Liverpool starlet Sheyi Ojo has signed a new contract with the Merseyside club, before joining French club Reims in a season-long loan.

The 21-year-old has left Anfield for the fourth loan move of his Reds career.

21-year-old Sheyi Ojo will spend this season in Ligue 1

He previously enjoyed spells with Wigan, Wolves and Fulham.

Ojo has made 13 first-team appearances for Liverpool, scoring once.

A statement on Liverpool’s official website read: “Sheyi Ojo has today signed a contract extension with Liverpool and joined Stade Reims on loan for the remainder of 2018-19.”

Now the England Under-21 cap will fight for regular action at French club Reims, who have six points from their first three Ligue 1 matches.

Born in Hemel Hempstead, Ojo first attracted attention as a young teenager in the MK Dons academy, before switching to Liverpool aged 14.
