Confirmed: LFC set to award midfielder new contract

Posted by

Liverpool are looking to tie Ben Woodburn down to the club for the foreseeable future.

The 17-year-old has become a household name in the past week as he starred in both of Wales’s crucial wins over the international break – scoring against Austria and assisting versus Moldova.

According to Paul Joyce in the Times, Woodburn will sign renewed terms with Liverpool in October.

There’s never been doubt that the teenager doesn’t want to stay at Liverpool, who’ve so far managed his development exceptionally.

This season, he’ll be a regular for the Under-23s, but will also hopefully feature in cup matches and make Premier League benches.

Last term, he made nine appearances in total, but will hope to better that in 2017/18.

Jurgen Klopp is the perfect manager for his development. Woodburn is going to be an attacking midfielder of some description when he fully matures, but for now, it’s just exciting to see a player of potentially elite talent come through our ranks.

Raheem Sterling was the last, but now we have Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joe Gomez and Dominic Solanke all threatening to become first-team regulars.
