Liverpool youngster Max Woltman has become the second player to sign a new contract with the club as the season’s end nears, capping an impressive campaign.
Woltman has been with the club since under-7s level, and made a surprise step up to the first-team picture earlier this term with a debut in the Champions League.
It was a big moment for the Wirral-born forward, who was also joined in the squad by academy graduates Elijah Dixon-Bonner, James Norris and Harvey Davies, and he followed that up with a first start a month later.
With Liverpool now working their way through the post-season paperwork, the club have confirmed a new contract for the 18-year-old, who follows academy striker Fidel O’Rourke in penning fresh terms.
“Delighted to sign a new deal at this unbelievable club,” Woltman, who missed the end of the campaign through injury, wrote on Instagram.
“Been a positive season, looking forward to getting back to full fitness and doing what I love.”
SEG count Pep Guardiola and Erik ten Hag among their clients, with the majority of their business focused on the Netherlands, but they are building a strong base on Merseyside, too.
Morton is also represented by SEG, along with Liverpool under-23s midfielder Dominic Corness and Everton counterpart Lewis Warrington.
There is a possibility that Woltman follows up his breakthrough campaign with a place in the senior squad for pre-season, with preparations for 2022/23 set to begin in July.
