Harry Wilson signs new long-term contract with Liverpool FC

10 July 2018

Liverpool winger Harry Wilson has signed a new long-term contract with the club, just six months after putting pen to paper on his previous deal.


Wilson has been with the Reds since the mid-2000s, and has risen through the academy ranks to the fringes of Jurgen Klopp‘s first team.

After a successful half-season on loan with Hull City last time out, the 21-year-old Welshman netted a brace in his first appearance of pre-season to help Liverpool win 7-0 at Chester.

With speculation mounting over another temporary spell away from Merseyside, the club have confirmed Wilson has agreed an extension to his contract.

He is reported to have signed a five-year deal, which will keep him at Anfield until at least 2023, though he is now expected to leave on loan.

Twelve clubs in the Championship have already contacted Liverpool over a possible season-long move, including relegated Swansea City, Stoke City and West Brom.

Hull have also expressed an interest, but after his productive run at the KC Stadium he should be targeting a switch to a club with promotion aspirations.

Wilson could even be ready for a spell at a bottom-half Premier League side, though the Reds will be eager to ensure regular game time as Klopp earmarks him for a future role in his side.

Speaking on the announcement of his contract, Wilson insisted his “short-term focus is to keep trying to impress the manager day in, day out in training.”

“[I want to] keep trying to score goals, [get] assists, help the team out and then I’m not looking too far beyond that,” he explained.

“I feel if I do well enough here, everything else will take care of itself.”

Liverpool have already allowed Ovie Ejaria to join Rangers on loan, while Adam Bogdan will see out the remainder of his Reds contract during his season with Hibernian.
