Liverpool forward Taiwo Awoniyi has joined Bundesliga outfit Mainz 05 on loan for the entirety of the 2019-20 campaign.
The Nigerian has been with the Reds since 2015 but has not yet made a single appearance for the Premier League club.
Indeed, the 21-year-old was immediately sent on loan to FSV Frankfurt upon his arrival at Anfield, whilst he has also turned out for NEC, Royal Excel Mouscron and Gent on loan during a well-travelled career.
Liverpool are not exactly full of options in the centre-forward position at the moment.
But the decision has been made to send Awoniyi on loan to Mainz, who finished 12th in the Bundesliga last season.
The Merseyside club’s fans have been on social media offering their views on the confirmed exit.
And to be honest, not too many seem bothered that the Nigeria Under-23 international has moved on.
