Liverpool midfielder Suso has been rewarded for his early season form with a new long-term contract at the club.

The Spanish under-19 international has been a calming influence in an experienced Reds midfielder after amid his four first team appearances this season.

And his form has earned a long-term new deal at Liverpool, and Suso explains Brendan Rodgers' faith in him has assisted his form.

Suso has been rewarded for his impressive form.

"I am really happy," Suso said. "Liverpool are one of the biggest clubs in the world and this is the right place for me.

"I am happy Brendan has shown trust in me. I had no questions about signing a new deal and I am really glad to have done so.

"I am comfortable here. I have played some games for the first team and I hope to continue doing that, but I need to work hard every day for that to happen.

"This is one of the best days of my life."

Suso joined Liverpool from Cadiz in 2010, but wasn't handed his first-team debut until this season with Kenny Dalglish unprepared to blood the youngster during his 18 months in charge.

Instead, the Scot opted to buy the likes of Charlie Adam and Jordan Henderson to fill the births in the centre of midfield, but with the former having been sold to Stoke City, and the latter out of favour at Anfield, Rodgers has made a valuable addition to the first-team squad at minimal cost.

The 18 year old has filled in ably for Lucas Levia in a deep lying midfield role, while allowing Steven Gerrard more attacking responsibility and Rodgers says his commitment to the cause has been impressive.

"We are all delighted Suso has committed his long-term future to Liverpool Football Club," Rodgers said.

"At 18, he has demonstrated outstanding technical qualities but also shown very good temperament to play for such a prestigious club.

"His commitment is very good news for all our young Academy players and the excellent work taken place by the Academy coaches and staff."
