Harvey Elliott lays out plan as he breaks silence on Liverpool loan exit

New Blackburn Rovers loan signing Harvey Elliott has outlined his plan to help the club achieve promotion to the Premier League.

The Liverpool winger penned a deal on Friday to spend the rest of the season with the Championship outfit, and told the club website of his excitement at being presented with a new challenge.

"I can’t wait to get started and I’d like to thank Rovers for giving me the opportunity to come here and show everyone what I can do," he said.

"It’s a really good club and I’m really looking forward to getting started with the team. It’s been a hectic last couple of days not knowing what I’d be doing, but I’m really happy to be here.

"I’m really looking forward to meeting the boys and working with the gaffer and the staff.

"I was excited when I heard of the interest. I wanted to see what the club was all about so I watched a couple of games and researched everything about the club and the squad, to see the competition in my position."

Elliott's signing capped off a frantic deadline day for Rovers, who also added Barry Douglas, Tom Trybull and Aynsley Pears to their ranks.

The 17-year-old continued, stating that he feels the club are in a good place to push for promotion this campaign.

"The team have got off to a great start and hopefully we can reach the end goal by getting promoted to the Premier League.

"The style of play is very similar to what I’m used to. It’s a team that press well, play out from the back and allow players to play with freedom really," he added.

"I’m excited and hopefully I can fit in well here. My main priority is about working hard for the team. I think every player needs that work and desire for the team.

"I’m creative and want to give this my best shot for the team and the gaffer.

"Rovers is my club, I need to work hard and I will be doing all I can to help us back to the Premier League."

Elliott made two top flight appearances last season for Liverpool and is regarded as a highly promising talent with bags of potential.

He could be in line to make his debut for the Lancashire side on Wednesday as they travel to fifth-placed Watford in the Championship.
