Liverpool have confirmed that full-back Kostas Tsimikas has signed a new long-term contract at the club.

The 27-year-old joined Liverpool from Olympiacos in 2020, and has since played a huge role in some of the Reds' successes - notably scoring the winning penalty in the FA Cup final in 2022.

90min recently revealed that Liverpool were working on extending Tsimikas' contract in addition to vice-captain Trent Alexander-Arnold, with his previous deal due to expire in the summer of 2025, and the club have now confirmed that an extension has been signed.

“I feel very glad to be here to extend my contract. I feel like all the sacrifices I did and other things, the work I put in, [that] everything pays off," Tsimikas told the club media channels about his new contract.

“But this keeps me fully motivated for the rest. As I’ve said in many, many interviews, this team has many, many things to achieve all together and I wanted to be from the first minute a part of it.

“More success, more work and more trophies. For me it is the most important thing, to win trophies, to be committed in every situation, to be part of all of this.

“I think this team has very big potential to win more trophies and we will go for it. Everybody, I think, is 100% there [and] focused for the next games and everybody is ready to achieve big things in the future.”

Alexander-Arnold is expected to join Tsimikas, who primarily operates as Andrew Robertson's understudy, in committing his long-term future to the club, with Liverpool hopeful that the 24-year-old will have put pen to paper before Christmas.
