Pacheco, Kelly earn long-term deals

Liverpool youngsters Daniel Pacheco and Martin Kelly were given new long-term contracts with the Premier League club today.

Spanish forward Pacheco, 19, signed a two-year contract extension which keeps him at Anfield until June 2014, while England U-21 defender Kelly, 20, agreed a three-year extension which will also see him remain on Merseyside until 2014.

Pacheco has featured just once as a substitute for Roy Hodgson's team so far this season, but Kelly has been more heavily involved, starting two league games and eight UEFA Europa League ties.

"Liverpool have today confirmed youngsters Dani Pacheco and Martin Kelly have signed new contracts at Anfield," the club's website confirmed.
