Liverpool ace Elliott can be 'massive signing' for Sheffield United - Kenny
Liverpool wonderkid Harvey Elliott is an “unbelievable talent” and would be a “massive signing” for Sheffield United on loan.
That is according to ex-Blades goalkeeper Paddy Kenny, speaking exclusively to Football Insider about the 18-year-old winger.
The Sun reported on 25th July (print edition, p62) that Slavisa Jokanovic is eyeing the youngster.
Jokanovic handed Elliott his professional debut in 2018 during his time managing Fulham.
Elliot signed a new five-year contract with Liverpool earlier this month.
Kenny is enamoured by the prospect of Elliott reuniting with Jokanovic and turning out at Bramall Lane next season.

“I think he’d be a big success,” he told Football Insider correspondent Adam Williams.
“He’s an unbelievable talent and he played nearly every game last season on loan.
“He’s only just turned 18 so to get someone like that in would be a great capture. He’s young, full of energy and wanting to impress.
“It would be a massive signing. The manager’s got links to him with him from Fulham. They know each other well.
“But he’s still learning and Sheffield United could be a perfect place for him to be at this stage in his career.
“It’s a great club to go and learn from because there has been some amazing young players come through in recent years. It’s good for his career and his progression.”
Elliott enjoyed an excellent spell on loan with Blackburn Rovers last season.
He scored seven times and provided 11 assists in 41 matches for the East Lancashire side.
