Joe Gomez Signs New Five-year Contract With Liverpool

share on:

Following speculation this week, Liverpool have confirmed that full-back, Joe Gomez has signed a new long-term contract at the club.

The 19-year-old centre-back, who signed from Charlton for £3.5m in 2015, has recommitted until 2020.

Gomez has made five Premier League starts for the Reds and nine overall, including two in the FA Cup this season.

The youngster is set to feature in Liverpool’s fourth-round clash with Wolves on Saturday lunchtime.

Joe Gomez had already impressed under former boss Brendan Rodgers, who installed him in Liverpool’s first-choice starting line-up following his £3.5m move from Charlton Athletic.

Speaking to his club’s official website on Friday, he stressed how  thankful he was to Klopp and Liverpool for showing faith in him throughout his long lay-off.

“It’s massive. It means a lot to me – it’s a massive gesture from the club to show that trust and faith in me. That’s why it was so important I did the same and done it so quickly, because I’m very happy here,“ he said.

“I’ve loved living here and playing here and learning under the new manager, so it was a quick decision.”
