Harry Wilson has agreed his first professional contract with Liverpool.

The 17-year-old Wales international announced his deal on Twitter.

"Delighted to have signed my first professional contract with Liverpool Football Club," he said.

Wilson, a winger, became Wales' youngest international when he made his debut aged 16 years and 207 days against Belgium on 15 October 2013 - beating Gareth Bale's previous record by 108 days.

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers was taken aback when Wilson was capped by Wales.

"I was surprised. Obviously Wales had a lot of injuries," he said at the time.

"To have him here at the club is brilliant," Rodgers added. "He knows he will have a great opportunity here if he continues to develop at Liverpool.

"It's important that we just stay calm and let him develop at his own rate."

Bangor-born midfielder Jordan Williams has has also signed a professional contract with Liverpool.
