Two new contracts, the latest news surrounding the future of Jude Bellingham and news of a LeBron James themed kit all feature in today’s Liverpool news round up.
1 day, 2 contracts!
Liverpool confirmed new deals for two of their promising young players today.
Tyler Morton, who is enjoying a fruitful spell on loan with Blackburn in the Championship, was one.
It is not often that a player out on loan will sign a new deal mid-season, which could hint at future plans for Morton when he returns to Anfield in the summer.
The other new deal announced was for academy forward Lewis Koumas, who has signed his first professional deal after his blistering form in front of goal this season.
Across the age groups this season, the son of former West Brom midfielder Jason Koumas has scored 11 goals and laid on four assists in 16 games.
It is only his first campaign as a striker, having previously turned out in midfield, but Koumas has already excelled in his new role.
