Wales international Harry Wilson has signed a long-term contract with Liverpool, the Premier League club have announced.

The 21-year-old forward has been with the Reds since joining the under-9s team and he made his senior bow from the bench in an FA Cup tie with Plymouth in January 2017.

That remains Wilson’s only appearance for Jurgen Klopp’s side but he scored seven times in 13 Championship games for Hull during a loan spell last season.

Wilson won his first international cap in 2013 when he was just 16, breaking Gareth Bale’s record to become Wales’ youngest ever player in the process.

He then scored his first goal for his country in March on his 21st birthday when he was on target against China.

“I’m delighted to sign the new deal,” Wilson told liverpoolfc.com.

“When it got offered to me, I was desperate to get everything sorted so I could sign it fairly early on in pre-season because I want to focus on playing football.

“So, now this is sorted, I feel I can do that and push on and try and impress.”
