Defender Adam Lewis has officially put pen to paper on a new and improved contract at Liverpool.
The 20-year-old, who made his debut for the first-team back in February against Shrewsbury Town in the FA Cup, has committed his long-term future to the Reds and may have hopes of pushing Andy Robertson at left-back next season.

The youngster suffered a knee injury with the U23s back in September, and undertook some gruelling rehabilitation to get back to full fitness.
Lewis, a regular trainer with the first-team at Melwood, is delighted with his new deal and took to Instagram shortly after the official announcement from the club.
He said: “Proud to announce that I have signed a new long term deal at this special club @liverpoolfc hard work continues.”
Amongst the hundreds of congratulators was one Steven Gerrard, who worked closely with the starlet during his time as the club’s U18s manager.
Speaking in 2017, Gerrard said of the then 17-year-old: “I want to keep him for as long as I can, but for me, he’s such a threat on the left side.
“Going forward, I haven’t seen anyone as good as him at that age, in terms of quality and what he can deliver in the final third.”
Also in the comments were fellow youngsters Neco Williams and Harvey Elliott, who have both had a taste of the first-team football Lewis will be craving.
