Rhian Brewster the record signing, but Phil Jagielka the highest paid: Sheffield United weekly salaries – in pictures

Young striker given huge responsibility after leaving Liverpool to lead line for struggling Blades

Leading the attack at a club struggling at the foot of the Premier League is a tough task for any striker.

But to do so as a new £23.5 million record signing, aged just 20 and making your top-flight league debut, is a whole new ball game.

Unable to break into the formidable attack at champions Liverpool, Rhian Brewster decided the time was right to take the plunge after a decent half-season on loan at second-tier Swansea City.

Sheffield United manager Chris Wilder called Brewster "one of the country's hottest properties" after completing a deal for a player who scored goals in European Championships and World Cups for England Under-17s.

While the young attacker has yet to find the net, he goes straight in near the top of the Blades' earners. But it is veteran defender Phil Jagielka who remains the highest paid player, despite appearing just twice in the Premier League this season. The 38-year-old signed a new one-year deal in the summer.

One player that looks to be heading for the Bramall Lane exit is English midfielder John Lundstram, who is in the last year of his contract but has recently turned down a new deal that Wilder claimed "is up there with the top players at the club".

The 26-year-old is currently one of the lowest paid and can sign a pre-contract agreement with teams outside of England from January.
