Andy Reid on Harvey Elliott

Former Spurs star Andy Reid has been singing the praises of Harvey Elliott.

Speaking on Radio 5 Live the retired pro said how he expects the teenager to break into the liverpool first team sooner rather than later:

“I saw [sic] him playing in the 23s game for Liverpool last year and he was different class.

“He scored one there a few weeks ago when he cut inside and put one in the top corner.

“This [loan spell] will do him the world of good, getting games in the Championship.

“I know they’re very excited for him at Liverpool. For me it won’t be too long before we see him banging in goals for Liverpool.”

What RTK has to say

Andy Reid isn’t the only one excited about Harvey Elliott.

He is extremely talented and he will surely have a glistening career with Liverpool.

This season has seen him show us that he can hold his own in the men’s game.

We will likely look back at this spell as one of the most vital periods of his career.
