Liverpool right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold has signed a new long-term deal with the club.
Alexander-Arnold made his breakthrough for the Reds last season, with his competitive debut coming in the EFL Cup against Tottenham.
The 18-year-old played in 11 more games, including seven in the Premier League, and will now challenge Nathaniel Clyne for a regular place in Jurgen Klopp's starting XI.
"It's exciting, a proud moment for me and my family. I'm excited for the good times ahead, hopefully," he told Liverpoolfc.com.
"But I've said before, the hard work definitely doesn't stop now. It's only just beginning. Hopefully I'll have many more moments like last season in this season and the seasons to come.
"I can't take it for granted, the position and opportunity I've been given. Every day I'm trying to maximise the opportunity and do well.
"You can never be satisfied with where you are. There is always room for improvement. It's not a good thing if you ever are satisfied in football, you've always got to strive for better.
"Maybe you can dwell on achievements for a little bit but you can't dwell on them for weeks or months. You've got to get back to the hard work.
"That's what I'll do straight away - I'll get back into training, I'll work hard and I'll try to fight for a place in the team."
