New Delhi: Liverpool have announced a contract extension for teen sensation Harvey Elliott. Also known as ‘Wonderkid’ the 19-year-old midfielder arrived from Fulham in 2019 for a fee ruled by a tribunal to be up to £4.3 million.
He has since made 22 appearances for the Reds. The midfielder’s new deal will reportedly run until 2027.
“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,” Elliott told Liverpool’s offical website.
“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,” he added.
Elliott suffered a fracture dislocation of his left ankle during a Premier League match against Leeds United in September that sidelined him for five months.
After returning to action at the end of last season, Elliott has appeared off the bench in both of Liverpool’s fixtures so far this season against Manchester City in the Community Shield and last week’s opening Premier League draw with Fulham.
Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp praised the England U-21 international by saying, “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.”
“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 added
For Harvey, he gets to carry on developing, improving, and hopefully fulfilling his incredible talent at the club he has always supported.
“We are delighted to announce that Harvey Elliott has signed a new long-term contract with the club!” Liverpool said in a statement on their official Twitter handle.
