Liverpool have today confirmed youngsters Dani Pacheco and Martin Kelly have signed new contracts at Anfield.
Pacheco has signed a two-year extension taking his contract to 30 June 2014, while Kelly has signed a three-year extension, also taking his contract to 30 June 2014.
Liverpool snapped up Spanish prodigy Pacheco from Barcelona in the summer of 2007.
He made his first-team debut as a substitute against Fiorentina in December 2009 and has since added 12 more appearances to his tally.
The 19-year-old was top scorer at this summer’s European U19 Championships, helping Spain to reach the final.
England U21 defender Martin Kelly came through the Academy before helping the reserves to win the league in 2007-08.
His senior debut then came as a substitute in a Champions League clash with PSV in December 2008.
The 20-year-old has 15 appearances to his name. (Liverpool Official Website)
Fantastic news for every Liverpool fan.
Martin Kelly proved against Chelsea that he has the talent to play against the world’s best, and an England call up will surely be on the cards in the not too distant future.
As for Pacheco, what a relief!
We all know what an amazing prospect he is, and the fact that he has committed to fulfilling that future at Anfield under Roy Hodgson is great news for the club.
