Liverpool defender Joe Gomez has signed a new contract which will keep him at the club until the summer of 2024.

The England international, currently out for six weeks with a fractured leg, has been impressive this season both alongside Virgil Van Dijk in the centre of defence and also at right-back, where he has alternated with Trent Alexander-Arnold.

His new deal is a significant improvement on the contract he signed in January 2017 and reflects his progress since then.

Gomez joined Liverpool from Charlton in the summer of 2015 as an 18-year-old for a fee of £3.5million.

A serious knee injury on duty for England Under-21s in October of that year meant he was sidelined as manager Jurgen Klopp replaced Brendan Rodgers but battled his way back to fitness.

However, an ankle problem sustained playing for the senior England side in March this year meant he missed the Reds’ Champions League final but he has bounced back from that to establish himself as Klopp’s preferred partner for Van Dijk.
