Fulham demand compensation for Elliott

Liverpool signed 16-year-old Harvey Elliot from Fulham this summer, for a fee that remains officially undisclosed. However, it seems the Cottagers now aren’t happy with the deal, and they’re demanding £7 million in further compensation, according to Paul Joyce, a well-respected journalist of The Times.

Elliott became the youngest player ever to feature in a Carabao Cup (League Cup) game against Millwall last season when he made his first-team debut for Fulham last year, only 15 years and 174 days old. On Wednesday evening, he made his debut for Liverpool in the same competition as the Champions League holders beat MK Dons away by 2-0.

Though neither of the goals was scored by him, the winger’s display was impressive, making his immense talent rather obvious as he repeatedly bamboozled his opponents and posed a serious threat throughout.

Meanwhile, Joyce believes that Liverpool are unlikely to agree to Fulham’s demands, which means the matter will probably be resolved by the Professional Football Compensation Committee.
