Liverpool and England defender Trent Alexander-Arnold has signed a new long-term contract with the Premier League leaders.
The deal ties Alexander-Arnold to Liverpool until 2024, according to media reports, reflecting the progress the 20-year-old has made since his last contract in 2017.
"I'm ecstatic and really proud. I feel privileged to have the support and the trust the club has in me to offer me a new deal.
"There was no doubt in my mind to sign and extend the years I have with the club. Hopefully we can achieve a lot of success in those years.
"As soon as they offered the contract, there was no hesitation whatsoever. The thing that made it easiest for me was having the people around me to make sure I was able to focus on football as much as possible and get the deal done as soon as possible. That is down to my brother especially, my manager, who took that role and allowed me to focus on football and not get distracted, which is the main thing.
"The last 18 months especially have been very special. Hopefully the next 18 months and even further on than that will be even more special," Alexander-Arnold told Liverpool's official website.
"A bit of time and effort to give to someone and it can change their lives. I think the greatest goal of them all is to say you’ve changed someone’s life for the better."@trentaa98 on his new deal, making a difference in the community, his love for the Reds and more...— Liverpool FC (at 🏠) (@LFC) January 19, 2019
Alexander-Arnold has established himself as Liverpool's first-choice right-back since making his debut in 2016 — with 67 appearances so far — and played for England at the World Cup last year.
"As a player for LFC he is the embodiment of the sentiment 'We're never gonna stop," Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp said.
Arnold became the latest member of Klopp's squad to commit his future to the club.
Before him, Andy Robertson, Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah, Jordan Henderson, Sadio Mane and Joe Gomez have all agreed new deals since April 2018.
