    Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has today reaffirmed his commitment to Liverpool FC by signing a new long-term contract at Melwood.

    The midfielder put pen to paper on a fresh deal which extends a spell with the Reds that began when Oxlade-Chamberlain joined the club from Arsenal in August 2017.

    The No.15 has made 47 appearances and scored five goals for Liverpool to date and was part of the squad that clinched European Cup glory in Madrid in June, having overcome a serious knee injury sustained in April 2018.

    “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,” Oxlade-Chamberlain told Liverpoolfc.com after signing the new contract on Thursday.

    “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.”

    The England international has featured three times in the 2019-20 campaign – and made his first Premier League start in 16 months in Liverpool’s 2-1 win at Southampton last Saturday.

    With a full pre-season under his belt too, Oxlade-Chamberlain is determined to produce the levels of performance that established him as a fan favourite again throughout the season.

    “I can promise the supporters that I'll give them absolutely everything moving forward,” he added. “There might be times where I have bad games and good games and moments where it's not so good, but I'll always work through those moments and give my everything to correct them and keep pushing this team forward.

    “I hope that I can do some special things like I did before I got injured and, most of all, be a part of this group of players that go on to hopefully win more things.

    “I'm really excited to see what the future holds for us all and I look forward to seeing them every game moving forward.”

    Shit. I plugged it in but I didn't hit the switch. It's only on 5%. Give it half an hour.

    Is it a ban stick/PS4 controller? If so, it will always be nearly empty. Tis the unwritten law.

    Not too happy with this, if I'm honest.

    Injury prone, not really pulled up any trees, probably still a few years left on his current deal...

    He's not that old, but in two years if he were in the last year of his contract he'd be worth £20m at best. With this new contract he'd fetch £35m upwards. Paying him an extra couple of million over that time makes complete sense.

    Klopp really loves this guy.
    I think he sees a bit of himself in him.

    He's probably not on much higher wages, it's signed for longer, and this will no doubt give him a confidence boost, it's win win.

    It's good we're getting all our players tied down to longer deals.

    Ox plays a big part in this team if he stays fit.

    He needs to reward us with some better performances now he's got himself a payrise. He was excellent at times when he was fit, although a bit sporadic. He's been fairly anonymous so far this season. Hopefully Klopp knows what he's doing with this one.

    I like him,  his attitude is fantastic and he gives us something no other midfisld3 player does currently. Thats said I dont thin hes really done enough to earn a bump in pay and an extension. Really feels like this could have been held back until the summer when we could fully asses his recovery.
