Sheffield United & Crystal Palace compete for Brewster

While Liverpool make strides in the transfer window, Rhian Brewster could find himself out of the door before the October 5 deadline.

The 20-year-old is an unquestionable top prospect, but long-term injuries and a lack of opportunities have taken their toll. Therefore, he left for Swansea City on loan mid-way into last season in the Championship.

An upgrade to a Premier League this season, however, seems likely with Sheffield United boss Chris Wilder confirming talks over a loan deal amid interest from Crystal Palace as well. [Yorkshire Live]

Could Otamendi and Kounde trade places?
