Ojo Set To Join Cardiff City On Three-Year Deal

The 25 year-old will join on a free after leaving Liverpool this summer at the end of his contract.

Ojo enjoyed a successful loan spell at Cardiff during the 2020/21 season, making 42 appearances and scoring five times and creating seven goals.

That was one of a number of temporary spells he had while at Liverpool who he made 13 appearances for in total after joining the Anfield club aged 14 from MK Dons.

Ojo joined MK Dons’ academy when he was 10 years old. By the age of 13, he had played for the Dons’ U18 side and was training with the first team squad.

During his time at the club, Ojo became the first MK Dons trainee to receive an international cap at youth level.

On 11 November 2011, Liverpool beat off competition from a host of Europe’s top clubs including a multimillion-pound offer from Chelsea to sign Ojo, then 14, for an undisclosed fee believed to be in the region of £2 million.

In April 2014, Ojo was joint top scorer alongside fellow Liverpool player Harry Wilson in the prestigious U17 Future Cup.

Having made a number of appearances on Liverpool’s bench over the festive period, Ojo joined Wigan Athletic on loan on 2 February 2015.

Five days later, he made his professional debut coming on as a 59th-minute substitute for Wigan in a Championship match against AFC Bournemouth, with Wigan naming Ojo as their Man of the Match after he had a positive impact on the game.

He was recalled by Liverpool on 7 January 2016. The next day, Ojo made his competitive first-team debut for Liverpool, as a substitute in the FA Cup Third Round tie against Exeter City that ended in a 2–2 draw.

He scored his first competitive goal for Liverpool in the replay against Exeter on 20 January; his goal was the second in a 3–0 victory.

Ojo made his Premier League debut on 20 March 2016, replacing Joe Allen in the 87th minute in a 3–2 loss away to Southampton at St Mary’s Stadium.

      Don’t mind them my guy. The big clubs are there for Nigerian players to just stroll into. Instead they go to average clubs. SYH.

       
  • Is Seyi Ojo a Nigerian player? You need to ask yourself that question first. Having a Nigerian name does not equates to being an SE player.
    He is British and played for England under age teams from u16 to u21

    LMFAO!

    Oga it seems you work for csn…

    Otherwise I see no reason why I should be blocked immediately from replying you..

    You thought I was gonna blast you? Lol.. No am just gonna clearify what I mean by my statement there

     
    • No, how can i block you and i don’t work for CSN, I am just a football fan just as you are and to be realistic Seyi is not Nigerian, yes he may want to play for SE, but currently he is British. And until there is any nationality change. Mr Ojo remains British.

    This Seyi Ojo should have gone to Chelsea or Manchester City. Nigeria eligible players don’t seem to aim higher. Where there is Barcelona, Real Madrid and Tottenham Hotspur, this Ojo is going to the championship. SMH.

      It’s something that has to do with Lineage, Africans practice lots of fetishism and term it tradition, forgetting that tradition doesn’t bring anything good in the long run, and the offspring that doesn’t break out of this bracket always tends to have limitations in life. I’m speaking from a perspective that only a few will understand. Wonder why once a player commits to African country his market value drops drastically except for a few like Salah. Players like Alaba who didn’t commit to their African heritage have seen out a career high achievement. That aside the moment every federation starts practicing the right development void of corruption only then will it be hard for the devil to hinder the progress of the African Pride.
