Suso set for new Liverpool deal

Liverpool's Spanish teenager Suso is set to sign a new improved contract before the weekend.

• Henderson backs Reds youth

Suso, 18, who joined the club's youth set-up from Cadiz in 2009, made his senior debut in the 5-3 Europa League win over Swiss club Young Boys on September 20.

He has made three Premier League appearances for the club, and manager Brendan Rodgers is keen to secure him long term.

The Spain Under-19 international, who can play in an attacking role, is likely to get more first-team opportunities after Fabio Borini was ruled out for up to three months with a broken bone in his foot.

Rodgers highlighted his admiration for the young spanish midfielder and stated he is a big part of future plans at Anfield.

"I've been really impressed by young Suso. He's a good boy as well. He's very keen to learn. He'll sign a new contract, which shows our commitment to him and shows that he's very happy here and has got hope, which is very important. He's a wonderful technician.

"He's very bright. He's a thinking player, which I like. He needs to ad goals to his game, but when you're a young player coming into the team, you're really just trying to settle in. He's very creative and he works very hard, so he's done very well. He's got a long way to go, but he's shown excellent progress."
