Leaving Liverpool for Sheffield United makes sense
Brewster did well for Swansea City last season, as the striker played an important role in the Swans finishing in the top six of the Championship table.
The 20-year-old joined the Swans on loan from Liverpool in January 2020, and scored 11 goals in 22 league games for the Welsh outfit, according to WhoScored.
It was going to be tough for Brewster to break into the Reds’ first team, and it makes sense for that he is reportedly on his way to United.
The Blades did well in the Premier League last season, and under manager Chris Wilder, the youngster will progress and develop.
Brewster needs regular playing time in the Premier League to progress and develop, and at United, he will get it.
