Oluwaseyi "Sheyi" Ojo (born 19 June 1997) is an English footballer who plays as an attacking midfielder for Wolves, on loan from Liverpool.

Liverpool CareerEdit

On 17 November 2011, Liverpool agreed to sign highly-rated teenager Sheyi Ojo from MK Dons for an undisclosed fee- reported to be in the region of £1-2,000,000. Liverpool had to beat off major competition from Chelsea to sign the 14 year old, who was thought to be close to breaking into the first team squad at the MK Dons. He made one appearance for the Under 18s in his first season with Liverpool, playing mostly for the Under 16 side instead- he also impressed on England duty with their Under 16s side during the season.

On 3 November 2012, Ojo- in only his second start for the Under 18s- scored his first goal for the side in a 4-2 victory over Wolves. Ojo impressed throughout and also provided the assist for Jerome Sinclair to score the opening goal of the match. Ojo racked up 11 appearances for the U18s during the season, scoring two goals. In the 2013-14 season, Ojo scored five goals in 29 appearances as he starred for the U18s. He also debuted for the U21s in their season.

Following an impressive early season campaign for the U21s, on 26 December 2014, Ojo was given a place on the bench for the first team match away to Burnley. After a few more appearances on the bench, Ojo transferred to Championship side Wigan Athletic on loan until the end of the season on 2 February 2015.

Ojo returned from his loan spell and played a part in the Reds pre-season. On 2 August 2015, he scored his first senior goal, the winner in a 2-1 win at Swindon. Ojo chested down a long ball from Kolo Toure before striking it from the edge of the area. On loan Liverpool goalkeeper Lawrence Vigouroux's hand was not strong enough and he allowed it into the net. Just two days later however, Ojo was sent out on loan to Championship side Wolves for the whole of the 2015-16 season.
