Liverpool have confirmed the signing of teenage winger Harvey Elliott from Fulham.

The 16-year-old made three appearances for the Cottagers last season, becoming the youngest debutant in Premier League history when he played against Wolves – aged 16 years and 30 days – in May.

The move had been expected, with Elliott attending the pre-season friendly between Liverpool and Tranmere.

A fan of Liverpool, it was this connection that saw him choose the Red ahead of interest from the likes of Arsenal, Real Madrid, PSG and Manchester City.

The club confirmed the England youth international will be part of the senior squad for Sunday's friendly against Napoli in Edinburgh and will travel to Evian for a pre-season training camp.

He cannot sign a professional contract until he turns 17 next April and a compensation fee is to be decided by a tribunal.

Elliott is the second significant teenage signing of the summer,following the capture of Sepp Van Den Berg, who arrived from PEC Zwolle for an initial €1.45million fee.
