Ovie Ejaria has been turning heads at Reading this season.

The 22-year-old joined on a season-long loan from Liverpool at the start of the season, with the obligation to buy come this summer. He’s played in 32 of Reading’s 37 Championship games so far this season, scoring three and creating four.

He’d spent the second-half of last season on-loan at the club, and whilst he didn’t really light up the Madejski, Jose Gomes was keen to bring him back for a full season with the Royals.

Fans love Ejaria – he’s one of the trickiest players in the league, and leaves defenders in knots with his footwork and physical presence. But with only seven goal involvements in the Championship so far, should fans have expected a bit more from the Liverpool man?

At which club did Michael Morrison start his career?

Yes, he’s got the tricks and the flicks, and all the showman qualities, but he’s not really given enough end product, and Reading have subsequently sat in the bottom-half of the table for much of the campaign.

Nevertheless, a player who possess his qualities at only 22-years-old is bound to have a big future in the game.

He’s made significant progress in terms of his development this season and should he sign permanently for Reading – which has seemed all but confirmed throughout the season – then expect him to really kick-on next time round.

It’s always difficult for a loan-player to settle but if the Madejski were his permanent residence, then Ejaria can look to settle down, and become the player that he promises to be.

Here we take a look at what Reading fans, and others, have been saying about Ejaria this season:
