Liverpool have officially announced that young striker Paul Glatzel has committed long term future to the Anfield outfit with a new contract.
The 18-year-old signed a new deal although he still has to continue rehabilitation for a knee injury he endured during a pre-season friendly against Tranmere Rovers on July 11.
Last season, Glatzel appeared for Liverpool's youth teams in the FA Youth Cup, U18 Premier League, UEFA Youth League, U18 Premier League Cup and Premier League 2, scoring 28 goals.
Speaking on his new deal, he said: ''I was disappointed to get my injury at the start of the season, but it's a great feeling and it shows that the club has got faith in me. Now I can just focus on my rehab and get back on the pitch.
"I've been at the club for so long and I just want to keep going and see where it takes me. Hopefully, I can crack on now and keep going. The contract makes it easier.
"Mentally, it's good to be able to focus on the rehab and know that there are people that have faith in me and they know I'll come back from my injury stronger and I'll be ready when I'm back on the pitch.''
Paul Glatzel is eligible to represent Germany and England at international level.
