Liverpool defender Joe Gomez has signed a new long-term contract, the club have announced.

The 19-year-old has made nine appearances for the club, but has seen his progress stunted significantly by a series of injuries (knee and Achilles problems) since joining in 2015, limiting his playing time before a return to first-team action against Plymouth in the FA Cup.

"After signing the long-term deal, he said: "It's a massive gesture from the club to show that trust and faith in me.

"That's why it was so important I did the same and got it done it so quickly, because I'm very happy here."
