# Former Liverpool Left-Back Yasser Larouci Signs With Sheffield United
Yasser Larouci, the former Liverpool left-back, has returned to the Premier League after signing for newly-promoted Sheffield United. The 22-year-old Frenchman made two appearances for the Reds during the 2019/20 season, against Everton and Shrewsbury in the FA Cup.
## Larouci’s Impressive Form Earns Him a Move to the Premier League
Liverpool offered Larouci a new contract the following summer, but he opted to leave the club on a free transfer in 2021. His decision appears to have been vindicated, as he has enjoyed an impressive two seasons, particularly last season when he made 30 appearances in Ligue 1. This form earned him a call-up to the France Under-21s squad for this summer’s Euros.
Larouci has now signed on an initial season-long loan for the Yorkshire side. Speaking about his move, he said: “To play for Sheffield United and play in the Premier League, I think this is a good project for me. I am happy. We (Paul Heckingbottom) talked about the team, the project here and the formation and I think that will suit my game.”
## Reunited With Former Teammates
Larouci joins up with former LFC academy teammate Rhian Brewster at Bramhall Lane, while the Blades also have former Reds’ defender Jack Robinson among their ranks. “I know a few players here like Rhian and Iliman so that will be good to see them again and to work with them,” Larouci said. “I can’t wait to play. Hopefully I can play a part in some of the friendly games, and I will have time to show what I can do on the pitch. It is a chance for me to adapt with the team and everything else.”
## Another Former LFC Player Signs With Burnley
Another former LFC academy player, goalkeeper Lawrence Vigouroux, has also signed with fellow new boys Burnley this summer.
It’s great to see former Liverpool youngsters getting big opportunities in the Premier League. Yasser Larouci’s move to Sheffield United is a great opportunity for him to prove himself in England’s top flight and he will be hoping to make an impact in his debut season in the Premier League.
