Right-back commits future to Anfield club.
Liverpool defender Martin Kelly has signed a new long-term contract with the club.
The 22-year-old has made 54 appearances for the club since making his debut against Lyon in the Champions League in 2008 but has spent much of the current campaign injured, making just four substitute appearances since Brendan Rodgers was appointed boss in the summer.
“I’m delighted to have signed. It means everything to me and my family. I’ve been at Liverpool since I was seven, so it’s in my heart and I love the club,” the right-back told the club website.
“When you play in the Liverpool shirt, you have to show the fans what it means. I just love playing and trying my hardest for the supporters and for my family.
“Being a Liverpool supporter myself, it’s brilliant to put the shirt on and I’m doing what I have loved doing since I was a kid. I’m over the moon.
Kelly was a surprise inclusion in England’s Euro 2012 squad for the summer and made his senior international debut against Norway in a friendly in May last year.
However, with Andre Wisdom having broken into the Reds first-team this term and Glen Johnson on fine form, the youngster faces a tough ask winning a place in Rodgers’ side before the end of the current campaign.
