Liverpool winger Sheyi Ojo has joined Cardiff City on loan for the rest of the season. The Bluebirds were keen on recruiting the Reds wide player by fending off interest from Nottingham Forest to seal the player’s season-long loan transfer in this off-season (via BBC).
Ojo’s Fruitful Loan Spell In The Scottish Premiership Last Season
The 23-year-old enjoyed a semi-impressive loan spell with Rangers in the Scottish top-flight last season when he produced a series of eye-catching displays as a key component of Steven Gerrard’s attack. The one-time English U-21 international registered five goals and seven assists in 36 matches for the Glaswegian outfit in the last term across all fronts.
However, Ojo struggled to give a good account of himself when representing the Ibrox outfit in Europe as he could only average 1.2 shots, 0.2 key passes and 0.8 dribbles per game in the UEFA Europa League (stats via whoscored). Thus, there are some serious question marks over whether he is good enough to play at the highest level week in week out.
Another loan spell away from Anfield this summer could be the way to go for the talented winger with the Reds hoping that he would return as a better version of himself at the end of next season. Ojo needs to ensure regular game time in the coming years if he intends to become a top talent in English football someday.
What Does The English Talent Offer On The Field?
Ojo has decent pace in his locker and excels at providing a good outlet for his team out on the wide areas. He can create space for himself to get a few shots in on-target. The English attacker has done well to score and create his fair share of goals in the final third over the past 12 months. However, he is still not ready to feature for Liverpool in the Premier League week in week out.
Ojo Set To Join Cardiff City On Loan: Good Move For Everyone Involved?
The Reds can benefit from sending Ojo out on loan once again as it will help him take his game to another level if he can prove his worth at the Cardiff City Stadium next season. The reigning champions of England have got enough depth in their squad and have no immediate need for Ojo’s services this summer.
The English wide player’s loan departure to join the Bluebirds seems like a good move for everyone involved. Cardiff will be getting a promising winger in Ojo while Jurgen Klopp’s team will be able to get his name off their wage bill for another season, which will be win-win scenario for both clubs ahead of the new campaign.
