UNCOVERED: Options, clauses in Liverpool Brewster sale to Sheffield Utd

Liverpool have secured a buy-back clause in their sale of Rhian Brewster to Sheffield United.

The Liverpool Echo says Brewster is set to complete a £23.5million move to Sheffield United.

The young striker travelled to join up with Chris Wilder's side on Thursday night ahead of carrying out a medical.

The Reds have agreed a total deal with the South Yorkshire club worth £23.5m, a club record fee for the Blades, which includes a 15% sell-on fee as well as the all-important buyback clause which will be valid for the next three seasons.

The club have continued with a tradition of insisting on a buyback clause when selling any highly-rated young players, much like they did when agreeing a deal with Bournemouth for Dominic Solanke.

As with Solanke, Brewster's development will be closely monitored by Loan and Pathways Manager Julian Ward.

Liverpool believe that Brewster needs a minimum of two years in the Premier League to aid him in the next step of his development.
