    Premier League News: Jones signs new long-term deal with Liverpool

    Curtis Jones has linked his long-term future to Liverpool after signing a new contract with the Premier League club.

    The 21-year-old has made 81 appearances for Jurgen Klopp’s side since his debut in January 2019, scoring eight goals and providing nine assists.

    Jones has only made seven appearances (two starting) this season due to injury.

    Speaking on the club’s website after the news was confirmed, the Liverpool midfielder said: “First of all, I want to thank the coaching staff for believing in me, as always, for giving me the chance.

    “And of course for me, I’m in seventh heaven, I’m buzzing. It was easy [to decide to renew].

    “This is my childhood club, I’m a scouser, I’ve supported the club all my life, so yes, I’m excited and can’t wait to see what’s in store for us in the future.

    “I think if I was also in another club, my goal, task and dream would always be to come here and play. But now I’m here, I’ve been here since I was six years old, I’ve come all the way.”

    Jones has won the Premier League, FA Cup, EFL Cup and Community Shield since his first team debut.

    He also became Liverpool’s youngest captain when he received the armband in an FA Cup win against Shrewsbury Town in February 2020 at the age of 19 years and five days.

    His goal against Sheffield United at Bramall Lane in February 2021 also made him the youngest Liverpool player to score away from Anfield in the Premier League since Raheem Sterling against Burnley in December 2014.
