Liverpool striker Sheia Ojo has gone on loan for the seventh time in his 10 years at Anfield, despite the club opting for a sale this summer.
Ojo joined Red as a teenager back in 2011, he became the most expensive 14-year-old footballer after a £ 2m transfer from MK Dons. He showed great potential during his time at the club’s academy before eventually breaking into the first team’s game.
The 24-year-old made 11 appearances under Jurgen Klopp in the German’s first campaign at Anfield. However, a series of loans have since followed.
The striker has played Wigan, Wolves, Fulham, Stade de Reims, Rangers and finally Cardiff, completely out of sight of Klopp, having played only twice in 2017.
This summer, he was dropped from the main squad for pre-season training, and instead trained with players under 23. He played in two of the first three games of the campaign for the club’s second squad, scoring goals against Merseyside rivals Everton.
But now Ojo has gone on a different loan, joining Millwall’s championship team.
Ojo’s contract expires
The attacker currently has a contract year left and will be looking for a permanent exit next summer.
However, Liverpool has the option to extend the deal for another 12 months. Then this will allow the player to return the fee in 2022.
Nobody asked for £ 5m this time, so that figure may need to be adjusted next summer – unless he leaves for free.
