Liverpool youngster Harvey Elliott has penned a new five-year contract at Anfield, the Premier League club announced on Thursday.
The Reds signed the 19-year-old from Fulham in 2019 and he has gone on to make 22 appearances for the Merseyside club.
He enjoyed a productive loan spell with Blackburn Rovers in 2020/21, scoring seven and assisting 11 in 42 appearances for the Championship outfit.
Following a fruitful campaign elsewhere, Elliott returned to Anfield and played seven minutes of their Premier League opener at Norwich City before starting their next three matches.
He suffered a serious ankle injury on matchday four at Leeds United and missed a huge chunk of the season.
Elliott returned to the squad in February, scoring once in Liverpool’s 3-1 victory against Cardiff City in the FA Cup.
After coming off the bench against his former club, Fulham, on Saturday, the youngster is looking forward to some decent playing time this season.
And his fine performances and high potential has seen him rewarded with a new contract at Anfield.
The England under-21 attacker has reportedly penned a deal lasting until 2027.
“It’s always nice to know that I’m going to be here for many more years, which is always a great thing with it being my boyhood club and there is nothing in this world that makes me more happy and more excited than this,” Elliott told the club’s official website.
“It’s been a big rollercoaster for me and my family and even for the club,” he continued. “So much has happened in the years that I have been here.
“We’ve already won so much and hopefully we can win so much more, so just to know that I am going to be here for a long time again – as I said, it’s always a wonderful feeling for myself and my family [and] being Liverpool supporters there is no better place in this world to be than playing for Liverpool and to put the shirt on and go out and play for the team and the fans.
“I’m hoping there are many more memories to come with it but I’m just so excited to put pen to paper and stay here for a lot longer.”
