Liverpool have agreed to let Harvey Elliott join Blackburn Rovers on loan for the season after Jurgen Klopp gave the thumbs up to a temporary move for the youngster.
Elliott will join Rovers in the hope of getting some first-team minutes under his belt, something that seems unlikely at Anfield given the Reds are out of the League Cup.
The former Fulham teenager is highly-thought of by Jurgen Klopp and will hope that an impressive season in the second tier can give him the platform to kick on and improve even further next term.
Liverpool have produced and made money off some young players in recent times. Rhian Brewster joined Sheffield United this window, while Harry Wilson, Ben Woodburn, and now Elliott are all set to spend time away from the club.
Reds fans, then, have been reacting to the news on Twitter and while there’s some who believe this is the right move, some believe Elliott may well fall into the trap of being another player who never quite makes it.
Oh…im sort of saddened by this. But he’ll get okay time there at least…so thats good.

Great move for him. He’ll be back a much better player next year, but he needs to play regularly either as a starter or impact sub.

Makes total sense. Very interested to see how it affects him after the loan in next year pre season.

Will be good to see him get more games. Would have been nice to have seen him for us though

Hope Elliott breaks the trend of loan and another loan and another and another before permanently selling the player. Like wilson or Grujic.
