Sheyi Ojo has signed a new five-year contract with Liverpool and will spend this season on loan at Wolverhampton Wanderers, reports the club's official website.

Ojo signed for the Reds as a schoolboy in 2011 from Milton Keynes Dons for £2 million and has represented England at Under 16, 17 and 18's level. 

The 18-year-old winger has yet to make his full debut for Brendan Rodgers' first-team but was named amongst the substitutes against Leicester City and Burnley last December. He was also part of Liverpool's pre-season tour of the Far East and Australia and scored the winning goal in their 2-1 friendly win against Swindon Town last Sunday.

Ojo is certainly one for the future at Anfield and had a highly successful loan spell at Wigan Athletic last campaign and gained valuable first-team experience at the Latics. 

He joins Wolves for a full-season and he will likely play a pivotal role Kenny Jackett's side who will be in the hunt for promotion after missing out on a play-off place on goal difference last term.

He proved he is more than capable of performing in the Championship last season and his aggressive nature and rapid pace will give Wolves plenty of options

Young Stars

Liverpool have a number of young players who they're keen to keep hold of.

Jordan Ibe has too recently committed himself to the Reds and he has a massive future ahead of him. Ibe was called back early from his loan spell at Derby County last term and played a pivotal role in Rodgers' side and is set to do so once again this campaign. 

Jerome Sinclair is also one to certainly one to keep an eye on in the Under-21's this season and it would be no surprise if he is loaned out to a Championship side over the next few weeks.

He scored an incredible solo goal against Chelsea last season for the Under-21's last term and he will likely get the chance to impress in League Cup games and in the early stages of the Europa League.
