Trent Alexander-Arnold has signed a new five-year contract with Liverpool FC, the club have confirmed.
Having joined the Reds the age of six, the 20-year-old fullback has so far made 67 appearances in all competitions and found the opposition net four times.
Even though his previous contract was supposed to be valid for two and a half years more, the club have obviously felt it proper to reward his progress, quality and relentless efforts with fresh terms.
“I’m ecstatic and really proud,” he told Liverpoolfc.com. “I feel privileged to have the support and the trust the club has in me to offer me a new deal.
“There was no doubt in my mind to sign and extend the years I have with the club. Hopefully we can achieve a lot of success in those years.
“As soon as they offered the contract, there was no hesitation whatsoever. The thing that made it easiest for me was having the people around me to make sure I was able to focus on football as much as possible and get the deal done as soon as possible. That is down to my brother especially, my manager, who took that role and allowed me to focus on football and not get distracted, which is the main thing.
“The last 18 months especially have been very special. Hopefully the next 18 months and even further on than that will be even more special.”
Trent follows in the footsteps of Andy Robertson, who extended his deal with the club on Friday.
