The 19-year-old had already signed a new deal last summer, but has been rewarded by the club with a new one as a reflection of his growing contribution to the team.

The new contract is understood to be for five years, which would secure his future at Anfield until the summer of 2027. Elliott started three of Liverpool's first four matches last season, but was soon on the sidelines due to a fracture-dislocation of his ankle at Leeds. The player has made two substitute appearances this season, but with a number of injuries in midfield hampering the squad, he could find himself in the starting line-up for the match against Crystal Palace. "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 liverpoolfc.com.

"It's been a big rollercoaster for me and my family and even for the club. 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. 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."
