Liverpool confirmed on Tuesday that Harvey Blair has a new contract with the club. Fans took to Twitter to react.
Harvey Blair has a new long-term contract with Liverpool. The 18-year-old is one of the brightest young prospects at the club right now – and there are a fair few of them.
Blair, of course, made his senior debut this season as a surprise starter against Preston North End in the EFL Cup. That was the latest sign of his progress but Liverpool have consistently proven how much they rate him.
He’s signed three contracts since turning 17 last year, for one. Liverpool keep rewarding Blair for his development, with this only the latest sign that he keeps improving.
Understandably, fans took to Twitter to celebrate that Blair has his new contract. After all, the more talented youngsters on the books, the brighter the future looks.

Harvey Blair signs new Liverpool contract
As with every top youngster right now, there’s immediate excitement at Blair potentially playing with Harvey Elliott. The latter is certainly the brightest prospect at the club there’s a sense that Liverpool’s long-term plans revolve around him.
But really, there is an incredible number of exciting talents on the bink of the first-team. There’s Elliott & Blair, of course, but also Kaide Gordon, Mateusz Musialowski and Melkamu Frauendorf. And those are just the attacking players!
So this is really just a small step for Blair. Competition to be a part of Liverpool’s future is fierce. The Reds rate him highly – now he’s got to prove he’s the one they should invest their time in.
