Lots of Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter to react after it was revealed on the club’s official website that Ovie Ejaria had joined Reading on a season-long loan deal.
The move will be made permanent next summer for a set sum of £3m which could potentially rise to £3.5m, as reported by The Athletic’s James Pearce.
Ejaria returns to the Madejski Stadium having made 16 appearances for the Royals in the second half of last season, after a loan spell at Rangers under Steven Gerrard was terminated following the first half of the campaign.
The 21-year-old was given his debut by Jürgen Klopp in a League Cup tie against Derby County in September 2016, and went on to make two Premier League appearances for the Reds before heading to Ibrox.
Let’s take a look at how the Liverpool fans on Twitter reacted to the news of the youngster’s departure…
I’m not angry. I’m just disappointed

Shame he never reached his potential at us but hopefully this move can revive him and get going once more

Decent deal. He was never going to break into the first team imo

That 3.5’s going to an expensive gift for John Henry’s Mrs.

Unlucky the timing of his first injury as he looked like a quality player tbh. Good luck to him
