Kelleher signs new long-term contract at Liverpool

The much-loved goalkeeper needs to be patient in pursuing regular outings for the Reds, but his potential has been limited

Caoimhin Kelleher has signed a new long-term contract at Liverpool with the 22-year-old goalkeeper seeing his impressive progress at senior level rewarded.

The promising striker has become a full-fledged international with the Republic of Ireland, while in Premier League and Champions League matches at club level.

His path to regular first-team football at Anfield is blocked by Brazilian star Alisson, but the Reds are eager to ensure that they remain the only ones to benefit from his long-term potential.

What was said?

Kelleher told Liverpool official site to engage in new conditions: “I am happy to have crossed the line and finally finished; it was in the works for a few months with negotiations and everything, so I’m so glad I did.

“For me it was a positive moment to engage my future at the club for the next few years.

“It’s such a great club and it’s an honor to be a part of it, so when I got the chance to sign for a few more years, I was obviously delighted.

“I just want to keep improving at the club, really.”
