Elliot was delighted at the move and posted on his Instagram, writing: ‘I am so happy to be able to announce that I have signed for Liverpool.
‘To have joined the club that I supported as a boy is a dream come true for me and all of my family and it’s an incredible feeling to now officially be able to call myself a Red!

‘I can’t wait to get started and it will be a truly special feeling to pull the famous red jersey on.
‘I’ll work as hard as I possibly can for the club and I feel Anfield is the perfect place for me to develop and progress as a player.’
Elliott turned down the chance to stay with Fulham and play in the Championship next campaign.
He was also attracting interest from the likes of Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain and RB Leipzig but chose to make the switch to Liverpool instead.
