Trent Alexander-Arnold signs exciting new deal with Liverpool

Trent Alexander-Arnold has signed a new long-term contract with Liverpool, and follows left-back Andy Robertson in committing his future.

Robertson signed an improved, five-year deal with the club on Thursday, becoming the latest in a long line of players to renew terms with the Reds over the past year.

Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino, Joe Gomez and Jordan Henderson have all put pen to paper, along with youngsters such as Caoimhin Kelleher, Curtis Jones, Bobby Duncan and Rhian Brewster.

* Option of another year

On Friday, Klopp delivered the surprise news that Alexander-Arnold is “really close” to returning from a knee injury that was expected to keep him out for up to a month.

It remains to be seen whether he features for Liverpool in Saturday’s home clash with Crystal Palace, with James Milner available to fill in, along with the likes of Fabinho, Rafa Camacho and Ki-Jana Hoever.

But regardless, the announcement of his new deal is a major positive, with the youngster staying with his boyhood club until at least his 25th birthday.
