Liverpool extend Brewster loan


Liverpool have agreed a deal to loan Rhian Brewster to Swansea City for the rest of the campaign, per The Daily Mirror

The striker agreed a move to the Championship club in the January transfer window. 

The COVID-19 pandemic brought all football to a screeching halt, of course, and Liverpool have now moved to ensure that the forward will be able to see out the campaign with the Welsh side. 

Brewster has made 11 appearances since his move to the Liberty Stadium and has scored four goals, per Transfermarkt, having emerged as a star during his time in the Liverpool youth system. 

Indeed, the 20-year-old made a total of 45 appearances across all age groups and scored 20 goals, while he has also been capped at Under-16, Under-17, Under-18 and Under-21 level by England, winning the World Cup with the U17s in 2017. 

The Mirror also reports that Harry Wilson will see out his loan spell with Bournemouth, as the Reds look to expose the two youngsters to first-team football. 

GIVEMESPORT'S Harry Sherlock says... 

This is a sensible, considered move from the Reds. 

Brewster obviously has a number of hurdles to jump through before he can be considered a first-team player under Jurgen Klopp, given the fact that the likes of Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah, and Sadio Mane stand in his way. 

Letting him finish the season at Swansea guarantees him first-team football and means he will have even more opportunities to hit the back of the net and impress. 

As for Wilson, he is currently on his fourth loan spell away from the Reds and one has to feel that something special will have to happen for him to force his way into Klopp's plans. 

To that end, keeping both players out on loan makes all the sense in the world.
