Liverpool have agreed a professional contract with their teenage sensation Rhian Brewster, ending fears the England youth international could quit Anfield.

Manager Jürgen Klopp and sporting director Michael Edwards have been in constant negotiations with Brewster and his representative to secure the 18 year-old on what is understood to be a five-year contract, retaining him until 2023.

The striker’s burning ambition had opened up the possibility of him moving elsewhere where he may have been guaranteed a more rapid promotion to first-team football.

But Klopp and Edwards sought to reassure him the pathway to the Liverpool line-up is there should potential be fulfilled - Brewster will be part of the senior squad when they return to pre-season training - and after a breakthrough in talks he will put pen to paper on the long-term contract in the coming days.
