Rhian Brewster has joined Sheffield United from Liverpool on a five-year contract for £23.5-million. The Reds have a 15% sell-on clause and a buy-back option.
“Rhian Brewster is a Blade. United have again smashed the club’s record transfer fee to secure the services of the sought-after striker, patiently fighting off competition from Premier League rivals in the process,” read a statement on the club’s website.
“Brewster has penned a five-year deal at Bramall Lane, with United agreeing a substantial, undisclosed fee with Liverpool for the services of the England U21 international and it’s a piece of business that has left Chris Wilder delighted.”
Of the finer details of the deal to bring Brewster to Bramall Lane, chief executive, Stephen Bettis, explained: “From an attacking perspective, Rhian has been the management team’s top target throughout the off season and the board is delighted to be able to deliver. It has taken time, the level of outlay is unprecedented at Bramall Lane but we’ve finally got our man.”
