The 20-year-old - who is a centre-back by trade - has impressed at right-back during Nathaniel Clyne's extended spell on the sidelines.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has insisted that he will be given "all the money" from the Philippe Coutinho sale to spend on new players, seemingly denying suggestions that existing deals for Naby Keita and Virgil van Dijk have already seen the huge windfall spent. The German club maintain the stance of not letting their prized asset leave in January but Liverpool are still preparing for talks to bring the player, who is ready to move to Anfield now.
"He's got great attributes and that's something I can look at and see what he does from day to day".
Many have spoken about the presence that Virgil van Dijk has about him, praising the manner in which he carries himself.More news: ICC U-19 World Cup commences on Saturday
Gomez has also praised the manner in which Klopp took care of him during his recovery from a long-term knee injury in 2015.
Joel Matip was chosen as van Dijk's partner last Friday and I think they have the potential to form a solid partnership so Matip should keep his place ahead of Dejan Lovren and Ragnar Klavan. I think after all that happened it wasn't easy to do anything good.
However, it's not all been plain sailing for the former Charlton Athletic starlet. "It's something I'll always be grateful for".
"I need to be coming off the pitch every game with my voice gone, and that's something I can bring". "I can't give enough thanks to the manager here, the club and it's been fantastic for me".
