Liverpool teenager Suso is on the verge of signing a new, improved contract at Anfield.

Suso: Signs a new deal

The 18-year-old, who has broken into the first team this season, is set to complete the deal before the weekend.

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers said: "He will sign a new contract later which shows our commitment to him and shows he is very happy here and feels he has hope, which is important."

The Spain Under-19 international made his first-team debut in September's Europa League victory over Young Boys and made his first Premier League start nine days later.

With surgery on a fractured foot ruling out forward Fabio Borini for up to three months Suso is expected to get more first-team opportunities.

"I have been really impressed. He is a good boy and very keen to learn," Rodgers added.

"He is a wonderful technician, he's very bright and a thinking player - which I like.

"He needs to add goals to his game but obviously when you are a young player coming into the team you are really just trying to settle in.

"But for him he is very creative and he works very hard.

"He's done very well; there is a long way to go but he's shown excellent promise."
