New Rangers loan signing Ovie Ejaria has revealed he is delighted to have signed a new long-term contract with Liverpool before committing to a season-long loan with the Ibrox giants.
The Anfield giants confirmed Ejaria’s new four-year contract as well as announcing he would be joining Steven Gerrard’s side ahead of them returning for pre-season training on June 15th.
Ejaria insists that he wants to be an Anfield regular and will use his season at Ibrox to “keep working hard” and impress manager Jurgen Klopp.
“It’s a really great feeling. I’ve been at Liverpool for four years now and I’m just really happy to extend my stay here,” the 20-year-old told Liverpoolfc.com.
“It’s a massive club, the club’s doing really well at the moment, so it wasn’t a hard decision at all.
“I’m just going to keep working hard and see where that takes me.
“I really want to be a regular at Liverpool Football Club, a massive club, so that’s my aim.”
Football Insider verdict:
Ejaria seems a really exciting prospect and with Liverpool having given him a four-year deal, the Anfield giants obviously think he has a bright future. A season at Ibrox should work wonders for him and help the youngster win a regular place in Jurgen Klopp’s side when he returns. The chance to go north and compete for trophies and play in front of 50,000 fans every other week is massive and one that Ejaria should be excited by. The pressure to succeed will be huge on the midfielder but it will give him a fantastic platform to return to Anfield and do well. With a chance to get to know his new team-mates before the games get started, Ejaria will be hoping he can make an immediate impact at Ibrox. There is certainly going to be stiff competition in the centre of the park for the Gers, but Gerrard’s revolution at Ibrox appears to be well underway following the arrival of another new player.
