Tottenham news: Bent reacts to potential Brewster loan move

Liverpool sensation Rhian Brewster has been urged to reject a potential loan move to Tottenham by Darren Bent.

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider assistant editor Russell Edge, the former Spurs striker believes a move could mess with the youngster’s development.

Tottenham have joined a host of clubs who want to take the 20-year-old on loan as they look to secure a back up to Harry Kane, as revealed by Football Insider.

Aston Villa, Newcastle, Brighton, Fulham and Crystal Palace are all interested in a short-term move for Brewster, according to Goal.

Asked by Football Insider whether he thinks a move back to his old club would be good for Brewster, Bent said: “You’re messing around with Brewster’s development. He can’t be somebody who sits on the bench.

“I would wait and see what happens and go somewhere where he could progress and play.

“I do like what Mourinho’s doing, but I’m just a bit nervous about him not getting enough game time.

“Someone like Kane, we’ve seen he has a lot of injuries but at the same time we can’t say that’s going to be the case.

“I would prefer someone like Callum Wilson because I don’t like seeing youngsters go to a club and not get enough game time.

“You look at Ryan Sessegnon. I had really big aspirations for him, I thought he’d do well and he’s hardly kicked a ball down there.”

Brewster impressed on loan at Championship side Swansea City in the second half of last season.

After joining in January the forward netted 11 goals in 22 games.

The London-born man is yet to feature in the Premier League for Liverpool but has started two League Cup games for the Reds.
