Liverpool youngster Harvey Elliott has agreed a new long-term contract with the English Premier League club.

The new deal will keep the 19-year-old forward at the club until the summer of 2027.

Elliott, who joined Liverpool from Fulham in July 2019 and only signed a new deal with the English club a year ago, has re-established himself as a regular member of Jurgen Klopp’s first-team squad after recovering from his serious ankle injury last season.

Elliott was restricted to just 11 senior appearances in all competitions last term, but he did score his first goal for the club in the FA Cup against Cardiff City.

Speaking to the club website, Elliott said:

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.

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. 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. 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.

Elliott becomes the latest in a long line of Liverpool players to extend their deals this summer after Mohamed Salah, James Milner, Joe Gomez, Diogo Jota and Stefan Bajcetic.
