Liverpool would sanction the winter loan exit of Nigerian-blooded young midfielder Ovie Ejaria, according to reports.
Ejaria made his debut against Derby Country in September 2016 and featured eight times in total – twice in the league – before suffering a ruptured syndesmosis during a shock FA Cup loss at the hands of Wolverhampton Wanderers four months later.
After recovering from an untimely setback that reportedly scuppered a potential loan move to Leeds, he played a bit-part role for England during their memorable Under-20 World Cup win in South Korea but has yet to return to the first-team squad despite earning praise for his performances under Neil Critchley in Premier League 2.
Young Nigeria striker Taiwo Awoniyi(Royal Mouscron) is among five Liverpool players who are out on loan. The number will possible swell, with Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp recently hinting that certain loan exits were possible in January.
