Brewster sends touching message to Liverpool after Sheffield United transfer


Rhian Brewster has penned an emotional message to Liverpool after completing his transfer to Sheffield United.

The 20-year-old striker has moved to Bramall Lane in a £23.5million deal after The Blades beat off interest from several other Premier League clubs.

Brewster joined Liverpool’s academy from Chelsea’s youth set-up at the age of 14 and was tipped for big things at Anfield.

But despite impressing on loan at Swansea last season, Jurgen Klopp was happy to let Brewster move on, with the youngster bidding a final farewell to the club on social media.

“After years of learning and growing at Liverpool the time has come for me to head onto a new chapter,” he wrote on Twitter.

“An emotional thank you to everyone at LFC for their belief and support in me every step of the way, through all the good times and tougher ones as well.

“Huge love to all my teammates, taking me under their wing and pushing me to be better every single day.

“I leave here with special memories and countless learnings. But most importantly, better than I arrived. YNWA.”

Brewster’s former Liverpool teammate Virgil van Dijk commented on the post, writing: “My guy,” along with love heart and fist bump emojis.

Sheffield United broke their club transfer record to land Brewster, but the deal included a 15 per cent sell-on fee as well as a buy-back clause should Liverpool wish to re-sign him in future.

He has now joined up with Chris Wilder’s squad ahead of their weekend clash with Arsenal.

Discussing his move to the Blades – where he will wear the no.24 shirt – 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.”
