Trent Alexander-Arnold has signed an improved contract with Liverpool that should keep him at the club until at least 2024, it has been confirmed.
News broke this morning that a new deal was in the pipeline, but it has already been completed, and both Trent and the boss are delighted.
Trent told LiverpoolFC.com: “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. As soon as they offered the contract, there was no hesitation whatsoever.”
Trent has played 67 times so far for the Reds, and there are definitely many more appearances to come. He’s already played at the World Cup and in a Champions League final – his ceiling is incredible.
When it comes to playing football, there is only one club for me. After 14 years at @liverpoolfc I am so happy to sign a new contract! Just want to say thank you to the fans for all your support on my journey so far ❤ #YNWA pic.twitter.com/oxMdkwQaeL

Jurgen Klopp challenged Reds fans to come up with a song for him in the wake of the news – and he’s right when he says he fully deserves one.
Klopp: “Liverpool supporters love Trent as ‘one of their own’, although I have noticed he doesn’t have a song from the fans yet, so maybe that is something they can work on. Wow, does he deserve one." #LFC

It’s not easy to find words that rhyme with Alexander-Arnold, though!
The contract news is exceptional for the whole club and will give everyone an additional lift heading into this afternoon’s match against Crystal Palace.
