Reigning Premier League champions Liverpool have inserted a buyback clause of £40m into the contract of young striker Rhian Brewster who’s closing in on an exit from the club.
This was revealed by Liverpool correspondent IndyKaila.
According to him, Rhian Brewster is close to signing for Sheffield United in a £20m transfer.
The Blades have been in discussion with Liverpool over the England u-21 striker.
Sheffield United initially wanted a loan deal for the player but Liverpool were adamant that Rhian Brewster will only leave the club on a permanent deal.

Other Premier League sides like Aston Villa, Crystal Palace and Brighton & Hove Albion are also keen to sign the 20-year-old who shone for Swansea City in the English Championship last term.
Rhian Brewster scored 10 goals in just 20 games for Swansea City while he was on loan for the second part of the last campaign.
Swansea City are also interested in re-signing him but the second tier club can’t compete with the Premier League teams for his signature.
