Liverpool midfielder Fabinho has signed a new long-term contract with the Premier League club.

The Brazil international is the second key member of Jurgen Klopp's team to commit their future to the Reds after full-back Trent Alexander-Arnold penned a fresh deal last week.

"I'm delighted to have signed a new contract with the club," Fabinho told Liverpoolfc.com. "Since the beginning of the conversation, I was really positive about it because it's what I wanted - staying in this club, keep playing for Liverpool. Now this is official and I'm really happy.

"These last three seasons I've been really happy here. I learned a lot with the manager, with all the staff, with the boys as well.

"We achieved things together and for me I think it's the best place to be, the best place to keep growing, to keep learning from the staff, from the boys. Hopefully we will keep achieving good things."

Fabinho's previous terms were due to expire in the summer of 2023 and his renewal is part of Liverpool's plan to tie down the futures of several experienced players during the coming months.

The PA news agency understands the club are eager to renew the contracts of Mohamed Salah, Virgil Van Dijk, Alisson Becker and Andy Robertson.

It comes after midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum left on a free this summer after he failed to agree new terms, with Paris St Germain able to secure the services of the Holland international.

Since Fabinho moved to Anfield from Monaco in 2018, the midfielder has played an integral role in their Premier League and Champions League success, adeptly switching between his usual midfield role and a position in the heart of defence.

The 27-year-old has played 122 times for the Reds, scoring three goals - most notably against title rivals Manchester City during the 2019-20 campaign
