Nottingham Forest striker Ben Brereton has committed his future to the Championship club, despite interest from Liverpool this summer.
But as Forest confirmed on Thursday afternoon, Brereton has sign a new long-term contract to remain at the City Ground.
The deal ties him down until 2021, underlining Forest’s faith in a striker who scored three goals and assisted a further four in 18 appearances in his first senior campaign.
Brereton is a regular England U19 international, and is expected to be part of Keith Downing’s squad for next month’s European U19 Championship in Georgia.
Whether Liverpool were planning to move for the youngster this summer remains to be seen, but he was certainly on Klopp’s radar.
Brereton may have been an alternative to Solanke, with Klopp seemingly content with his more experienced options up front.
