The RSL academy product returns home for the 2017 season, looking to earn first-team playing time.

Real Salt Lake has announced the acquisition of midfielder-forward Brooks Lennon on loan from Liverpool for the 2017 season.

Lennon, 19, is a product of the RSL academy and signed with Liverpool in 2015 after scoring 31 goals with RSL's Under-18 team in the 2014-15 season.

"Brooks is another in a long line of great stories from our academy," RSL general manager Craig Waibel said in a club release Monday. "They don’t all follow the same path, but we are proud to play a part in their development and get them on the field with Real Salt Lake. We’ve been following his development closely and to bring him back gives him a great opportunity to play first-team soccer."
