Liverpool confirmed that Harvey Elliott signed his first professional contract at the club.
The 17-year-old was impressive when he had the chance on Jurgen Klopp’s first team this season and he was rewarded with a deal.
The striker put the pen to paper on a senior contract, with the Reds becoming eligible to do so after turning 17 on April 4.

Elliott said Liverpoolfc.com: “I think from the first day I joined, it has been an indescribable journey so far.
“I think that now ending my first professional contract is a dream come true for me and my family. I’m excited to see what the future holds and just excited to give everything to the club and the fans. “
It is not clear how long Elliott signed, but the Daily mirror recently reported that Elliott received a three-year contract that he will sign in early July, with the option of two more years when he turns 18.
Elliott, who joined the Fulham club last summer, has played eight games for the first time so far.
“I think when I entered Anfield when I played for Arsenal, I think it was exciting for me,” he added. “Obviously, watching the players and playing with them, honestly, is a dream come true.
“Being in and around the fans too, listening to them sing You will never walk alone when you are out on the pitch, it brought a tear to my eyes. I can’t wait to return everything to them and just show them what I can do. “
