Fabinho has signed a new long-term contract with Liverpool. 

The length of the contract has not been official disclosed, but it's believed the Brazilian's new deal will keep him at Anfield until the summer of 2026.

The 27-year old joined Liverpool from Monaco three summers ago, and has proven to be a vital cog in Jurgen Klopp's machine.

Fabinho has made 122 appearances for the Reds, and helped them win the UEFA Champions League and Premier League in his first two seasons on Merseyside.

The ex-Real Madrid man showed his versatility last season with a centre-back injury crisis seeing him drop back into defence for a sizeable chunk of the campaign.

"I'm delighted to have signed a new contract with the club," Fabinho told "Since the beginning of the conversation, I was really positive about it because it's what I wanted – staying in this club, keep playing for Liverpool. Now this is official and I'm really happy.

"These last three seasons I've been really happy here. I learned a lot with the manager, with all the staff, with the boys as well.

"We achieved things together and for me I think it's the best place to be, the best place to keep growing, to keep learning from the staff, from the boys. Hopefully we will keep achieving good things."

Fabinho is currently with the Liverpool squad in Evian, where they are preparing for the new season.

Along with fellow Brazil internationals Alisson and Roberto Firmino, he'd only just linked up with the rest of his teammates following their involvement in the Copa America final.

Fabinho is the latest Liverpool stalwart to sign a new deal, with Trent Alexander-Arnold putting pen to paper on improved terms just last week.

"The manager and the staff are pushing us for this because they know our capacity, they know our quality," Fabinho said.

"Personally, as I say, I want to be the best for the team, I want to be an important piece in this team – not just as a player but as a leader as well. Keep learning from the boys and the staff and be the best I can.

"We know with these players we can go really far in all the competitions. In the last year we didn't win any trophies, so I think everyone is hungry to win more trophies, win more things, to keep our fans happy. Hopefully we will do this this season."
