Liverpool have secured the future of home-grown youngster Tyler Morton, who is spending this season on loan at Blackburn in the Championship, with a new long-term contract.

Morton turned 20 in October and played nine times for Liverpool last season after being presented with a senior debut by Jurgen Klopp in the Carabao Cup in September 2021.

He joined Blackburn for the duration of the 2022/23 campaign during the summer and has played in all 26 of the Lancashire club’s league games this season – Rovers sit third in the Championship table and are seeking promotion back to the Premier League after 11 years away.

A new long-term deal at Liverpool signals the Reds’ faith in his future potential.

“I’m absolutely buzzing. The little dream is coming true, so I couldn’t be happier,” Morton himself told the club’s official website.

“I’ve known for a little while and it’s been ongoing, and I couldn’t wait to get it over the line because this is the place I want to be and this is the club I want to be at. I’m absolutely buzzing and I can’t wait for the future.

“I’ve been extremely proud of myself for how I’ve handled the loan so far. Hopefully I carry that on and take it into the next half of the season.

“I feel like I’m progressing every day and learning new things on and off the pitch. It’s a lovely environment to learn and turn myself into a professional – and I think I’m doing that quite well. Hopefully it sets me up for what’s to come in the future.”
