Exclusive: Major Rhian Brewster transfer development after Klopp U-turn
Liverpool are open to loaning out Rhian Brewster in January after a U-turn from Jurgen Klopp, Football Insider can reveal.
The Merseyside giants’ boss put the block on the striker, 19, being loaned out in the summer window as he integrated him into the senior side.
A Liverpool source has told Football Insider that Klopp is now ready to listen to temporary offers for Brewster in the winter transfer window.
The manager is not expecting the rising star to get much game time outside of the domestic cup competitions.
Brewster has made two appearances for Liverpool this season, playing the full 90 minutes of the League Cup wins over Arsenal and MK Dons.
But he is still waiting for his Premier League and Champions League debuts, and has made the bench on just two occasions in the two main competitions this season.

Klopp is eager for Brewster to gain more senior experience in the second half of the season.
The England Under-21 international is set to spearhead the attack in the League Cup quarter-final against Aston Villa next month, 24 hours before the first team play in the Club World Cup in Qatar.
Brewster revealed to FourFourTwo magazine in September that Klopp had prevented him from going out on loan in the summer window.
Asked about the possibility of a loan to gain experience, Brewster said: “Yeah, I spoke to him at the beginning of the season and he just said ‘no’. He doesn’t want me to go on loan, he wants me to stay. So that’s fair enough and it’s good to hear.”
