Bristol City will need to tread carefully as they eye up loan deal

Published

Bristol City’s previous experiences may have left a bad taste in the mouth of Liverpool, and the Robins will need to tread carefully if they are going to take Rhian Brewster on loan from January.

In 2018, Lee Johnson took midfielder Ryan Kent on loan for the second half of the season but the midfielder only made 10 Championship appearances, and later the Robins were left to face the wrath of Jurgen Klopp.

Bristol City was fined £200,000 by the current European champions by not playing their young talent enough, a controversial transfer policy put into the clause of loan contracts by the Premier League club.

With City now eyeing up Brewster for a potential loan move in January, they will need to tread carefully if they was to take the youngster on loan and get back into Klopp’s good books by playing the youngster as much as possible.

1. Who managed Bristol City between March 1993 and November 1994?

10 appearances were deemed too few by the Merseyside club when Kent had an ill-fated loan spell with City which won’t have aided his development, so Brewster would need to fit in most of the games at Ashton Gate if he ended up at the Championship club come January.

The Verdict

Liverpool’s controversial transfer policy can sometimes hurt clubs that are smaller than them but also back them into a corner and make sure that their loan player is getting enough game-time while out on loan.

Bristol City will be wanting to get back into Liverpool’s good books, and taking Brewster on loan for the second half of the season could help them do that.
