Chris Wilder beat off competition from Premier League rivals to win the race for Brewster

Brewster’s stock rose last season as he played a key part in Swansea City’s run to the Championship play-offs. 

Beaten in the semi-finals by Brentford, Brewster departed Steve Cooper’s side and returned to Anfield hopeful of forcing his way into Klopp’s plans. 

He departed the Championship side having scored 11 goals in 22 games, and Brewster acknowledged he needed regular football to continue his development.

While Brewster is popular at Liverpool it was felt that he was not yet ready for a regular first team berth and so his exit to Sheffield United has been sanctioned. 

Both Crystal Palace and Aston Villa were credited with an interest in Brewster but he has elected to join Chris Wilder in Sheffield for the 2020-21 campaign. 

Brewster, who was part of the England team to win the Under-17 World Cup back in 2017, has been recruited in a bid to help the Blades in attack.

Wilder’s side are yet to score in their opening three Premier League games this season and are marooned in 19th in the table. 

They take on Arsenal at the Emirates this weekend before hosting Fulham on October 17, which could be Brewster’s first game for his new club.
