‘A Dream Come True’
Elliott, the club’s second-youngest debutant, joined Liverpool from Fulham last summer and went on to appear eight times across the course of this season.
Along with Neco Williams and Curtis Jones, he is in a trio of players pushing to be the next to break through into the first team on a regular basis.
Speaking to the club website about his new contract, Elliott 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.”
The teenager made his debut for the Reds in last September’s Carabao Cup tie away at MK Dons. While he did not get on the scoresheet, he put in an impressive performance and should have had two on the night.
His most recent outing was in the 4-0 win against Crystal Palace, the game that effectively secured Liverpool their first league title for 30 years.
Elliott also featured heavily in the 5-5 draw against Arsenal in the Carabao Cup, which Liverpool’s youngsters went on to win 5-4 on penalties. He then joined the squad for their Club World Cup win in Qatar when they beat Brazilian side Flamengo 1-0.
