Harvey Elliott has signed a new long-term contract with Liverpool, the club announced Thursday, August 11th. The move will keep the 19-year-old midfielder at through the 2027 season.

Elliott, who grew up as a Reds supporter, began his professional career with Fulham in 2018. He signed with Liverpool in 2019 for £1.5 million and made 3 appearances for Liverpool that season at the age of 16. In order to get more time on the pitch, Elliott was sent on to Championship side Blackburn for the 2019-‘20 campaign, scoring 7 goals in 41 appearances.

Elliott came back to Liverpool last season and was off to a promising start, but a severe ankle injury ended his season after just six matches. He returned to the pitch for the current campaign and came off the bench in a 2-2 draw at Fulham to start the EPL season.

This is exactly what Harvey is doing.”
