Liverpool reward ‘very, very well’ Luke Chambers with new contract

Liverpool have given 18-year-old left-back Luke Chambers a new contract. The defender has impressed this summer.

Liverpool announced on Tuesday that Luke Chambers has a new contract with the club. It comes after Chambers took part in the Reds’ pre-season tour as a third-choice left-back.

The 18-year-old helped England Under-19s win the European Championship ahead of this tour and this new crown has been a truly remarkable summer. With Owen Beck on loan at Famalicao, Chambers could be left with a game or two this season.

He certainly made a big enough impression to deserve this spot.

Chambers has already made a name for himself at academy level, captaining the Under-18s on occasion. He also scored goals as a penalty taker, while operating as both left-back and centre-back.

That kind of versatility will always help a young player go far. Just like impressing senior players and Chambers managed to do that while touring Asia.

“This kid impresses me a lot,” Kostas Tsimikas told Liverpoolfc.com of Chambers. “He’s a very, very good player and always very focused in training.”

It’s the kind of glowing review that will raise eyebrows in Liverpool. Chambers hasn’t even been with the seniors for that long, but has done enough to really get Tsimikas’ attention.

Now Chambers needs to make sure he trains more often at this level. He won’t find a better selection of left-backs to learn from, after all, with Tsimikas and Andy Robertson available to guide him. Not to mention someone like James Milner who, like Chambers, manages to prove himself in several positions, including at left-back.

And so the 18-year-old is one to watch going forward. Liverpool clearly see something in him with this new contract, as does Tsimikas. Getting into the Reds’ setup isn’t exactly easy, but Chambers is off to a good start.
