Egypt international has signed a new long-term deal with Premier League side , the club announced on Monday morning.

The 26-year-old joined the Reds from Serie A side AS Roma last year for £34m. The Egypt international, who was named Liverpool Player of the Year, enjoyed an impressive debut season with the Premier League side as he scored a total of 44 goals in 52 appearances across all competitions with the club.

He scored 32 goals in the league to become the record goalscorer in a 38-game Premier League campaign, winning the Golden Boot for the 2017/18 season.

His incredible form saw him collect a number of prizes including the PFA Players’ Player of the Year and the Football Writers’ Association’s Footballer of the Year and became the first ever player to win three Premier League Player of the Month awards in a season.

He also helped Liverpool finish fourth in the Premier League standings and reach the Champions League final.

Salah was also integral in Egypt’s road to the 2018 World Cup as he helped the Pharaohs reach the football’s showpiece event for the first time in 28 years, which earned him the African Footballer of the Year and the BBC’s African Player of the Year awards.

Following his stellar season with Liverpool and the Egyptian national team, the former Basel winger was linked with a move to Spanish giants Real Madrid. The former Chelsea player, however, has pledged his long-term future to Liverpool, with several reports claiming there’s no release clause in his contract, which tie him to the club until 2023.
