Liverpool and Wigan Athletic have come to an agreement over the loan signing of talented teenager Sheyi Ojo. The Liverpool under-21 midfielder has been linked with a move to Wigan for the last couple of days, but he has completed his move on deadline day.
And he has posed for a picture with his new team's shirt at the DW Stadium after completing the loan move. He looked to be over the moon with his move to the club. If you look at the attached picture yourself you will understand that there was an element of sarcasm in the previous statement.
Ojo arrived at Liverpool from Milton Keynes Dons in 2011 and has impressed in the youth teams at the club. He is a fast and pacey winger, who can operate on either flank and has represented England at under-18 level.
Wigan boss Malky Mackay said of the deal, to the official Wigan website:
“I spoke to Brendan Rodgers at length about Sheyi and we both agreed that this is the next stage of his development. Brendan sees him as a Liverpool player of the future and will take him into his squad in the summer. We both hope that his time at Wigan Athletic can be a productive one for both parties."
He comes to Wigan with the club facing a relegation battle. They are currently second from bottom in the Championship, seven points adrift of Brighton and Hove Albion in the last safe place in the league. They are yet to win in 2015, a run which stretches back six games.
So Liverpool fans will be hoping Ojo's development is improved by this stint at the DW, while Wigan fans will hope he can drag their club to survival.
