Brewster’s last appearance for Liverpool was in the Community Shield against Arsenal at the end of August, with his missed penalty in the shootout giving the London club the victory.
While highly rated at Anfield, his pathway to the first team has been hindered. Liverpool’s front three of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane play virtually every week and Divock Origi and new signing Diogo Jota remain ahead of him in the pecking order.
Meanwhile, Leicester signed France Under-21 defender Wesley Fofana from Saint-Etienne.
The 19-year-old Fofana has played only one full season at senior level and joins versatile full back Timothy Castagne, who moved from Atalanta, in strengthening Leicester’s defense.
“I’ve watched Leicester City closely since they won the title (in 2016) and they’re a top club in the Premier League,” Fofana said. “I know I will learn a lot from the players and the manager here, which is one of the main reasons I came.”
