Fulham sign Liverpool forward Ojo on loan

Fulham have signed Liverpool forward Sheyi Ojo on a season-long loan.

The 20-year-old could make his Cottagers debut in their Championship clash against Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday.

Fulham chairman Tony Khan told the club's official website: "I'm delighted to welcome Sheyi Ojo to the Fulham Football Club.

"I've had the pleasure of spending time with Sheyi and his family, and I've seen first hand what a tremendous work ethic Sheyi has both on and off the pitch.

"He possesses fantastic physical talents and also carries himself with poise and class, and I know that he's going to be a great addition to our squad."

Ojo, who has previously spent time on loan with Wigan and Wolves, has made 13 appearances for Liverpool since his debut in an FA Cup draw at Exeter in January 2016.

He was also part the England squad which won the Under-20 World Cup this summer.
