Liverpool defender Joe Gomez has signed an extension with the club that will keep him at Anfield until 2024.
Gomez, who last put pen to paper on a fresh Reds deal in January 2017, has agreed new and improved terms once again after enjoying an impressive start to the new season.
The 21-year-old had made a starting berth alongside Virgil van Dijk at centre-back his own before fracturing his leg in last week’s 3-1 win at Burnley.
Speaking after penning his contract, which will keep him on Merseyside until 2024, Joe Gomez said:
“There have been a lot of highs and lows, it’s my fourth season now and every one has been different. Obviously, I would like to have had a few less setbacks along the way, but it has all been part of my journey – one that I have loved and embraced. I have learned so much.
“There have been good times on the pitch as well. Hopefully, that can continue. I am learning under a great manager and great coaching staff and have all the tools around me to keep progressing and learning. I am looking forward to it.
“All the signs show where the club is heading, where our team is heading,” he added. “We got so close last year in the European competition and in the league this year, we’ve shown such good character in the start to the season so far.
“[It’s] our best start ever as a club, so that shows if there is ever a time to have belief in the club and where we’re going, it is now.”
