Liverpool forward Rhian Brewster has put an end to the uncertainty surrounding his future by signing his first professional contract at the club in a five-year deal

The 18-year-old is being considered one of the biggest young prospects in European football right now and led the charge for the England Under 17s side’s triumphant World Cup campaign last summer with his eight goals earning him the Golden Boot award.

Brewster had been linked with a move to the Bundesliga this summer, but he has now committed his long-term future at Anfield by signing his first professional contract in a five-year deal.

Brewster told the club website: “It feels great. I’ve wanted to do this for a very long time now and I think it’s the right moment for me and my family. I’m looking forward to getting back fit and making some appearances.

“Since I got here the club has been amazing to me and treated me like family. It seems like I’ve been here my whole life, to be honest. It’s coming up to my fifth season now.

“I [still] remember my first training session. It’s amazing and I can’t wait to get started.”

The former Chelsea youth striker has made just the one appearance for the senior side in last summer’s preseason friendly against Sydney FC.
