Liverpool youngster Brad Smith has confirmed he’s signed a new deal to stay at Anfield for the foreseeable future. The Australian international was highly thought of by previous Reds Manager, Brendan Rogers and now Jorgen Klopp has been equally impressed with the 21 years old.
Brad Smith has only featured just once in the premier League in 2013, which was in the 2-1 defeat against Chelsea where he was a late substitute. The Reds academy player is a left back blessed with lightening pace and runs down the flanks. Brad Smith went out on a youth loan in August of 2014, making 10 appearances during his stay there, and earned a call up into the Australian side.
The Telegraph reports that Liverpool have settled a contract dispute with the Australian international, enabling the youngster to continue his career on Merseyside. Smith has been without a club since the summer after failing to agree terms at Anfield last summer.
However, Liverpool retained the player’s registration as Smith has been at the club since he was 14, and they would have been entitled to compensation had the player moved away to join another side.
He is looking like a future Liverpool player with his talent, potential and fast rising profile, it won’t be long before he will break into the first team, especially if Klopp stays on at Anfield.
