Liverpool have announced that Harvey Elliott has signed a new long-term deal at the club until the summer of 2027.
The 19-year-old midfielder has re-established himself as a key member of Jurgen Klopp’s first-team squad after recovering from his serious ankle injury last term.
Elliott was restricted to just 11 senior games in all competitions last season, however, he did score his first goal for the team in the FA Cup match against Cardiff City.
The ex-Fulham starlet now has one goal and two assists to boast from 22 appearances in a Liverpool kit and came off the bench against his ex-club in Saturday’s 2-2 draw.
News of an imminent deal extension for Elliott came out on Thursday morning, and the Merseyside Reds have now confirmed that the teenager has penned fresh terms.
“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, 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.”
Klopp added: “There is so much to like about this. For us, as a club, we get to continue our journey with a special young player who has already made a big impact on Liverpool FC. For Harvey, he gets to carry on developing, improving and hopefully fulfilling his incredible talent at the club he has always supported.”
