The 17-year-old has wowed the Anfield faithful since he arrived from Fulham last summer, picking up a Premier League winners’ medal for his troubles and signing his first professional contract back in July.
Playing for the club that he’s supported since he was a young boy, Elliott has made nine Premier League appearances so far, with manager Jurgen Klopp singing his praises after describing him as a “special player”. This is considerably more first-team showings than other fringe players like Harry Wilson, who has been at the club his entire career.
Elliott has now put pen to paper with the Championship side until the conclusion of the 2020/21 campaign, which got done just a few hours before Friday’s 5pm domestic deadline passed.
Will Harvey Elliott succeed with Blackburn Rovers?
Unsurprisingly, this attracted a positive reaction for a player who is yet to experience first-team football on a regular basis, which he will now get the opportunity to take advantage of.

Good for him, he’s still a kid and not ready for us at all, getting game time to help him develop will be class

That’s a brilliant move for him. Highest hopes I’ve ever had for a young player cementing their place in our starting 11. https://t.co/MnSr06JXVt
