The Reds did not reveal the length of the deal when announcing it on Tuesday, but it is reported to take Stewart through to the summer of 2020, with the option of a further year. The 22-year-old has been with Liverpool since leaving Tottenham in 2014, although he only made his first-team debut for the Merseyside outfit in January.
That came with a start in the FA Cup, and three other run-outs in that competition – each time as part of the first XI – have followed, as well as one appearance as a substitute in the Barclays Premier League. Stewart, currently nursing an ankle injury, told liverpoolfc.com: “It gives me more confidence, it shows (the club) believe in me and believe that I could go on to become a good player for them. “It has just given me confidence in myself and the security (gives me) time to prove myself and get better with good coaches and good players.” Prior to making his Liverpool bow, London-born Stewart had spent time on loan with Cheltenham, Burton and, earlier this season, Swindon. He never made a first-team appearance for Tottenham, but did play his maiden senior game while on loan from Spurs at Crewe.
