Liverpool defender Joe Gomez committed his future to the club by signing a new long-term deal with the club at Melwood on Monday. Extending his three-and-a-half-year stay with the club, the England international inked the fresh terms that will keep him at Anfield until 2024.

After signing the contract, the 21-year-old defender said he loved playing and learning with the club.

“Signing this new deal means the world to me. I’ve been at the club a few years now and have had the pleasure to play for Liverpool and experience what that means, so I am delighted to get the chance to extend my contract here,” he told Liverpool website.

Since joining from Charlton Athletic in July 2015, Gomez has made 59 appearances for the Reds and earned six England caps.

The young defender has been ruled out for six weeks after suffering a fractured leg during Liverpool's 3-1 win against Burnley at Turf Moor last Wednesday night.

The former U21 England captain was also sidelined for a year with an anterior cruciate ligament injury while playing for the national side in October 2015.

Gomez, who donned jersey No 12 is relishing the prospect of playing a key role in helping bring silverware back to Anfield over the coming years, Liverpool said.
