New deal for Elliott

Harvey Elliott has signed a new long-term contract with Liverpool Football Club.

The 18-year-old midfielder spent last season gaining invaluable first-team football on loan at Blackburn Rovers.

Elliott made 41 appearances for the Championship club over the season, netting seven goals and providing 11 assists, and was nominated for the EFL’s Young Player of the Season award.

He is now back at Liverpool and preparing for the new season, hopefully for the Reds.

“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,” he said.

“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.”
