Brouwer: Set for loan switch
Utrecht have struck a deal with Liverpool to take promising striker Jordy Brouwer on a season-long loan.
The 20-year-old is yet to break through into the Reds' first team after joining from Ajax's academy in January 2007.
Brouwer is a regular in Liverpool's reserve side, although he is now set to garner experience in the Eredivisie.
Not for sale
Utrecht are reportedly keen to have the option of buying Brouwer permanently in the deal, but the Reds are against selling.
Brouwer could well have the option of a second destination with ADO Den Haag also enquiring about his availability.
In what could turn into a double deal for Utrecht, the club have also agreed a deal with Real Sociedad for Morten Skoubo.
"He wants to come here," said technical director Piet Buter. "He is looking forward to playing for an attack-minded team."
