Sunderland land Nigerian descent Ovie Ejaria from Liverpool on loan till the end of the season.
Black Cats’ boss Chris Coleman is desperate to add to his squad as he hopes to keep his side in the Championship and he will be delighted if this deal gets over the line.
The 20-year-old attacking midfielder is expected to sign a season-long loan agreement after Jurgen Klopp gave him the green light to leave Anfield in search of regular first-team football.
A former Arsenal trainee, Ejaria has made eight senior appearances for Liverpool but has not featured in the Premier League club’s first team this season.
Coleman wanted to take Ben Woodburn on loan too, but Klopp decided to keep the young Welshman around.
