Should Newcastle Make Loan Move For Liverpool Starlet?



It’s been a dream season for Liverpool thus far. The Reds sit comfortably atop the league table after dispatching Everton 5-2 in the Merseyside derby yesterday. They maintain their 8 point advantage over Ayoze Perez and Leicester City in second and have won 14 of their 15 matches this campaign with one draw.

Their dominance has seen promising youngster Rhian Brewster not get much time on the pitch this season, however. The 19-year-old wonderkid has yet to make a Premier League appearance for Liverpool though he did start both Carabao Cup victories this season.

Due to the need for playing time to aid in his development, Jurgen Klopp is now open to allowing the striker to move on loan in the January window. The queue for the England under-21 international is getting quite long and now somewhat prestigious.

Rhian Brewster– Klopp to allow loan move for future star

In addition to Leeds and Swansea in the Championship, both Aston Villa and Crystal Palace have reportedly expressed interest in bringing Brewster in on loan for the remainder of the season.

It doesn’t end there as Bundesliga leaders Borussia Monchengladbach and also Klopp’s old club Dortmund have joined the race for the highly-rated youngster.

With Newcastle short on goals and the player not taking up a squad place at only 19, we wonder if Newcastle will try to make a move to get Brewster in on loan.

He would be a solid addition, though the issue could be that Liverpool would demand Brewster get a certain number of games, and that is always a dicey proposition with loan players.

This is one to keep an eye out on as the youngster is an immense talent and could provide Newcastle a very good option at striker.

    justthetoonofus (good name by the way) – from earlier I don’t see why the tax investigation would put off potential buyers? As I understand it the main thrust of the investigation is against the agents and yes we may have been complicit in some dodgy payments but I would have thought the worst punishment will be a fine of a few million which in football terms and against the value of the club is not a ‘show stopper’.

    Rather than borrowing other clubs’ talent, we should be investing in our own youth development system.

    Lesh I was just about to say the same, I find it a wee bit humiliating that we should be sniffing after other EPL clubs for loans, outright buys OK though.

    Or loans with a agree to buy if we’re happy with the player would be OK. ie. Kenedy who proved to be a disappointment and was decided against.

    Klopp has said he will only loan Brewster if he is guaranteed playing time anyway

    Apparently Leeds are after Gayle, so we might see him in the shop window tonight!

    RobL,

    That charge from December 2016 is to Ashley (when he lent us £33M when we were in the championship).

    As we know that money has been paid back, but the charge has not been relinquished (I mentioned it a while ago that this is another example of shoddy paperwork/administration)

    I suspect that once the accounts are released next year and therefore the £33M loan repayment is made official, then the charge will be removed.

    I’d snap Brewster up on loan if possible. If he can grab the goals we need to push up the table (or just to keep us hovering around mid table) then that’s great for us. I know we’d likely be increasing the value of someone else’s player and not gaining anything in the long run, but I’m just taking it season by season with Ashley in charge.

    It’s unlikely that Rhian would want to join us permanently or that we could even afford him, but it’s like applying a fresh bandage to patch the wound with Fat Ash pulling the purse strings. Like I said last night, he’s not going anywhere so I’ll take short term gains to keep us bobbing along and our heads above water.

    Some good pics on the NUFC site of the junior Magpies Xmas party.

    Who is the player in no. 5 doing the keepy uppy?

    Anybody on the blog there, either as a dad/mum or a junior Magpie?

    Aye I get the logic of what you are saying but I still find it a bit of a disgrace that we need to do that!

    Irish rob, among other things, was constantly referring to people as ”retarded” and calling them ballsacks, while graphically describing his own sex life and referring to paedophiles. Taking the total lack of charm out of it, I’m sorry but that’s not really on unless you have no standards whatsoever. I’m no prude and was in the Royal navy and have heard far worse but it’s just not appropriate on a NUFC blog. He gave the wife and Neil little option.

    willems is only on loan. harry wilson doing alright at bournemouth on loan too, as did Kenedy in his first loan spell.
    Loans may not be ideal but are a means to an end.

    I think loans work out quite well in certain circumstances. Rondon’s loan to us was a success, Islam Slimani less so. We should have turned Rondon’s loan into a permanent acquisition and failed to, but I’m very pleased we chose to take Slimani on loan rather than shelling out good cash for him.

    Willems is on loan from a non EPL club with, I believe an option to buy, I’m happy with that but would be very p!ssed off if we didn’t take up that option!

    When you say strange do you mean just somewhere you’re not used to, or is it a bit Hotel California-ish? 🙂

    Disciplinary action seems to have bleached the color. Many (or the significant ones) vanished. Only low decibel whispering of nice and courteous people. Totally unfamiliar for a football blog on a matchday.
