18-year-old defender Luke Chambers has signed a new contract with Liverpool after a memorable summer for the youngster.
Chambers was part of the England U19 squad that won the European Championship and then traveled to Thailand and Singapore as part of Jurgen Klopp’s first team squad.
Liverpool recently confirmed contract extensions for Diogo Jota and Joe Gomez, as well as superstar Mohamed Salah earlier in the summer.

The youngster has been with Liverpool since the age of six and has successfully navigated himself through the academy to a first-team contract.
Chambers primarily plays in the centre-back position, however, he is comfortable playing left-back; it’s this versatility that will go a long way when considering him as an option for Klopp’s first team in the future.
The defender will likely follow in the footsteps of fellow Red youngsters in seeking first-team football elsewhere on season-long loan deals.
