On-Loan Reds Star Hoping Fulham Form Can Put Him in Contention for Liverpool Place Upon Return

Publish date:

Winger Sheyi Ojo has revealed he wishes to be part of the Liverpool's future when his loan at Fulham expires.

Ojo was sent out on loan after getting few chances for the Reds last season, and has taken to life at Fulham quickly.

Having joined in August, Ojo has been a key player for Fulham, making six appearances in their opening eleven Championship matches before sustaining a dislocated shoulder in the win over Queens Park Rangers.


However, the 20-year-old marked his return with a brace and assist against Sheffield United at Bramall Lane on Tuesday night as the Cottagers claimed all three points.

Featuring on the right, with Ryan Sessegnon marauding down the left side, Ojo is hoping to help guide Fulham back to the Premier League after suffering relegation in 2013/14.

But the England youth international is also determined to make himself a key name at Anfield, as quoted by the Echo.

"My aims now? To have a good, solid season under my belt [that] will put me in a good position next season to be playing for Liverpool.

"I am looking to build on that display against Sheffield [United]. The important thing for the team was to grind out a result and, hopefully, we can kick on now.

"I believe there is more to come," Ojo added. "I just need to get consistent games under my belt. The main reason I came here [Fulham] was to enjoy my football, and get as much game time as I can and help us with that main aim of getting promotion.

Ojo was a notable player in England's Under-20 World Cup winning triumph in the summer.
