Oxlade-Chamberlain signs new long-term contract at Liverpool

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has signed a new contract, which will keep him at the club until 2023.

The former Arsenal man, who joined the Reds in the summer of 2017,  had three years left on his current contract and has extended it by another year. 

The Englishman missed a huge chunk of last season due to a serious knee injury he suffered last April, which kept him out of action. 

Speaking after penning the new contract, Chamberlain promised to bounce back even stronger and make up for the lost time at the club.

“I’m really, really excited - it’s been in the pipeline for a little while, so it’s nice to finally get it done and just extend my time here, which I am really looking forward to,"

“I feel like I missed out on a year, which I obviously did, so it’s really exciting for me to be able to sign. It’s something that I feel is an opportunity to give that year back and make up for lost time – and hopefully put in some good performances to make amends for not being around last year,”

“You’ve got to count your blessings every time you get an opportunity like this, you don’t get the chance to play for Liverpool Football Club every day. I am really excited to be able to extend my time here.”

Chamberlain has shown signs of his former self since returning from the injury, and was in action last weekend at the St. Mary's against Southampton

He might be in line for some further action against his former side when they travel to Anfield for a top-of-the-table clash on Saturday.
