Liverpool has allowed one of their academy graduates Brooks Lennon to move to the US to join MLS side, Red Salt Lake FC.
This is according to a report in the Liverpool Echo that says the young forward will be joining on a free transfer in January.
It has been difficult for the 20-year-old attacker to break into the Liverpool side and he has been out on loan in Utah in search of regular playing time.
The young forward is one of the most talented stars to come out of club’s academy in recent times, which showcase his talent to the world. But the decision of manager Jurgen Klopp to look elsewhere for players like Mohammed Salah and Dominic Solanke have reduced the chances of academy graduates like Lennon of getting first team action at Anfield.
Brooks had initially joined the side on loan earlier this year scoring three goals and assisting four in 25 games for the club. He will now hope to get more playing time at the MLS club and prove his worth once again.
Despite having a stellar career at the academy, Liverpool have ignored Brooks’ talent. Maybe if he proves himself elsewhere he might be finally considered for a return to the club.
However, it’s high time clubs started trusting the academies they invest lot of money in.
