The 17-year-old talent arrived at Ewood with a glowing reputation from Kirkby and the forward has certainly not disappointed as we approach the halfway stage of the Championship campaign.
Grayson wrote in his Football League Paper column: “I wouldn't be at all surprised to see Blackburn's Harvey Elliott recalled by Liverpool.
“He's a cut above the Championship and I'm sure Premier League clubs have contacted the Reds about a loan.
“I wouldn't advise it, though. Harvey's playing every week, working under two great coaches in Tony Mowbray and Mark Venus. For him to play another 15-20 games at the age of 17 will do his development the world of good.
“Midway through a season, you're probably better off staying put and enhancing your reputation than risk sitting on a bench for six months."
