Liverpool player signs new deal until 2027

Liverpool player signs new deal until 2027

He's committed his future to the club.

Liverpool midfielder Stefan Bajcetic has committed his future to the club by signing a new long-term contract at Anfield.

Bajcetic, 18, broke into the first-team earlier this season and has become an important member of the squad in recent weeks.

After helping the Reds to a 1-0 win over Wolves in their FA Cup third round replay earlier this month, Bajcetic was named in the starting line-up for the draw with Chelsea in the Premier League on Saturday.

The Spanish midfielder produced a solid performance as Liverpool were held to a goalless stalemate at Anfield.

He has now been rewarded with a new long-term deal, which is believed to run until 2027.

Bajcetic: I'm so happy at Liverpool

"Obviously I'm so, so happy, so excited to keep playing for this club and hopefully I can play more years together," Bajcetic told the club's website.

"Me and my family are very proud to sign a new contract with this club.

"It feels amazing. It's something I've been dreaming of in these two years I've been here and something that I've been working hard [for] as well."

In total, Bajcetic has made 10 first-team appearances for Liverpool this season – three of which have come in the Champions League.

It is a rapid rise for the youngster, who only joined Liverpool from Spanish club Celta Vigo in 2020.

"It's crazy," he added.

"A year ago I was playing U18s football and now I've started some games, made my debut and even scored a goal – that was something I never expected to happen this year.

"It's amazing to see how fast it went. But I keep working hard and hopefully [there are] more things to come."

The emergence of Bajcetic is a major boost for Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp, who has had to contend with midfield problems this season.

Should Bajcetic cement his place in the first-team this season, it would mean Liverpool need to sign one less midfielder in the summer – potentially freeing up more funds in the effort to sign Jude Bellingham from Borussia Dortmund.
