Sheffield United have signed young striker Rhian Brewster from Liverpool in a club-record deal believed to be around £23.5m.
His transfer was confirmed on Friday evening and he won’t be in the Sheffield United squad for the Premier League visit to Arsenal.
The Blades were not able to register him in time for this weekend’s game against the Gunners.
Liverpool inserted a 15% sell-on clause into his transfer to Sheffield United and they also have a buyback clause that’s valid for three years.

Rhian Brewster attracted the interest of several clubs before he opted for Sheffield United.
Other Premier League outfits such as Aston Villa, Brighton & Hove Albion and Crystal Palace were also keen on signing the 20-year-old attacker.
Rhian Brewster is an England u-21 international and he spent the second half of last season on loan at Swansea City in the English Championship.
He netted 11 goals in 22 appearances for the Welsh side as they were propelled to the playoffs.
Brewster returned to Liverpool this summer after the Swansea City loan spell and went on to score some goals in preseason friendlies.
The arrival of Diogo Jota meant that the player had to leave the Reds for better first team appearances.
