Liverpool winger Sheyi Ojo has been given the green light to make his return to competitive action.
The 19-year-old has been sidelined since he was diagnosed with a stress fracture in his back in pre-season.
Ojo finally returned to training at Melwood last month but boss Jürgen Klopp has decided that he would benefit from spending time with the U23s squad at Kirkby in order to build up his match fitness.
He could feature for Michael Beale’s side away to Leicester City in the Premier League International Cup on Saturday (1pm kick-off).
“Ojo is a very young boy and he needs a lot of training,” Klopp said. “He’s not injured any more but he needs training, training, training and as much game time as possible. “We thought it made absolute sense that for the next few weeks he’s with the second team for the training and for the games. Anything we could do would be too early for him. “He needs to get a rhythm and come back in shape. He’s not match fit so he needs to collect minutes with the U23s.”
Ojo, who joined the Reds’ Academy from MK Dons in 2011, will be gunning to get his Liverpool career back on track after a breakthrough campaign in 2015/16.
Recalled from a loan spell at Wolves by Klopp last January, the pacey wideman enhanced his reputation as he made 11 first-team appearances for the Reds.
