Teenage Liverpool centre-back Lloyd Jones has signed a new contract at the club.
The 19-year-old, who moved to Anfield from Plymouth Argyle as a 15-year-old, has put pen to paper on a new two-year deal.
Jones skippered Liverpool’s under-21 side for the latter part of the 2013-14 campaign though Cameron Brannagan has generally had the armband this season.
He has yet to make his first-team debut for the Reds but was an unused substitute in the 3-1 win at Fulham in May 2013, shortly after which he signed his first professional deal with the club.
Jones spent six weeks on loan at League Two side Cheltenham Town in the New Year before returning to Liverpool’s U21s.
The defender was then farmed out to Accrington Stanley in March for the remainder of the season, a spell during which he scored his first-ever senior goal with a 30-yard screamer beyond Liverpool team-mate Danny Ward, who was on loan at Morecambe.
He was capped for Wales at U17 and U19 level before switching allegiance to England, for whom he has represented at U19 and U20 level. http://www.liverpoolecho.co.uk/sport/liverpool-fc-youngster-signs-new-9295774
