Andrew Robertson has signed a new contract with Liverpool which runs until the summer of 2026.

The 27-year-old has missed a total of just four games since joining the Reds from Hull City for £8m in 2017 and started all 38 Premier League games last season.

Only forward Sadio Mane provided more Premier League assists (8) than Robertson's seven last term, with the full-back also registering 11 assists in 2018/19 and 12 in 2019/20.

However, Robertson has missed the start of the new campaign with ankle ligament damage sustained during the pre-season friendly against Athletic Bilbao.

On the announcement, Robertson told Liverpoolfc.com: "Obviously when the negotiations started and it looked as if my future was going to be here longer term than what it was, then I think it's no secret that I'm happy at this club.

"I want to stay at this club for as long as possible and to extend my stay, it's always a happy time for me, for my family.

"We're settled here, we love everything about this football club and I'm glad that the journey is continuing."
