Liverpool are set to recall promising winger Sheyi Ojo from his loan at Championship club Wolverhampton Wanderers as the Reds starlet has fallen out of favour at Molineux, reports the Liverpool Echo.
Andy Kelly claims that the reason for Liverpool recalling Ojo so early in his loan deal is that, alongside the 18-year-old’s lack of playing time for Kenny Jackett’s men, the Reds are hoping to give him a chance in their upcoming FA Cup tie with Exeter City.
Manager Jurgen Klopp will look to give fringe players an opportunity to force their way into his plans following his side’s injury crisis.
First team chances for Ojo have been so hard to come by at Wolves this season that the young winger opted to return to Liverpool before Christmas in order to play some Under-21 football and regain his match fitness.
The England Under-19 international will hope to impress for the senior team on Friday evening against Exeter City if he is eligible to play.
