Divock Origi agrees new Liverpool contract

Divock Origi has officially signed a new long-term contract with Liverpool.

Origi’s previous deal was due to expire next summer (2020), but the Reds were quick to tie their Champions League hero down.

“I’m very happy to be able to sign this contract and it gives you a boost at the beginning of the season,” he told the club’s official website.

“It’s an amazing club, we have a good group, the staff are amazing.

“Even coming into Melwood, the people that work here and everything, you feel there is something special going on here.

“I think the next years are going to be very special – prime years, maybe – and I’m going to try to use them to the fullest.”

The 24-year-old has scored 28 goals in 98 appearances for the Merseyside club, since joining in 2014.
