Up and coming Liverpool forward Harvey Elliott is set to sign his first professional contract with the club next month.
According to an update from James Pearce, the youngster has been rewarded for his impressive work with the Reds so far and will pen a three-year deal at the start of July.
Should Harvey Elliott be given more time in the first team?
Liverpool signed Elliott last summer from Fulham and he quickly made a name for himself amongst the team. The teenager also made Premier League history after becoming the youngest ever player to feature in a top flight match, aged 16 years and 30 days (via BBC Sport).
Elliott has tallied two goals and four assists in 12 youth appearances this season and also featured in three FA Cup games, one being against bitter rivals Everton (via Transfermarkt).
Reds fans are delighted to see the teen sign his first professional deal with the club and have taken to Twitter to express their excitement. One Kopite has commented Elliott is ‘better than a new signing’, whilst another thinks there’s ‘exciting times’ ahead, understandably so given his achievements so far at a young age.
The most exciting prospect currently without doubt.

Looks like real prospect – shows flashes of brilliance and there’s an expectation for something special when he’s on the ball. Should see some game time this season after the title is done and dusted. Exciting times.
