18-year-old Trent Alexander-Arnold has been rewarded for his performances last season and dedication to his training with a new, five-year deal.
Trent Alexander-Arnold has committed his long-term future to Liverpool Football Club, signing a new five-year deal on Friday.
The 18-year old sealed the deal at Melwood – where he returned to for pre-season on Wednesday with the first wave of players – after agreeing on new terms with the club.
The youngster enjoyed a fine breakthrough season, making his competitive debut against Tottenham in the League Cup before being thrown in the deep end at Old Trafford for his full Premier League debut.
“It’s exciting, a proud moment for me and my family. I’m excited for the good times ahead, hopefully,” he told Liverpoolfc.com.

“But I’ve said before, the hard work definitely doesn’t stop now. It’s only just the beginning. Hopefully I’ll have many more moments like last season in this season and the seasons to come.
“I can’t take it for granted, the position and opportunity I’ve been given. Every day I’m trying to maximise the opportunity and do well.”
The Reds no.66 is looking forward to continuing on with his pre-season and attempting to improve more and more every day, eventually cementing a place in Klopp’s plans across the 2017/18 campaign.
“You can never be satisfied with where you are. There is always room for improvement. It’s not a good thing if you ever are satisfied in football, you’ve always got to strive for better,” added the teenager.
“Maybe you can dwell on achievements for a little bit but you can’t dwell on them for weeks or months. You’ve got to get back to the hard work. That’s what I’ll do straight away – I’ll get back into training, I’ll work hard and I’ll try to fight for a place in the team.”
Jürgen Klopp’s side kick off their pre-season fixtures on Wednesday with a match against Tranmere.
