Liverpool have confirmed their young winger Harry Wilson has signed a new deal with the Reds on 28 July, Thursday. The 19-year-old came up through the ranks of the club's youth system, but is yet to make an appearance for the first team.

His fine display for Wales Under-17 saw him catch the attention of Wales manager Chris Coleman. The latter included the teenager in his squad and Wilson made his Wales senior team debut at the age of 16 in October 2013.

Wilson is the youngest player to represent his national side, beating the previous record of Gareth Bale by 108 days. He spent the first half of last season on loan at Crewe Alexandra, where he made seven appearances.

A statement on Liverpool's official website read: "Liverpool can confirm that Harry Wilson has signed a new contract with the club. The 19-year-old winger, a member of Michael Beale's U23 squad, put pen to paper today."

"Wilson, who joined Liverpool at the age of eight, became Wales' youngest ever player by making his senior international debut as a 16-year-old in October 2013."

The teenage winger suffered a toe injury keeping him on the sidelines for five weeks. Wilson returned to action in July when he made an appearance for the Reds' youth team in Germany. He even scored in Liverpool Under-21's latest victory over Rhyl FC. He expressed his delight to back in action.

"Before this I hadn't really had a proper injury, I've been quite lucky and hadn't really missed a lot of football. So being out for that long takes its toll and you're itching to get back," the Liverpool Echo quoted Wilson as saying.

"But you can't rush it or you'll get other injuries so you've got take your time, listen to the physios and now my time has come to be back I'm just so excited to see what the future holds. Being out for so long you're just so excited to get out again playing games."
