According to Liverpool’s official website, attacking midfielder Tom Hill has agreed on a contract extension with the club.

Hill, 17, is best renowned amongst supporters following an impressive cameo for Liverpool’s then-youngest-ever-side against Aston Villa in the Carabao Cup quarter-final clash back in December.

One for the future

The versatile academy graduate started and played the full 90 minutes against Dean Smith’s side while Jurgen Klopp’s first-team squad were halfway across the globe following their participation in the FIFA Club World Cup.

Hill predominately featured for the club’s U18s last season and clocked up an impressive tally of nine goals by March before the season was eventually curtailed due to ongoing global pandemic.

 

Touted as a tenacious and accomplished midfield, Hill’s work-rate and or timing of late runs into key areas have been fundamental in Liverpool’s youngsters’ success this season and Hill’s performances have not gone unnoticed.

Hill also featured for the young Reds in the UEFA Youth League last season and was on the scoresheet during a dramatic 3-2 victory against RB Salzburg which ensured Liverpool topped their qualifying group.

The Formby-born player has been part of Liverpool’s academy set-up since U6’s and has followed in the footsteps of Jakub Ojrzynsk, Conor Bradley and Leighton Clarkson who all recently signed professional deals.
