Updated: November 2, 2011

Highly rated Liverpool defender Jack Robinson has been handed a new long-term contract at Anfield.

The 18 year old has impressed manager Kenny Dalglish over the past six months with some impressive performances and had been rewarded with a long term deal by the club.

Robinson became the youngest ever player to play for Liverpool when he made his debut against Hull in May 2010 aged just 16 years and 250 days and has made five first team appearences as second choice full back to Jose Enrique.

Speaking about the new deal, a delighted Robinson said “I’m delighted. There was no doubt in my mind, I was just so excited the club were offering me a contract.

“I was going for my lunch and I saw Damien Comolli (director of football) on my way through,” continued Robinson. “He pulled me to one side and said the club wanted to offer me a new contract. I’ve just got to keep working hard in training. I can’t just sit back on this contract. I’ve got to keep improving and showing people what I’m about.”
