A tribunal had ordered Liverpool to pay Fulham Football Club a guaranteed fee of £1.7 million for the signing of Harvey Elliott and then a further amount of £2.3 million based on performances. A total of £4 million will be paid by Liverpool to Fulham Football Club and on top of that, the latter have a 20% selling-on clause if Liverpool decide to sell him in the future. This would mean that Liverpool will have to pay 20% of the amount they make on selling Harvey Elliott in the future.
The 17 year old Harvey Elliott is tearing up the Championship with Blackburn Rovers
Right now Liverpool have loaned Harvey Elliott to Championship club Harvey Elliott where he has been consistently showing his talent. The club players and staff have been so impressed by the performances of the 17 year old who has shown himself to be far more mature than his age. His performances will please no one more than Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, who has had nothing but praise for the youngster. The youngster was struggling to break into the Liverpool first team through no fault of his as his position is occupied by Mohamed Salah.
Not many can really replace Mohamed Salah in his position and it was felt that Harvey Elliott had to get first team minutes somewhere else. A loan move to Blackburn Rovers has so far been a resounding success for both player and both clubs involved as he has returned excellent figures. In 23 matches he has scored 4 goals and assisted 8 times. Those kind of figures are good figures for any adult player and for a 17 year old to have achieved it is a stupendous achievement.
Fulham boss Scott Parker felt that Liverpool pulled off a heist with the amount of money that they had been asked to pay. For a player who he felt that Fulham had developed personally as they felt that he was going to the very top, this felt like a crime to him.
