Liverpool have confirmed that midfielder Harvey Elliott has extended his stay at the club.
The 18-year-old English footballer joined the ‘Reds’ in July 2019 from Fulham.
Ever since arriving at Liverpool, the youngster has played a total number of nine games under the tetulage of Jurgen Klopp.
He spent last season on loan with Blackburn Rovers, where he featured in 47 games in all competitions – scoring seven goals and weighed in 11 assists.
“There’s always going to be those butterflies whenever you put on the shirt, whenever you go out to train and play, whenever you’re involved in the club there’s always that feeling,” Elliott told the club’s official website on the special feeling of representing the side.
“Especially for me, being a Red, as well as my family – it’s nice to make them proud and make myself proud. But the hard work carries on.
“It’s always a nice feeling when you sign a new contract – especially for your boyhood club. It’s all done and dusted now so I’ve just got to focus on pre-season, get my work in and make sure I’m ready for the season.”
Elliott is eager to take another step forward and gain more game at Anfield.
“It’s not going to come easily; there’s a great bunch of boys here and great talent. But it’s down to me to work hard. I believe in myself that I can do it. I just want to be around the team, support everyone and be there if needed,” he added.
“Ever since I first walked through the door they [the coaching staff] have showed [faith]. They show it with every single player; they always have faith in you.
“They’re always giving you 100 per cent on the training pitch and off the training pitch, always wanting you to be the best possible person and player. I feel like there’s a lot of faith in me. But it’s just down to me to go and show it and prove them right.”
