      Step up for him going to Mainz,another reason to watch the german league i guess.

      He looks like a beast. Hopefully this is the key to getting him a UK work permit.

      Liverpool forward Taiwo Awoniyi is recovering well after suffering a head injury during loan club FSV Mainz 05's Bundesliga clash with Augsburg.

      The 22-year-old had to be stretchered off midway through the first half of Sunday’s match due to an accidental collision and subsequent heavy fall.

      Awoniyi was taken to hospital and underwent a scan, which revealed no break, and he remained there overnight for further monitoring.

      The medical teams at both Liverpool and Mainz have been in contact regarding Awoniyi’s injury and will continue to assess him before any return to action.

      Article about his loan club, Union Berlin. I haven't studied the work permit protocols but if he's a first team regular in Germany he should qualify by the end of the season, yes? He's becoming quite a force offensively over there. I had assumed he was just being prepared for selling, but now I wonder if he might fight for a place in our team come this summer.

      Because even if he had a work permit he'd be a waste of a roster spot. He'd be too good to be with the U23s but not good enough to play on the first team, like a Brewster situation.

      And 5 goals in 14 games is not "tearing it up", but good for him to have found a starting spot on a team. That doesn't mean he should be here.

      He's an odd one for sure. You'd think we would have just released him or sold him given these work permit issues. Only thing I can think of is that people rate him within the club and think there's a chance he'd get a permit soon?

      I imagine it'll be like that kid Allan we signed a few years ago. Loaned him out for a few years to help with his work permit situation then eventually sold.

      5 goals 3 assists in his last 9 games since getting a starting spot in the team.

      That's pretty impressive in the Bundesliga by all accounts he's a big reason why Union Berlin are in really good form and CL place contention.
