Liverpool have confirmed they have received communication from the Professional Football Compensation Committee regarding the registration of Harvey Elliott.
The Reds were ordered to pay Fulham a record compensation fee for a 16-year-old, whom they signed in 2019.

In a statement, the Reds said;
“Liverpool Football Club respects the outcome of the PFCC’s fair and thorough process in this matter.
“We would like to thank the panel for their time and diligence in reaching a decision.
“We now look forward to welcoming Harvey back from his loan spell with Blackburn Rovers in the summer and helping him continue to build towards a long and successful career at Anfield.”
Liverpool are now set to pay an initial £1.5m, and a further payment of £200,000 will be due when he signs his second professional deal.
This award is a record amount for a 16-year-old player, and Fulham have indicated 'they are very pleased with the decision'.
