Mohamed Salah signs new five-year deal with Liverpool

Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah has signed a new five-year contract with the club.

The 26-year-old Egypt international joined the Reds for £34m from Roma last summer and has scored 44 goals in 52 appearances for the club. His new deal, which runs until 2023, does not contain a release clause.

Salah was the top scorer in the Premier League last season as he netted 32 top-flight goals – the most by a player in a 38-game season – to win the Golden Boot.

Salah had to come off after half an hour of the final against the Spanish side after suffering a shoulder injury following a challenge from centre-back Sergio Ramos.

The problem put his participation at the 2018 World Cup in doubt and he missed Egypt’s opening game – a 1-0 defeat by Uruguay – before starting against Russia and Saudi Arabia.

Salah scored in both of those games but could not stop his country from losing and going out in the group stages.
