Divock Origi, the man whose goal secured Liverpool their sixth European Cup, has committed his future to the club by signing a new long-term contract.
Liverpool fans could be forgiven for feeling envious of their Premier League rivals in this summer's transfer window.
Talks over an improved contract began last season, progressed during the summer and accelerated this week.
The England Under-18 worldwide made his Premier League debut in Fulham's 1-0 loss to Wolverhampton Wanderers in May.
When asked whether he was planning to make any major signings in the coming weeks, Klopp replied: "We have brought them already and you don't realise it. Rhian Brewster, (Alex) Oxlade-Chamberlain didn't play last year, all the young boys didn't play for us last year, they are all new players for us".
"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 past year", Origi told Liverpool's website.Читайте также: U.S. wants coalition to safeguard waters, deter Iranian threats
His decision was never going to be financially driven, with the player valuing minutes over money.

The 2018-19 Premier League runners-up featured two entirely different starting XI in both halves.
Origi reported back to Melwood for preseason training on Monday and signalled his desire to play a further part in helping Liverpool win silverware.
Origi scored crucial goals for the Liverpool last season - including a late victor in the Merseyside derby against Everton, a double in the Champions League semi-final comeback against Barcelona and one in the final versus Tottenham Hotspur. It is no easy task for a player to see Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino ahead of them but Origi understands his place within the squad and he will again have a key role to play in the new campaign.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
