Kopites are a fiercely proud bunch and take a particular pride in local lads becoming local heroes – see Steven Gerrard, Jamie Carragher and Trent Alexander-Arnold. Liverpool fans have been treated to some good news this weekend with the announcement that Curtis Jones has signed a new five year contract with the club.
Curtis Jones is as Scouse as they come. The Liverpool lad has been at the club since U9 level and has risen rapidly through the ranks at Melwood.
This has been a breakthrough season for the 19-year-old. The midfielder has been afforded regular starts in cup competitions and famously curled a worldie into the top corner to win the Merseyside Derby at Anfield – it just doesn’t get any better than that.
The youngster’s progress this year was enough to convince Jürgen Klopp to reward him with a new contract. The club have tied the teenager down to a five year deal on improved terms which will keep him at the club until the summer of 2025. Liverpool fans have had their say on the new Curtis Jones contract.
One Kopite was hoping that the rewards don’t stop there, tweeting that they’d love to see the youngster get more minutes as the season draws to a close.

Some believe that it’s only a matter of time before Jones cements his place in the Liverpool midfield.
