Liverpool’s Harvey Elliott

Sixteen-year-old Liverpool forward Harvey Elliott has been banned from club football for 14 days after being found guilty of abusive language after calling England captain Harry Kane a "f*cking mong" in a Snapchat video.

The FA took to their official website to confirm the details of Elliott's suspension, declaring that he will be suspended from domestic club football for the next 14 days, meaning he will be allowed to return to action on 25th October.

- When does the transfer window reopen?

"Failure to do so within the relevant time frame shall result in his immediate suspension from all football and football related activity, until such time as the course is satisfactorily completed; and Mr Elliot is fined the sum of £350".

The teenager, who moved from Fulham to the European Champions in the summer, admitted a breach of FA Rule E3 in relation to a video posted on social media and provided a public apology.

Reacting to the suspension, a Liverpool spokesperson said: "Harvey's apology was honest, immediate and unequivocal".

"Given his age when this indiscretion was committed in a private setting and prior to signing for us we will continue to work with Harvey as relates to his conduct".

The England Under-17 worldwide is Fulham's youngest ever player after featuring for them in a Carabao Cup tie against Millwall in September 2018 at just 15 years of age.

Elliott joined Liverpool from Fulham in July and has already made a first-team appearance, playing the full match in Liverpool's League Cup clash with MK Dons last month.

He was named in the squad as Jurgen Klopp's side extended their flawless start to the league season with a 2-1 win over Leicester City.
