Liverpool star signs new long-term contract at Anfield, Jurgen Klopp will be delighted

Liverpool youngster Curtis Jones has signed a new long-term deal with the Merseyside club.

The 21-year-old has put pen to paper on a new contract which will keep him at the Reds until 2027, according to Sky Sports.

Jones has made 81 appearances for Jurgen Klopp's men and started in the under-9s team.

He has already won the Premier League, FA Cup, Carabao Cup and Community Shield in his short time at senior level.

Speaking to the official club website, he said: “First of all, I want to thank the coaching staff for having the belief in me as always, for giving me the chance.

“And of course for me, I’m over the moon, I’m buzzing. It was an easy thing [to decide to renew].

Jones: It's the perfect place for me

He continued and said: “It’s my boyhood club, I’m a Scouser, I’ve supported the club for the whole of my life, so yeah, I’m buzzing and I can’t wait to see what the future holds.

“For everything, really. I think if I was at a different club as well, my goal and aim and dream would always be to come here and play. But I’m here now, I’ve been here since I was six, I’ve gone all the way through.

“I’ve supported the team for the whole of my life and especially now with how the team is and the coaching staff around me, I just feel that it’s the perfect place for me and again, as I said, I can’t wait to see what the future holds.”

Jones made history in 2020 when he became the club's youngest ever captain at just 19 years and five days old.

He captained the Reds against Shrewsbury Town in the FA Cup back in February 2020.
