Liverpool have confirmed their 2nd loan of the day with Nigerian striker Taiwyo Awoniyi heading out on loan to FSV Mainz 05, this follows the earlier move of Liam Millar to Kilmarnock.

This will be the 6th loan of Awoniyi’s career since joining Liverpool in 2015 after previous spells with Frankfurt, NEC Nijmegen, Royal Excel Mouscron (twice) and KAA Gent.

Due to work permit issues he has not yet played for Liverpool and it is unlikely he will get a work permit but it is hoped that if he performs in the Bundesliga that he could get a call up to the Nigerian squad which would enhance his chances of getting a work permit.
