Liverpool winger set for Ligue 1 loan move

Liverpool winger Sheyi Ojo looks increasingly likely to be heading out on loan to France, and Ligue 1 club Stade Reims.

Reims have expressed interest in a loan for the 21-year old, who, according to Sky Sports, is interested in the move, although nothing has yet been finalised between the clubs, with time running out before the French transfer window closes on Friday. .

The England under-21 international spent last season on loan at Fulham, and was part of their squad which eventually won promotion back to the Premier League. However, returning to Anfield, he finds there is no immediate prospect of first-team football this season, and both the player and his manager are keen that he finds a new loan deal, or his football development could be stunted.

He had been linked, earlier in the transfer window with Aston Villa, but, they have since signed an alternative, in the form of Everton winger Yannick Bolasie.

Andy is an exiled English football fan living in Cyprus. He loves all sports but football is his abiding passion, and he still has dreams every now and then about scoring the winning goal in a Wembley Cup Final, even though his playing days are long gone. He follows most major leagues, across Europe at least, and has a favoured team in each. When he’s not watching, listening, reading or downloading podcasts about football, he spend his time worrying about his beloved Arsenal.
