Jurgen Klopp has decided to send midfielder Ovie Ejaria on loan to Reading for the rest of the season.
The 21-year-old will reportedly have a medical at the Madjeski on Monday ahead of his six-month stay, report The Sun.
Having signed a long-term contract the club in June, he was sent to Rangers but, having grown unsettled in Scotland, returned in December and will now be part of Jose Gomes’ squad for the rest of the Championship campaign.
The London-born midfielder was highly-rated by Rangers manager Steven Gerrard and was disappointed to see his stay end prematurely.

“Am I disappointed he’s gone? Yes. Do I think it’s the right decision? No, because I think he had an incredible opportunity here,” Liverpool legend Gerrard said at the time.
“But I’m never going to stand in a player’s way who is not happy and who is not settled because I have people who are desperate to wear the shirt and who would run through brick walls to wear it.
“It is what it is. I have to accept the decision. I’m sad about it, I wish him all the best. He’s a nice kid, very quiet. He told me it was 100 per cent football reasons and I have to respect that.”
Once Ejaria’s loan at Reading is over, he is expected to return to Anfield and compete for a first-team place.
It will be his third spell away from Anfield following a stint at Sunderland last season and then Rangers this term.
