REVEALED: Liverpool blocked recalling Elliott from Blackburn

Blackburn Rovers' loan deal for Harvey Elliott is watertight.

The Daily Star says Liverpool are unable to recall Elliott due to a clause in his loan contract with Blackburn.

At the start of the season, the highly-rated forward was signed by the Rovers to help his development.

But he has surpassed expectations in the Championship, where he has quickly become a key player.

Tony Mowbray is a huge fan of the 17-year-old, who is a first-team regular at Ewood Park.

He has made 20 appearances for Blackburn, scoring four goals and making seven assists in the process.

Only Emiliano Buendia is averaging more key passes per 90 minutes than the teenager in the division.
