Exclusive: Liverpool warned to 'Be careful' with Harvey Elliott
Paul Robinson has urged Liverpool to be “careful” with their placement of Harvey Elliott if they do decide to loan him out next season.
The former Spurs and Leeds United keeper, speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs, claimed it would be a “big ask” for the 17-year-old to temporarily join a new club at such a young age.
The attacking midfielder holds the record for youngest player to play in the Premier League, 16 years and 30 days, and EFL Cup, 15 years and 174 days.
When asked whether the England under-17 international would be sent out on loan next season, Robinson told Football Insider: “Elliott is in the same situation as Brewster.
“He will develop as a player playing with a squad of players the quality that Liverpool have got but he is not going to play 20, 30 games for Liverpool next season. It is a question of where he will develop best because he is already a top-quality player.

“It would be a big ask to go out on loan at 17 but he has shown he is more than capable. They have to be careful. You would have to pick his loan location very cleverly.
“He would command a Premier League loan like Harry Wilson – that type of situation. Liverpool are not shy of putting their youngsters out on loan.”
Harry Wilson, 23, has spent the last three seasons out on loan with Derby County, Hull City and most recently Bournemouth.
