Liverpool may buy back Rhian Brewster next summer if he stars for Sheffield United this season, according to Danny Mills.

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs, the former England international suggested that the 20-year-old took the decision to leave Anfield upon realising that there were few first team opportunities on Merseyside.

Sheffield United confirmed the capture of the England under-21 international for a club-record £23.5million last Friday after Football Insider revealed offers from both the Blades and Crystal Palace.

According to The Athletic, the Reds have inserted a 15 per cent sell on clause into the deal as well as a buyback option which that is valid for three years.

Brewster spent the second half of the 2019/20 campaign on loan at Swansea City where he scored 11 goals in 22 Championship appearances.

When asked by Football Insider if it the deal was the best move for all parties, Mills said: “They can buy him back if they want him and if he has a fantastic season they can go, ‘You know what, we’ll have him back.’

“There is no big issue if he does well because they also have a sizeable sell-on clause.

“He is a player that needs to be playing regular football. He will have looked at the situation at Liverpool and realise that he is not going to get a massive chance at Liverpool. He will want to play after a superb season last season.

“Chris Wilder has given him a big opportunity. They need a goal scorer and he is somebody that can put the ball in the back of the net.”
