Jota extends Liverpool contract till 2027

Liverpool forward Diogo Jota has signed a new five-year deal with the club which will keep him at Anfield until 2027.

The contract extension is a reward for his fine display for The Reds since he switched from Wolves in 2020.

He has now joined the likes of Mo Salah, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Jordan Henderson and Fabinho in committing his long-term future to the club.

The Portuguese star was speaking shortly after signing the dotted lines and expressed his joy for being an important player in Jurgen Klopp's team.

“Well, [I’m] really proud, I have to say,” he told Liverpoolfc.com.

“Obviously since I arrived two years ago I established myself as an important player in this team – that’s what I wanted from the beginning.

“Now, signing a new long-term deal, it’s obviously from the club’s perspective proof of the belief in myself as a player. For me, obviously it’s really good to establish I’ll be here for a while.

“So, the beginning of a new season, let’s do it.”

The 25-year-old netted 21 times in all competitions for the Reds last season, but faces a stiff competition for a place this term following the arrival of Darwin Nunez from Benfica.
