Liverpool’s young striker Brooks Lennon has made a permanent move to US club Red Salt Lake on a free transfer.
According to Liverpool Echo, the transfer will be finalised next month. The 20-year-old had insufficient opportunities at Anfield, thanks to the plentiful events that Jurgen Klopp has at his disposal. The youngster has settled the year at Utah as he went studying for the first-team performance.
Lennon’s deal with Liverpool was set to depart at the end of the current term. Considering the amount of talent at the club, it was always running to be tough for him to cut through.
The starlet joined the American team on loan back in March, although he netted only 3 goals and 4 assists in the 25 matches he played. Real Salt Lake rode on the effective youth show to end the 2017 season well.
They have now moved on to obtain the services of one of the youngsters who helped the club turn everything around! The 20-year-old Lennon’s enforcement follows his heavenly showing for the U.S. at the Under-20 World Cup.
Lennon is a speedy right attacker who can also play as a lone striker. He was solid with the youth clubs at Anfield but problems related to his work license in the U.K. limited his opportunities at Liverpool, ultimately ending in a loan to Real Salt Lake.
It remains unclear if the MLS club has paid something to get the player issued from his deal early. As you know, his deal ends only next summer. Liverpool didn’t see future for Lennon at the club despite the player impressing all the way through the academy ranks.
