Premier League's Youngest Ever Player Is Available On A Free And Wanted By Barcelona

Barcelona are among a number of European clubs showing interest in Fulham's 16-year old starlet Harvey Elliott, who will soon be a free agent.

Elliott made history last month when he became the youngest player ever to play in the Premier League.

Born on 4 April 2003, he entered the fray as a late substitute in the 1-0 defeat to Wolves and broke the previous record set by former Fulham left-back Matthew Briggs against Middlesbrough 12 years ago.

But it's looking as though Elliott won't be pulling on the Cottagers shirt again as according to the Daily Mail, he has failed to agree a new contract at the club and will therefore be able to leave the club on a free.

Barcelona and RB Leipzig are waiting in the wings for the England Under-17 international, with Real Madrid also said to be showing interest in Elliott.

Elliott, the youngest ever player to pull on a Fulham shirt when he came off the bench aged 15 and 174 days in a Carabao Cup game against Millwall in September, wasn't even born when Wayne Rooney made his England debut.
