Ben Woodburn expressed his delight on Twitter at signing a new contract with Liverpool, after he pledged his long-term commitment to the club on Tuesday morning.
The youngster has signed a new deal which will keep him at the club until at least 2019, the club’s official website revealed this morning.
The 17 year-old first came onto the scene during Liverpool’s pre-season campaign when he scored two goals against Fleetwood Town and Wigan Athletic.
He is among the young trio, who have all featured under Jurgen Klopp since the German’s arrival, and both have put pen to paper on long-term contracts.
Alexander-Arnold and Stewart will now remain at the club until at least 2021, while Woodburn extended his deal for the maximum length for a 17-year-old, until 2019.
Klopp hail the Trio
Speaking on the announcement of the trio’s new contracts, Klopp hailed their impact and their potential, with each at different stages in their transition into the first-team setup.
“This is really positive news, of course, and it’s brilliant we have acted decisively to show our intent with our young players,” he said.
“With Kev it is maybe a little different. He is of course established with us now and making a contribution as an important member of our first-team squad.
“Trent spends most of his time with the first team in this moment and is progressing each and every day.
“Ben is in those earlier stages and has a lot of developing to do still—but wow, what an exciting talent he is.”
