“Gonna be a star” – LFC fans react as Elliott makes shock deadline day move

Liverpool youngster Harvey Elliott has signed for Championship side Blackburn Rovers on a season-long loan deal.

The winger was facing the prospect of limited chances at Anfield, with Xherdan Shaqiri sticking around this summer.

The 17-year-old leaves Merseyside for neighbouring Lancashire, but remains part of Jurgen Klopp’s long-term plans.

At Ewood Park, Elliott will carve out more first team opportunities for himself and develop into an even better player.

Liverpool fans on social media reacted to the news of the deal, and not everyone saw the positives in the move.

It’s fair to say most did see the bright side, with one supporter on Twitter saying the teenager is “gonna be a star.”
