Report: On loan Sheyi Ojo could start for Liverpool this weekend

Paisley Gateway

Sheyi Ojo is on loan at Wolves from Liverpool, but is set to be recalled.

Liverpool are set to recall Sheyi Ojo from Wolves, report The Guardian, and plan to start him this weekend.

The Reds face Exeter City in the FA Cup amid a busy fixture schedule and mounting injury crisis.

Philippe Coutinho and Dejan Lovren picked up hamstring injuries in the midweek win over Stoke City, and the squad is being stretched.

Ojo is just 18-years-old and has made a good impact on loan at the Championship side this season, picking up where he left off with an impressive loan at Wigan Athletic at the end of 2014/15.

He has scored three goals in 19 games for Wolves, but has not yet been officially recalled, and the Reds face a race against time to get his registration confirmed in time for the FA's deadline on Friday.

He will hope to follow in the footsteps of fellow youngster Jordon Ibe, who was recalled from a loan spell at Derby County last January, and immediately established himself in the Liverpool side, and struck the important winner this week against Stoke in the Capital One Cup semi-final.
