Liverpool starlet Ojo to undergo Wolves medical

Liverpool winger Sheyi Ojo is undergoing a medical at Wolverhampton Wanderers, HITC Sport understands.

Liverpool starlet Sheyi Ojo is poised to join Wolverhampton Wanderers on loan with the player undergoing a medical, HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club.

Ojo enjoyed a spell out on loan at Wigan Athletic last season, making 11 appearances for the Latics as he impressed at the DW Stadium.

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers believes Ojo's development would be best served by going out on loan again and Wolves have beaten a number of rivals to the 18-year-old.

Ojo has been involved in Liverpool's pre-season friendlies, but he is still a way down the pecking order in the first-team.

The England Under-18 international was named on the bench for a couple of Liverpool games last season, but Rodgers wants the attacker to gain some valuable first-team experience.

Wolves boss Kenny Jackett is keen to bolster his attacking options after seeing Bakary Sako leave Molineux earlier this summer upon the expiration of his contract and sees Ojo as an ideal replacement.

Ojo is set to become Wolves' second new signing in the last 48 hours after agreeing a deal to sign Adam Le Fondre on a season-long loan deal from Cardiff City.
