Jota signs a "long-term deal" to stay at Liverpool

 Liverpool has announced today that Diogo Jota has signed a "new long-term contract."

Jota signs a "long-term deal" to stay at Liverpool

The Portuguese forward joined Liverpool from English rivals Wolves in 2020. Neither the specific term of the deal nor its value were made public, but British media indicated the forward would be remaining at Anfield until at least 2027.

The 25-year-old has established himself as a key player for Liverpool, scoring 34 goals in 85 games.

He played a key role in how Liverpool almost missed out on a historic quadruple last season, losing the Champions League final to Real Madrid by a score of 1-0 and being edged out of the Premier League crown by Manchester City by a point.

Jota is out with a hamstring injury and will not play in Liverpool's first Premier League game of the new campaign on Saturday against Fulham.

I have to say, I'm really proud," Jota said on the website for Liverpool.

"Obviously, I've established myself as a key member of this team since I joined two years ago. I desired that from the beginning.

"Now that I've signed a new, long-term contract, it's clear from the club's standpoint that they believe in me as a player. Knowing I'll be here for a while is quite beneficial to me.

Let's do it now that a new season has begun.

Jota will be a member of a strengthened Liverpool attacking line thanks to Darwin Nunez and Luis Diaz's recent transfers.

Sadio Mane has transferred to Bayern Munich, but Mohamed Salah will continue to lead the assault, with Roberto Firmino as a backup.
