The club are delighted to confirm that midfielder Josh Payne has signed a new contract with the club until the end of the 2019-20 season.
Josh joined Reds in the summer of 2016 and has gone on to make 58 league and cup appearances for the club, scoring three goals.
Head Coach Harry Kewell said: “This is good news, not only for Josh but for the club going forward.
“Since I came to the club Josh has been an outstanding professional. He’s one of the senior players in the group and sets the right example day in, day out.
“He has become an important member of the squad and I hope he will play a big part in what we are trying to achieve going forward.”
Josh said: “I’m delighted to sign this new contract.
“I feel we are really making progress under Harry Kewell. I love the way he wants us to play because it brings out the best in me as a player. We’re on a good run at the moment but no one is getting carried away. It’s one game at a time, but hopefully we can finish the season strongly and then really push on next season and beyond.”
