Liverpool win race to sign Fulham teenager

Liverpool have beaten off competition from other Premier League clubs and sides from abroad in the race to sign Fulham teenager Harvey Elliot.

The 16-year old made history when he became the youngest player to feature in the Premier League when he appeared as an 88th minute substitute in an away defeat to Wolves in May. His meteoric progress attracted interest from the likes of Real Madrid, RB Leipzig and PSG, as well as a host of other Premier League clubs, but he has now opted to join Liverpool, after turning down the chance to sign a scholarship deal at Craven Cottage.

The Merseyside club will have to pay Fulham a large fee in compensation for Elliot, but, in return, will be signing one of the hottest young English prospects around. Liverpool will have to sign Elliot initially on a scholarship because of his tender years. League regulations prohibit them from offering  him a professional contract until he turns 17 next April.
