Defender Martin Kelly has signed a new long-term contract with Liverpool, the club have confirmed.

Kelly, currently out with a cruciate knee ligament injury, this afternoon put pen to paper on a new deal at Anfield.

The 22-year-old told www.liverpoolfc.com: "I'm delighted to have signed. It means everything to me and my family. I've been at Liverpool since I was seven, so it's in my heart and I love the club.

"When you play in the Liverpool shirt, you have to show the fans what it means. I just love playing and trying my hardest for the supporters and for my family.

"Being a Liverpool supporter myself, it's brilliant to put the shirt on and I'm doing what I have loved doing since I was a kid. I'm over the moon.

"Today shows the faith that the club have in me and that the hard work I have put in since I was young has paid off. Hopefully I'll put the injuries behind me."
