Liverpool FC Announce Signing of Record-Breaking Youngster Harvey Elliott

Share

Record setter Harvey Elliot has officially completed the switch from Fulham to Liverpool FC. The 16-year-old winger/midfielder became the youngest to feature in a Premier League match last May when he played for the Craven Cottagers against Wolverhampton Wanderers last May.

He was aged just 16 years and 30 days at the time, and he makes the move up to a giant club after just three senior team appearances with the now relegated side.

Liverpool supposedly beat out the likes of Paris Saint Germain, Real Madrid, Barcelona, Borussia Dortmund and RB Leipzig in the race to acquire Elliott. Betting on the transfer market can be exciting, just like wagering with sbobet, as the multitude of potential outcomes makes the final result tremendously exciting! Elliott was also scouted Chelsea by Manchester City, but in the end he signed with Anfield, and his transfer move was just like a spin on the roulette wheel- you just didn’t know where the final landing position would be.

Hey, Manchester United, Juventus and Bayern Munich- where you guys on this one? Harvey Elliott now becomes Liverpool’s second signing this summer behind Dutch defender Sepp van dan Berg (also a teenager) from PEC Zwolle.

According to the club’s official release:

“The England youth international will now be part of the Liverpool squad for Sunday’s friendly against Napoli in Edinburgh and the subsequent training camp in Evian.”

“I am so happy to be able to announce that I have signed for Liverpool,” Elliott wrote in a posting on his officially verified Instagram account.

“To have joined the club that I supported as a boy is a dream come true for me and all of my family and it’s an incredible feeling to now officially be able to call myself a Red!”

“I can’t wait to get started and it will be a truly special feeling to pull the famous red jersey on. I’ll work as hard as I possibly can for the club and I feel Anfield is the perfect place for me to develop and progress as a player.”
