Liverpool forward Sheyi Ojo could now be allowed to leave Liverpool on another loan deal this summer with no permanent buyer having emerged for him amid Cardiff City’s interest, according to Wales Online.
It has been believed that Liverpool were hoping to find a permanent buyer for Ojo this summer as he enters into the final year of his current deal at Anfield.
That comes with Cardiff having reportedly expressed an interest in taking the 24-year-old on loan for the second successive season earlier in the summer transfer window.
Ojo was an impressive performer for Cardiff during his loan spell with them last season in the Championship and he managed to register five goals and seven assists during his 41 league appearances for the Bluebirds.
That has seen Mick McCarthy’s side be keen to bring him back to the Cardiff City stadium once again ahead of the start of the new campaign.

The latest report from Wales Online reveals that Liverpool’s hopes of finding a permanent buyer for Ojo this summer have not come off with no buyer forthcoming so far this summer.
It is believed that could open the door for another potential loan move to be sanctioned by the Premier League giants with Cardiff potentially able to now capitalise on that.
This is excellent news for Cardiff and could potentially mean they are handed the chance to re-sign a player that made a real difference for them in the final third at times last season.
Ojo’s influence in terms of chance creation and potential to add vital extra goals in the final third was always going to be very difficult for McCarthy to replace.
However, it seems now that the Bluebirds might not need to do that and instead, they might be handed the chance to still have him as a key part of their side for next term.
Should the chance arise to sign Ojo on another loan deal then it is one that Cardiff surely must grab with both hands because the 24-year-old could make a major difference for them once again next season.
Having lost Harry Wilson, the Bluebirds will be needing to find other outlets of creativity in their squad and adding Ojo to that would go a long way in helping McCarthy’s side remain a strong attacking force in the English second tier.
