The former Golden Eaglets star joined Liverpool from Imperial Academy in 2015 but has not been able to play for the Reds due to work permit issues.

He has spent time on loan at German second division outfit FSV Frankfurt, Dutch club NEC Nijmegen and Belgian pair Mouscron and Gent as well as Bundesliga side Mainz.
