Official: Liverpool talent signs new contract until 2027

The Reds have tied down another one of their talents to a long term deal


Liverpool have confirmed that talented forward Harvey Elliot has signed a new deal with the club, keeping him at Anfield until 2027.

The English talent joined his boyhood club from Fulham in 2020, being loaned to Blackburn Rovers for the 20-21 season before joining the Reds senior side in the summer of 2021.

And while he started brightly, a horrific injury against Leeds United resulted in a long period on the sidelines, and he is yet to truly return to his best. However, Elliot remains an exceptional talent, and Liverpool have moved to tie him down for the future.

Elliot came on as a second-half substitute on the opening day of the season, but could not contribute as his side slipped to a 2-2 draw against newly promoted Fulham.

However, he spoke of his happiness to be handed a new deal, and how he wants to remain at the club for a long time to come.

“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”, Elliot told Liverpool.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”, he added.

“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.”

Jurgen Klopp was equally happy to see his talent sign a new deal, telling Liverpool’s in-house media that “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. What’s not to like?

“Harvey got a big knock last season but, like all of the experiences he has had so far, he used it to grow as a person and a player”, he continued.

“It was always obvious that he was a good footballer but taking the next steps was always going to be about using information and experiences to grow and this is exactly what Harvey is doing.

“Now it is all about carrying on enjoying his football as much as we enjoy watching him develop. It is an exciting time for him and for us.”
