Harvey Elliott

Reigning European champions Liverpool have completed their second signing of this summer’s transfer window with the confirmation of the Harvey Elliott deal from Fulham.

The young Fulham midfielder has signed a long-term contract at Liverpool.

His transfer was confirmed by the official Twitter handle of Liverpool on Sunday morning.

Several clubs were interested in signing Harvey Elliott from Fulham and it was the Reds who won the race to sign the talented player.

Harvey Elliott came through the ranks at English Championship club Fulham before making his debut at the age of 15 years and 174 days.

He is the youngest appearance maker in the history of the Cottagers.

The young English midfielder also holds the record for the youngest player to ever feature in a Premier League match at the age of 16 years and 30 days.

Harvey Elliott made two appearances for Fulham in the Premier League last season as the Cottagers suffered relegation from the division.

Fulham were relegated alongside the likes of Welsh outfit Cardiff City and basement club Huddersfield Town.

They will campaign in the English Championship for the new season and the target is to bounce back to the top flight after just one season.

Elliott, 16, is the second signing of this summer for Liverpool after young defender Sepp Van Der Berg signed from Dutch Eredivisie side PEC Zwolle.
