The Liverpool academy has long been a proud source of talent for the club. Admittedly the turn of the century was a tough time for young stars to break through into the first team but we can still reel off an impressive list of graduates. Most recently we’ve seen Curtis Jones and Neco Williams emerge. Another promising youngster has agreed to extend his stay with Tom Hill signing a new long term contract at the club.

Tom Hill at Liverpool

Tom Hill joined the Liverpool academy aged just 6-years-old.

The box-to-box midfielder has risen through the ranks at the academy and has regularly showcased some Steven Gerrard like characteristics with his late runs into the box and determined pressing.

Born locally in Formby, Hill made his U18s debut last season and soon made his senior bow in the EFL Cup.

The youngster was afforded the opportunity with the first team unavailable due to their Club World Cup commitments.

Tom Hill signs new contract

This week Tom Hill signed a new long term contract with Liverpool.

The youngster signed his first professional deal at the start of the year which was extended over the summer.

However, having recently turned 18-years-old the youth player was able to extend for an even longer period.

The new deal is a tremendous show of faith in the youngster given that he recently suffered a serious knee injury.

Fans react to news

Congratulations were offered to the youngster.

He was wished luck by fans from across the world.

Some wondered why so many youngsters are getting long term pro-deals.

Another fan suggested it could be for resale value.

Of course, there were the same old jokes.

Which some fans seem to be getting tired of.
