Rhian Brewster completes £23.5million transfer to Sheffield United from Liverpool

Rhian Brewster has completed a £23.5million transfer to Sheffield United from Liverpool.

The 20-year-old has put pen to paper on a long-term deal after snubbing interest from both Crystal Palace and Aston Villa.

Liverpool have insisted on a three-year buy-back clause being included in the deal as an insurance. A 15 per cent sell-on clause was also added.

Brewster travelled to Yorkshire on Thursday afternoon where he underwent a medical both that night and on Friday morning.

After completing his club-record move to the Blades, Brewster said: “It feels good to be here and I just can’t wait to get started to be honest.

“There were a few teams who came in but right now Sheffield United is the best option for me.

“Looking at the club, it is on the rise, finishing ninth last year and hopefully it can be better this season.

“Maybe I can add some goals, I’ll work hard and try and help the team to a higher place this year.”

Brewster spent last season on loan from Liverpool at Championship outfit Swansea.

The youngster scored 11 goals in 22 appearances for the Swans, who reached the Championship play-off final.

He returned to Liverpool this summer but was still behind the likes of Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Takumi Minamino in the pecking order at Anfield.

Diogo Jota was then signed from Wolves, and this proved to be the final coffin.

Blades boss Chris Wilder said: “At the top of the pitch we have one of the country’s hottest properties from Liverpool and for him to sign permanent here is fantastic for everyone concerned.

“There has been a lot of interest in him over the summer, a lot of speculation about who we were going for, but he has been our number one target and I am delighted to have secured his services.

“He’s a natural goalscorer. He finishes from any aspect, whether it is in the air or whether it’s spectacular goals, free-kicks or off his shin – he has a lovely habit of scoring goals, which is crucial in the Premier League.”
