Liverpool prospect Harry Wilson has signed a new contract at the club, they Reds have confirmed on their official website

The 19-year-old appears to be highly rated by those that watch a lot of the Reds at youth level, and was even handed his first full senior international cap in 2013 when Wales faced Belgium at the age of 16 years and 207 days - becoming the youngest player to have played for Wales.

He posted his own message on twitter following the deal:

Last season he had a spell on loan at Crewe Alexandra, but made just the seven appearance during his time at Gresty Road.

Given there was much fanfare and excitement around Wilson a few years ago, things have quietened down a little - but part of that is down to Wilson only just returning from five months on the sidelines from a broken toe.

As some may have expected there are a lot of people who are quite pleased to see a bright prospect tied down to a new deal, and some feels it demonstrates an improvement on the part of the club when it comes to handling their younger players. 

It remains to be seen whether he will be sent out on loan following this deal for further first team experience, though he is currently part of Michael Beale's under-23 squad.

Here is a sample of the largely positive reaction from Liverpool fans on twitter:
