“I’m delighted to sign the new deal,” Wilson told Liverpool’s official website.

“When it got offered to me, I was desperate to get everything sorted so I could sign it fairly early on in pre-season because I want to focus on playing football.

“So, now this is sorted, I feel I can do that and push on and try and impress.”

Celtic, have reportedly made enquiries about the Wales international ahead of the new campaign but the 21-year-old is hoping to find a way to Jurgen Klopp starting II.

“I think my short-term focus is to keep trying to impress the manager day in, day out in training and, the minutes I get in pre-season, try and impress,” said Wilson,

 “[I want to] keep trying to score goals, [get] assists, help the team out and then I’m not looking too far beyond that.

“I feel if I do well enough here, everything else will take care of itself.”
