Harvey Elliott and Liverpool have reached an agreement over the teenage star’s first professional contract.

Harvey Elliot has agreed to a three-year deal at Anfield which is set to get into effect this summer.

The highly rated youngster joined Liverpool from Fulham last summer and has now committed himself to the club long-term.

Being only 16 years of age at the moment and 17 in April, it means Elliot can not sign a longer deal for now – which explains the three year deal as per The Times.

It is expected that when he turns 18 next year, he will put pen-to-paper on a five-year deal with the European champions.

The teenager has featured in six cup appearances for Liverpool this term.

Despite his young age, he also made his Premier League debut for the club last month against Sheffield United.

Jurgen Klopp has been impressed with Elliott and his maturity and sees him as a first-team player in the nearest future

The German has described him as an “unbelievable talent”.

Elliot is likely to be handed another opportunity in the first team in his side’s FA Cup fifth round tie against Chelsea.
