The 20-year-old spent a decade with the Reds’ Academy before his contract came to an end this summer. An England youth international, Brewitt links up with Boro’s Under-23 side.

Academy Manager Craig Liddle said: “We’re pleased to be welcoming Tom to Boro.

“He’s a talented lad who has 10 years of progress under his belt with Liverpool, and we’ll all be working hard to ensure that development continues at Boro.”

Brewitt joins Lewis Wing as a newcomer to Boro’s Academy, while Luke Armstrong and Enes Mahmutovic have also arrived in recent months.
