Player Profile

Oluwaseyi 'Sheyi' Ojo, was fourteen years old when he signed for Liverpool in 2011 from MK Dons for a fee believed to be in the region of £2million. Already capped by England at under 16 level, he continued his development at Anfield and went on to represent his country at under 17 level when just fifteen years old. The winger was an unused substitute for two games over the Christmas period in 2014-15 before being loaned to Wigan Athletic in February. Although he played eleven times scoring one goal, he could not prevent the club's slide into League One.

Ojo was included in Brendan Rodgers' squad for the pre-season tour of the Far East and Australia and then grabbed a late winner in the final friendly of the summer away at Swindon Town. However two days later he was loaned to Wolverhampton Wanderers for the season to continue his development. He scored twice in sixteen appearances at Molineux but with the Reds suffering an injury crisis he was recalled in January, making his first competitive appearance in a red shirt at Exeter in the 3rd round of the FA Cup, where he came on as a 70th minute substitute for Jerome Sinclair. He scored his first goal in the replay and went on to make eight Premiership appearances for the Reds before the end of the season. 

A back problem curtailed Ojo's progress during 2016-17 and he was unavailable until November. He made just two appearances, both against Plymouth in the FA Cup. In the summer he did make the England under 20 squad, becoming world champions in South Korea. He was then loaned to Fulham for the whole of the 2017-18 season, playing 22 times as they were promoted via the playoffs. He signed a contract extension on 30th August 2018 and was loaned to French Ligue Un side Stade Reims for the 2018-19 season. Although he struggled in France, where he made just three league starts and scored once, in a League Cup tie, he tweeted at the end of the season that he had learnt from the experience. On 18th June 2019, it was announced that Ojo would be joining Rangers on a season long loan. He made his competitive debut on 9th July, scoring in a 4-0 win over Gibraltar side St Joephs in a Europa League qualifier.
