Divock Origi has pledged his long-term future to Liverpool by signing a new long-term contract.


The Belgium international's deal was due to expire at the end of the 2019-20 season, but the Merseyside club decided to hand him a new deal following his heroics in Liverpool's triumphant Champions League campaign.


The 24-year-old told the club's official website: "I'm very happy to be able to sign this contract and it gives you a boost at the beginning of the season, as well as the end of the season last year. So I'm very happy.


"I always felt comfortable here. I made steps during my career, I say that I became a man here at this club, I signed when I was 19.


"When we had to make the decision I just wanted to speak with the club first and my entourage, but the feeling was always that I wanted to stay and extend my contract."


Origi continued: "It's an amazing club, we have a good group, the staff are amazing. Even coming into Melwood, the people that work here and everything, you feel there is something special going on here.


"We're still young so there's a lot of potential in the group. I'm just having fun in training and on the pitch. Those are all important factors as a player.


"[I want] to keep progressing and trying to maximise the potential and talent I have each and every day. At the end of my career I want to sit back and be proud that I used all of my gifts and talents.


"I think the next years are going to be very special – prime years, maybe – and I'm going to try to use them to the fullest."
