Joe Gomez has signed a new six-year deal at Liverpool and supporters have unsurprisingly been left delighted with the news.
Gomez penned a new-and-improved contract on Monday, keeping him at the club until the summer of 2024.
The 21-year-old is currently nursing a broken leg that will keep him out until next year, but it is still a significant piece of business.
Gomez had arguably been Liverpool’s best player this season prior to his injury and his reputation across Europe was continuing to soar.
There are few more exciting young centre-backs in the world, so nailing him down to a long-term deal at Anfield can only be a positive.
Here’s a look at the best reactions from Liverpool supporters on social media.
Joe Gomez, who has been immense this season, has signed a new five-year deal with #LFC. He has continuously proved not just his class and quality at Anfield, but his character too. Excellent for the club to secure a supreme young defensive talent for the long term.

? Amazing news that Joe Gomez has signed a new six-year deal. Already one of the best centre-backs in the Premier League, and still only 21.
Crucial that he's committed to 2024, two years after Klopp is set to leave, unlike Salah, Mane and Firmino (all 2023). pic.twitter.com/SBvQdKVYNM

Fantastic stuff. Already one of the best defenders in the league and still only 21 years of age. https://t.co/wfb8GtINlM

That Gomez news is a perfect pick-me-up on a Monday morning.
A genuinely outstanding prospect – someone who can go on to be a Reds great if he avoids serious injury.

I know nothing is guaranteed, but these two being our CB pairing for the next five years, fills me with so much optimism? pic.twitter.com/3DRxaAr6Os

Great news about Gomez, we’ve got a team high on quality and that are still improving and the majority are now signed up for multiple years. The futures bright.

Reckon Joe Gomez can be as good as Rio Ferdinand. https://t.co/W21Zl6mmhZ

Robertson will pen a new deal soon and Liverpool will have everyone they want to be here long term on lengthy deals
