Liverpool Under-23s winger Harry Wilson has signed a new contract with the the club.

The Merseysiders announced on Thursday afternoon via their official Twitter account that the young Wales international had agreed to sign a new contract with the Reds.

The 19-year-old, who is still yet to be make his senior debut for the club also took to Twitter to share his delight at signing the new contract.

The one-time capped Wales starlet spent five months on the sidelines last season after suffering a broken toe.

The youngster made his return for the Reds just last week when the Under-21s faced FC Erzgebirge.

As well as his appearance against Erzgebirge, the young winger starred as Michael Beale’s U23s thrashed Welsh Premier League outfit Rhyl 4-1 on Sunday, with Wilson opening the scoring in the first half.

His injury absence as well as a disappointing loan spell with Crewe looked to have put paid to the youngsters prospects at Anfield.

However, Liverpool have moved to quash this belief and the young starlet will now prepare for a pivotal 2016-17 campaign.

Wilson is able to play on either wing, or behind the striker, but he is arguably best at cutting in from his favoured left flank.

In other Liverpool transfer news, Mario Balotelli has told Besiktas that he would prefer a move to a club in Italy, England or Spain.
