Taiwo Awoniyi: Liverpool to end Nigerian football star's loan deal with Mainz

- Taiwo Awoniyi could leave German League side Mainz 05 this transfer window

- The Nigerian football star has not enjoyed enough playing time in the Bundesliga

- Awoniyi has made just six appearances so far and that seems unsatisfactory for the Reds chiefs

Liverpool are reportedly planning to terminate Taiwo Awoniyi's loan deal with German League side Mainz 05 this month.

The 22-year-old has made just six appearances for the Bundesliga strugglers so far this campaign and the Premier League outfit seems unhappy with the process.

According to Goal.com, Awoniyi's game time at the club suffered a major set back since the return of their main striker Jean-Philippe Mateta from injury.

And Liverpool fear the Nigerian will maintain his bench-warming role with the French star's return this winter.

The Reds have a clause to help them terminate the loan deal if they want, and they will only allow their player to remain at the club if they get assurances for more playing time.
