Liverpool have tied highly-rated youngster Sheyi Ojo down to a long-term contract, and sent him on loan to Wolverhampton Wanderers for the 2015-16 season.
The 18-year-old winger made 11 appearances during a loan spell at Wigan Athletic last term and will return to the Championship to gain more first-team experience.

“It’s a great feeling,” Ojo told Wolves’s official website. “I’m looking forward to the upcoming season. Hopefully we can have a good year and push for promotion.
“It’s a really good club. It’s got great facilities. All of the players are nice, they have welcomed me to the club and the staff are brilliant as well.
“Everything’s going well, I’m just looking forward to starting the season at the weekend.”
Ojo scored the winning goal in Liverpool’s 2-1 friendly victory over Swindon Town on Sunday, and went on their pre-season tour this summer, but is yet to make his competitive debut for the senior side.
And his chances would have been few and far between this campaign, with Brendan Rodgers having invested in attacking talents such as Roberto Firmino, Danny Ings and Christian Benteke.
