Mohamed Salah signs new long-term Liverpool contract

Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah has signed a new long-term contract with the club, it has been announced.

There had been much speculation over the Egyptian’s future at the Reds, with reports in April that the forward had rejected a previous contract offer.

However, he has now put pen to paper on a deal that will keep him at Anfield for the foreseeable future. Salah has signed a three-year extension to his existing contract to June 2025.

It ends a period of uncertainty for Liverpool fans and manager Jurgen Klopp. The highly influential Sadio Mane has departed the club this summer, and there were concerns over Salah’s long-term future.
