"My target is to score goals for Swansea City"
Champions League winner Rhian Brewster has set games and goals as his target after joining Swansea City on loan from European and Club World Cup champions Liverpool.
The highly-rated teenager has joined the Swans for the rest of the campaign after he completed a successful medical today.
Brewster, who has featured three times for the Reds this season in the EFL Cup and FA Cup, will train with his new team-mates for the first time on Wednesday and is available to make his debut in Sunday’s derby clash with Cardiff City.
And the 19-year-old, who was on the bench for Liverpool’s Champions League final win over Tottenham Hotspur last June, can’t wait to get started at the Liberty.
“I’m very, very excited to be part of this,” said Brewster, who will squad number 19. “I couldn’t wait to get here and get started, to be honest.
“I’ve been watching the results and the team closely. It’s a very young team but the quality is second to none. I want to bring something different to the team and help them.
“I’ve come here to try and play a lot of games and score a lot of goals for Swansea.
“It’s a great club. I’ve been watching them for ages – particularly when they were in the Premier League. Hopefully, I can help them get back to where they belong.
“At this moment in time, Swansea is the best team for me to join on loan. I want to help Swansea get promoted.”
Brewster joins a Swansea side that sits in the Championship play-offs – one point ahead of seventh-placed Millwall with 20 games remaining.
He also links up again with some familiar faces, with Brewster having played a starring role under Steve Cooper during England Under-17s’ success at the 2017 World Cup – a tournament he ended with eight goals and the Golden Boot.
And he will also have a friendly face to welcome him into the changing room, with Yan Dhanda a former team-mate of his at Anfield.
“Yan’s a great guy; I’ve known him since I first joined Liverpool when I was 14,” added Brewster.
“He just kept telling me to come to Swansea! We played together at Liverpool and he’s a great player to play with. Hopefully, we can play here together as well.
“Obviously, he moved on a couple of years ago but we’re back together now, so we’ll see what happens.”
