HARVEY ELLIOTT has signed his first professional Liverpool contract – and says it’s a “dream come true”.

The 17-year-old’s deal was confirmed today on the club’s official website.

He said: “I think since the first day I’ve walked in, it’s been an indescribable journey so far.

“I think now to top it off with my first professional contract is a dream come true for me and my family.

“I’m excited to see what the future holds and I’m just excited to give everything to the club and the fans.”

Elliott – who turned 17 on April 4 – joined the Premier League champions from Fulham last summer and has made eight first-team appearances so far.

The playmaker made his debut in the EFL Cup tie at MK Dons back in September, becoming the second youngest debutant in the club’s history.

Elliott, an England Under-17s star, added: “I think when I stepped out on the Anfield pitch when I played Arsenal, I think it was an emotional thing for me.

“To obviously be watching the players and to be playing them with them, honestly it’s a dream come true.

“To be in and around the fans as well, to hear them singing You’ll Never Walk Alone when you’re stepping out on the pitch, it did bring a tear to my eye.

“I just can’t wait to give everything back to them and just to show them what I can do.”

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp added: “Brilliant news, really happy.

“Harvey is such an exciting prospect. We all know his qualities, we have seen them this season in the first team and U23s.

“I love his attitude, love his enthusiasm, love his bravery, love the fact he has the right amount of football confidence and cheekiness”
