The 19-year-old travelled with the Reds on their recent pre-season tour of the United States earlier this summer and featured in the wins over both Manchester City and Manchester United.

The promising goalkeeper said that it was an easy decision for him to re-sign with the club and added that he feels as if he's improving every day at Melwood.

“I’m very happy to sign a long deal with the club. I’m really enjoying my football here so I was happy to sign," he told the club's official website.

"Once the deal came in and I was happy, it was an easy decision really. I’ve been doing the same things but getting better every day. Training at Melwood, you improve much more. Alisson and Simon and Kamil are here and we train to the highest level every day.”
