Agent: Awoniyi future in Reds’ hands

Taiwo Awoniyi's agent is unsure where the Nigerian forward will be playing next season, having returned to Liverpool after a loan spell with FSV Frankfurt.

The 18-year-old was signed by former Reds boss Brendan Rodgers in August last year, but was immediately loaned out to the Bornheimer after failing to secure a work permit to play in England.

Awoniyi made 13 league appearances for the Hesse outfit last term, scoring just once as they suffered relegation from the second tier of German football, and has since returned to Anfield during the off-season.

However, the Nigeria Under-23 international still does not have the necessary paperwork to turn out for Jurgen Klopp's side and his representative, Seyi Olofinjana, says the Merseysiders will decide his future.

Asked whether the teenager will be on the move again soon, Olofinjana told All Nigeria Soccer: "You might need to speak with Liverpool regarding Taiwo. He is their player for now."
