Liverpool have handed new contracts to David Raven and Zak Whitbread.Liverpool have handed new contracts to youngsters David Raven and Zak Whitbread.
The pair are graduates of Liverpool's youth system and have come to the fore this season.
Both Whitbread and Raven have yet to make their Premiership debuts, but they have been given their chance in the Carling Cup and they have helped The Reds reach the last four.
American-born Whitbread, 18, is central defender, while Raven, 19, can play anywhere in defence or midfield - although he is being used more at right back than any other position.
The duo have agreed two-and-a-half year deals to remain at Anfield and Rafa Benitez - who handed them their first team debuts this year - will be hoping they progress further over the coming months.
