On the day Liverpool announced another new contract, with Harvey Elliott the latest to commit his long-term future to the club, the Reds ranked top in an interesting survey in America!
Five more years of Harvey!
Another Liverpool player put pen to paper on a contract extension today, and it wasn’t one many were expecting so soon.
Elliott only signed his last deal 13 months ago – that itself a year after agreeing his first professional terms, but now the Reds have rewarded his progress yet again.
The England under-21 international swapped No. 67 shirt for No. 19 in pre-season, and his new deal looks to be another indication of the prominent role he looks set to play in Jurgen Klopp‘s team in 2022/23.
Next on Liverpool’s contract agenda will probably be an extension for Naby Keita, who has now entered the final year of his existing deal.
