Leeds United

United are second in the Championship. Marcelo Bielsa’s side are just two points behind leaders West Bromwich Albion. At the minute the Yorkshire side have only Patrick Bamford and Eddie Nketiah to choose from. With Unai Emery unhappy with the limited opportunities afforded to the on loan Nketiah, the Arsenal striker could return home in January – leaving Leeds short staffed.

Bielsa plays gorgeous football. Leeds are a side that dominate possession and are impressive in the final third, demonstrating intelligent movement and slick passing. Playing at Elland Road would give Brewster experience of playing for a massive club as well as in a possession oriented side.

The Eagles are likely the best fit for Rhian Brewster’s abilities. He is deadly when playing on the shoulder of the last man due to his rapidity. Roy Hodgson’s side like to fling long balls forward to be flicked on, often countering quickly. These tactics would suit the poaching ability of Brewster but wouldn’t serve him well at Liverpool.

Aston Villa

Premier League experience could prove to be a decisive factor in any decision on a Rhian Brewster loan move. The Villains are just a point above the relegation zone and relying heavily on the exploits of Wesley up top.

The Birmingham side are a massive club with huge support, this would benefit the young striker. However, with the team not creating enough chances this season he could be starved up front.

 

Swansea

The Welsh side are sixth in the Championship. They play slick passing football and are ambitious. Their style of play could help Brewster adapt to what is expected of him in order to break into the Liverpool first team. However, he could find earning a starting berth difficult.

Our verdict

Leeds United is the ideal destination for a Rhian Brewster loan move. The 19-year-old would face fierce competition in Patrick Bamford which can only be positive. Marcelo Bielsa is a fantastic manager, what he is doing in the Championship is a mystery. This could be a vital opportunity for Brewster to develop under another world leading coach – we shouldn’t pass that up. If he gets six months at Leeds United under his belt, he could push for more minutes at Anfield next season.
