Elliott became eligible to sign a professional contract on 4 April after turning 17, and the Reds confirmed on their club’s official website that he has since agreed his first senior contract.

“I think from the first day I came in, it’s been an incredible journey so far,” the 17-year-old said.

“I think to end it now 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 excited to give everything to the club and the fans. .

Elliott – a lifelong Liverpool supporter – became the club’s youngest ever debutant when he started the Reds’ Carabao Cup tie against MK Dons in September.

He made his home debut against Arsenal in the same competition, as Liverpool won on penalties after a thrilling 5–5 draw.

“I think it was an emotional thing for me when I stepped on the pitch at Anfield playing Arsenal,” Elliott added. “Obviously watching the players and playing with them, honestly, it’s a dream come true. True

“Being in and around the fans, hearing them sing you’ll never walk alone when you step on the pitch, it brought tears to my eyes.

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

The youngster has made two cameos in the Premier League this season, most recently in the Reds’ 4-0 victory over Crystal Palace.
