Liverpool forward Rhian Brewster has signed a five-year deal with Sheffield United for a club-record fee of 23.5 million pounds ($30.40 million), British media reported on Saturday.

As part of the deal, Liverpool negotiated a 15% sell-on clause and a buy-back option that will be active for the next three seasons.

"At the top of the pitch we have one of the country's hottest properties from Liverpool and for him to sign permanently here is fantastic for everyone concerned," Blades boss Chris Wilder said in a statement here.

“There has been a lot of interest in him over the summer, a lot of speculation about who we were going for, but he has been our number one target and I am delighted to have secured his services.”

Brewster, who spent the second half of last season on loan at Swansea City, shot to fame in 2017 when he led England to the Under-17 World Cup with a tournament-high eight goals.

Brewster’s last appearance for Liverpool was in the Community Shield against Arsenal at the end of August, with his missed penalty in the shootout giving the London club the victory.

“There were a few teams who came in but right now Sheffield United is the best option for me.

"Looking at the club, it is on the rise, finishing ninth last year and hopefully it can be better this season. Maybe I can add some goals, I’ll work hard and try and help the team to a higher place this year,” Brewster said.

United, who have yet to score or earn a point in the Premier League this season after three games, stand second-bottom and travel to in-form Arsenal on Sunday.
