Liverpool – Liverpool
defender Trent Alexander-Arnold is the latest star to commit his future
to the Premier League leaders after signing a long-term contract.

Alexander-Arnold’s improved deal is reported to tie him to Liverpool until 2024.

The 20-year-old has emerged as one of Liverpool’s brightest young
stars as Jurgen Klopp’s side chase the club’s first English title since
1990.

Alexander-Arnold, who joined Liverpool at the age of six, is one of a
host of Reds stars who have pledged their futures to the Anfield team.

Andrew Robertson agreed fresh terms earlier this week, following in
the footsteps of Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah, Jordan Henderson, Sadio
Mane and Joe Gomez, who have all signed new deals since April 2018.

“I’m ecstatic and really proud,” Alexander-Arnold told Liverpool’s
website.

“I feel privileged to have the support and the trust the club
has in me to offer me a new deal.

“There was no doubt in my mind to sign and extend the years I have with the club.

“Hopefully we can achieve a lot of success in those years.”

Alexander-Arnold made his Liverpool debut in October 2016 after
graduating from the club’s academy and has since established himself as
the Reds’ first-choice right-back.

He made his England debut against Costa Rica last June and was part of Gareth Southgate’s World Cup squad in Russia.

“As soon as they offered the contract, there was no hesitation
whatsoever,” added Alexander-Arnold, who has made 67 appearances for
Liverpool.

“The thing that made it easiest for me was having the people around
me to make sure I was able to focus on football as much as possible and
get the deal done as soon as possible.”
