Liverpool's Sheyi Ojo joins Fulham on a season-long loan

Liverpool's Sheyi Ojo having Fulham medical ahead of season-long loan

He'd spent time training with the Dons' first team prior to the switch.

The England Under-19s global is one of the hottest properties in English football and is in the Fulham squad to face Leeds United at Elland Road tonight having signed his first professional deal in June with the West London club.

Fulham have signed Liverpool forward Sheyi Ojo on a season-long loan. In August 2015 the Hemel Hempstead born winger signed on loan for Wolves.

The left-winger competed in 30 matches in total for the two clubs, returning three goals and four assists and he will be hoping for similar success with Fulham. He made eight appearances for Liverpool in the 2015-16 campaign, and he has represented England at Under-16, Under-17, Under-18, Under-19 and Under-20 level.


And this summer he came on a substitute when England beat Venezuela 1-0 in the U-20s final for their first global trophy since winning the 1966 World Cup at Wembley.

"I'm delighted to welcome Sheyi Ojo to the Fulham Football Club", said vice-chairman and director of football operations Tony Khan.

"He possesses fantastic physical talents and also carries himself with poise and class".

The 20-year-old is understood to have had the chance to join the Cottagers, Middlesbrough or Newcastle after the clubs agreed loan terms with the Reds.
