Ben Woodburn has pledged his future to Liverpool by signing a new long-term contract at the club.

The 18-year-old forward, who made his senior debut last season against Sunderland, signed the deal at Melwood on Wednesday after agreeing fresh terms with Liverpool.

Woodburn became Liverpool's youngest ever scorer when he netted in the Carabao Cup win over Leeds last campaign and also notched a goal on his international debut for Wales in September.

"It's an unbelievable feeling to sign a new contract with Liverpool," Woodburn told Liverpoolfc.com.

"This is the club I want to stay at and be here as long as possible. When I was told, all I wanted to do was sign the contract.

"It feels good. Now I just want to carry on and hopefully show the manager what I can do."

Woodburn has so far featured only once this season - a 2-0 Carabao Cup defeat to Leicester in September - but remains determined to force himself back into Jurgen Klopp's starting XI.

Woodburn added: "I think there is loads of room for improvement. I've just got to keep working and trying in training every day and hopefully I will improve.

"Defending and maybe getting a few more goals [are what I want to improve]. Just trying to come in with the first team and play like a first-team player.

"But I think I've grown as a player and matured physically and technically, and grown in confidence.

"For the rest of this season, my aim is just to carry on, try to play as many games for the U19s and first team. Hopefully I will get some more appearances for the first team and progress in the U19s Champions League."
