“I’ve got a point to prove and I’m really excited for the new challenge," Ojo told Cardiff City TV.

“Cardiff City is a massive club with great fans and great players – hopefully I can show what I can do here and fit right in.

"Wherever the ball is, I want to be involved in the game as much as possible. I’m delighted to get here in time for a full week’s training with the team ahead of the first home game this Saturday. Now it’s important that we start right."

Ojo has had six loan spells away from Liverpool including Wigan Athletic, Wolverhampton Wanderers, Fulham, Reims and Rangers.

The 23-year-old who is still hoping to earn his first cap for the Nigerian national team scored five goals for Steven Gerrard's side last season before returning to Anfield.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Raheem Sterling has come under attack for blaming Liverpool defender Joe Gomez when he conceded a penalty against Iceland during their Nations League clash.

Both players have been involved in a row while on duty for England and almost and even came to blows before a Euro 2020 qualifier back in 2019.

The Nations League game against Iceland produced two red cards and two penalties which saw the Three Lions run away with an injury-time penalty scored by Sterling.

Legit.ng had also reported that Ola Aina has reportedly accepted a season-long loan move to newly-promoted Premier League side Fulham with an option to buy for £11 million.

The Super Eagles wing-back has drawn the interest of the London-based club following his performances for Serie side Torino.

The Cottagers' boss Scott Parker is looking to add to his defensive options when the English topflight division kicks off on September 12.
