Football League World’s Swansea City fan pundit Jacob Bellayuto has urged his club not to sign Liverpool forward Rhian Brewster during the January transfer window.
The Sun reported last week that the Swans were considering a loan move for the highly-rated youngster, but Bellayuto is keen to see his side take a more long-term approach with their winter recruiting.
“I don’t think Brewster is someone we should look to bring in on loan,” the regular punter told Football League World.
“It isn’t that I don’t think he is talented, but I believe we need to start looking towards players who will stay with us into the future.
“We already have plenty of loan players and adding more to the mix would just take away opportunities for our own players to possibly get experience.”
Should Swansea City move for Rhian Brewster?
Brewster has long been touted as one of the Reds’ next big things but is yet to play regular first-team football at any level – turning out for Liverpool’s first-team just twice.
Steve Cooper already has four loanee’s within his first-team squad, with goalkeeper Freddie Woodman, centre-back Ben Wilmott, striker Sam Surridge and winger Aldo Kalulu all signing on temporary deals from Newcastle, Watford, Bournemouth and FC Basel respectively.
With 15 games of the season played, Swansea currently sit in fourth place in what has been an impressive campaign so far, with a late win against Wigan their latest achievement.
This weekend sees them travel to fellow play-off chasers Sheffield Wednesday and Cooper will be keen to see a similar performance once again.
