Teenage winger Elliott signs for Liverpool

Liverpool have signed youngster Harvey Elliott from Fulham.

The Reds have beaten off interest from the likes of Barcelona, Real Madrid, Paris Saint Germain and RB Leipzig to agree a deal with the 16-year-old.

Elliott is the youngest ever player to make his Premier League debut, featuring in Fulham's clash with Wolves in May aged just 16 years, 30 days.

The Reds have also signed Sepp van der Berg from PEC Zwolle this season.

Elliott will not turn professional until his 17th birthday, which is in April, and the maximum length of contract he can sign with Liverpool will be three years.

In a post on his Instagram account, Elliot said: "I am so happy to be able to announce that I have signed for Liverpool".

After finalising the move, Elliott took to Instagram to express his delight at joining his boyhood club and the winger feels Liverpool is the flawless place for him to develop as a player.

He is included in Liverpool's squad for today's friendly against Napoli in Edinburgh and will take part in the Reds' training camp in Evian, France.

The Surrey-born midfielder became the Premier League's youngest ever player when he made a second half appearance against Wolverhampton Wanderers in May.

His final appearance for Fulham came a week later against Newcastle as Scott Parker's side suffered relegation to the Championship.
