Liverpool have handed a new long-term contract to promising teenage midfielder Curtis Jones.
The 18-year-old signed his first professional deal with the club last February after making his Under-23s debut a month earlier.
Jones has featured in four senior matchday squads, including being named as a substitute in the Merseyside derby draw with Everton at Goodison Park in 2017-18.
"At the point I'm at now in my career I think it's very important to take decisions slowly. But this one was easy and straightforward." 👊— Liverpool FC (@LFC) August 16, 2019
