Reading look likely to add a midfielder to their ranks as youngster Ovie Ejaria heads to the club on loan from Liverpool. The 21-year-old midfielder, who plays central midfield, spent the first half of the season on loan at Steven Gerrard’s Rangers™, featuring 28 times and scoring twice.

However, it looks as if the relationship between Ejaria and Gerrard soured and he was allowed to return to Liverpool early. An U20 World Cup winner with England in 2017, Ejaria is a strong dribbler who likes to try and make things happen in the middle of the pitch.

Check out a video of one of his better performances for Rangers below.

This is Ejaria’s second spell at a relegation-threatened side, as he spent time on loan with Sunderland in their doomed season in 2016/17. Let’s hope he doesn’t repeat the same trick twice...
