This January transfer window has seen Liverpool make two signings so far: Takumi Minamino and Joe Hardy. Minamino arrives at the club as a bargain with mountains of potential. Despite this budget buy, our most important deal of the window could be Rhian Brewster’s loan move. The Englishman made his debut today and Swansea fans were heard singing ‘Rhian Brewster’ during the first half.
Brewster joined the Swans on loan shortly after coming on as a late substitute against Everton in the FA Cup third round.
The move will last until the end of the season with the hope that it will afford the 19-year-old with vital first team experience which will kick on his development.
As of yet Rhian hasn’t been able to establish himself at Anfield, he is eager to prove himself and this spell in Wales could be the chance he needs, in the youngsters defence he has had to contend with serious injuries.
The teenager made his debut today in the biggest game in Wales as his side took on Cardiff City. Swansea City fans were heard singing ‘Rhian Brewster’ during the first half – likely in response to him pestering the Cardiff backline when they were on the ball.
What RTK has to say
Whilst Rhian didn’t get on the score sheet today there was little more he could have done. The young lad hounded the Cardiff defence and was making smart runs throughout, the service was just shocking.
It is also important to note that this is the biggest game either side play all season, the opposition is arguably the most physical in the division – this was an impressive showing.
