Teenager Harvey Elliott has signed his first professional contract with Liverpool.
The Fulham academy graduate made history at the end of last season when he came off the bench in a match against Wolves for the West London side, and, in the process, became the youngest man ever to play in the Premier League.
Two months later he signed for Liverpool for an undisclosed fee, and has since gone on to make eight senior appearances for Jurgen Klopp’s side, mainly in domestic cup competitions, although he has also been given two outings during the club’s Premier League winning campaign.
He was eligible to signa professional contract since turning 17 in April, and now he has put pen to paper, although the length of the deal has not been disclosed.
Elliott can play either on the wing or as a forward, and the news that he had signed gave Klopp another reason to smile, with the German telling the club’s website” Harvey is such an exciting prospect. We all know his qualities – we have seen them this season in the first team and U23s.”

He loves all sports but football is his abiding passion, and he still has dreams every now and then about scoring the winning goal in a Wembley Cup Final, even though his playing days are long gone. He follows most major leagues, across Europe at least, and has a favoured team in each. When he’s not watching, listening, reading or downloading podcasts about football, he spend his time worrying about his beloved Arsenal.
