Liverpool agree deal for striker

LIVERPOOL have agreed to send striker Brooks Lennon to Real Salt Lake on loan.

The 19-year-old American will spend the 2017 campaign with MLS outfit in his homeland, according to the Liverpool Echo.

Lennon signed for Liverpool from Real Salt Lake in July 2015, penning a three-year deal.

He impressed for the under-18s before moving into the under-23s squad.

But unlike the likes of Ben Woodburn and Trent Alexander-Arnold, Lennon hasn’t been able to break into the first team.

Liverpool will hope regular first-team football will help Lennon push on before he returns later this year.

The USA Under-20 international spoke last month about adapting to the English game.

He said: “There is a lot of similarities and a lot of differences.

“Similarities-wise, the Liverpool academy and the Real Salt Lake academy are similar because the players are very skilful.

“There was a lot of skill on my old team and it prepared me really well for Liverpool.

“There’s major differences as to speed of play — it’s much faster here in England.

“The physicality is much better and I’ve kind of got used to it since I’ve been here and I feel like I’ve developed as a player, especially on the physicality side.”
