’s Europa League triumph over LASK Linz.


The former Olympiacos man has not appeared off the bench in Liverpool’s previous four Premier League games, but he is set to start Wednesday’s EFL Cup third-round match against Leicester City.


Tsimikas has extended his stay at Liverpool only days after Ben Doak signed a new long-term contract, while Adrian, Stefan Bajcetic, and Curtis Jones have also inked new deals in the last year.
