Liverpool have agreed a professional contract with their teenage sensation Rhian Brewster.
The star of the U18 World Cup turned 18 in April and there were real fears he could be lured away from Anfield with Borussia Monchengladbach attempting to sign him.
He eventually managed to end fears among the fans about the reports about England youth international quiting Anfield for Borussia Monchengladbach.
Reds boss Jürgen Klopp and sporting director Michael Edwards have been in constant negotiations with Brewster and his representative to secure the 18 year-old on what is understood to be a five-year contract, retaining him until 2023.
Liverpool officially stated:
“The striker’s burning ambition had opened up the possibility of him moving elsewhere where he may have been guaranteed a more rapid promotion to first-team football.”
“But Klopp and Edwards sought to reassure him the pathway to the Liverpool line-up is there should potential be fulfilled – Brewster will be part of the senior squad when they return to pre-season training – and after a breakthrough in talks he will put pen to paper on the long-term contract in the coming days.”
