Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk signs contract extension until 2025


Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk has extended his contract with the club until the summer of 2025.
Van Dijk made his comeback to first-team action in pre-season after nine months out with a serious knee injury sustained in October’s Mersey-side derby.

The 30-year-old will be part of the new campaign for the Reds which begins on Saturday at Norwich City with a full pre-season and three friendly run-outs under his belt.

“All the hard work we’ve put in so far continues and I am looking forward to what the future brings together with Liverpool. I’m delighted, very happy and proud,” Van Dijk said.

“Since day one when I joined the club, I felt so much appreciation from the fans and from my teammates and the staff, that I could be a very important member of this football club,” said van Dijk, who has also won the Champions League, UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup with Liverpool.

The centre-back has made 130 appearances in all competitions, scoring 13 goals, for the Reds since his arrival.
