Egyptian King Mohamed Salah has signed a new long-term contract with Premier League club Liverpool on July 2.

In his debut season at the Merseyside club, he scored 44 goals, with 32 of them coming in the Premier League to give him the record of most goals in the competition's history for a 38-game campaign.

"I think this news can be seen for what it is rewarding a person who performed and contributed greatly for the team and the club last season," manager Juergen Klopp told the club's website.

"It demonstrates two things very clearly also - his belief in Liverpool and our belief in him."

"Mo reflects where we are as a team, I think. Last season was special with many special moments - but we want more."


The 26-year-old had been linked with a move to Spain but he denied all the rumours and made it clear that he was happy at Liverpool.
