On loan Cardiff City pair Harry Wilson and Sheyi Ojo could be sold by parent club Liverpool during the summer transfer window, a report from The Athletic has revealed.
Both Wilson and Ojo are graduates of Liverpool’s youth setup, but have struggled to really establish themselves in the first-team at Anfield.
The duo have been had several loan spells away from the Merseyside club in the search of regular first-team football, with their latest one taking them to Cardiff during last summer’s transfer window.
Now it seems as though the pair could both be set for longer term departures from Anfield when the transfer window reopens this summer, with this latest report claiming that the defending Premier League champions could be set to sell the pair at the end of this season.
So far, Wilson has scored three goals and provided six assists in 21 appearances in all competitions for Cardiff this season.
Ojo meanwhile, has made a total of 28 appearances for the Bluebirds, scoring four goals and supplying six assists in that time.
As things stand, both Wilson and Ojo have two-and-a-half years remaining on their contracts at Liverpool, securing their futures at the club until the end of the 2022/23 season.
In fairness, this is probably the right decision for Liverpool to make.
It is hard to see either Wilson or Ojo breaking into Liverpool’s first-team anytime soon, given the quality there currently is on show at Anfield.
As a result, with both getting to the stage of their careers where they will be looking to really establish themselves, the stability and certainty of a permanent move would probably be a benefit for them.
Indeed, given the impact they have made in the Welsh capital this season, you do feel as though Cardiff could be interested in permanent deals for the pair, although the contract situation at Liverpool means the Premier League side are in a strong position to negotiate any offers that come in for them.
