Liverpool’s 18-year-old left-back Jack Robinson has spoken of his joy at penning a new long-term deal at Anfield.
The promising defender has made five senior appearances having become the youngest ever player to represent the club after coming on as a substitute against Hull on the final day of the 2009-10 season.
Robinson has seen first-team chances limited following the arrival of former Newcastle left-back Jose Enrique this summer, but was eager to sign a new deal.
“I’m delighted,” he told the club’s official website.
“I was going for my lunch and I saw Damien (Comolli) on my way through. He pulled me to one side and said the club wanted to offer me a new contract.”
“There was no doubt in my mind, I was just so excited the club were offering me a contract.”
“I’ve just got to keep working hard in training. I can’t just sit back on this contract. I’ve got to keep improving and showing people what I’m about.”
Liverpool midfielder Charlie Adam followed up the announcement by tweeting: ‘Good too see liverpool signed up another young player in jack robinson one for the future.’
