Ben Woodburn has returned to Liverpool from Sheffield United for treatment on an ankle injury.

The forward, currently on-loan with the Blades, suffered the damage during a training session and will now be assessed at Melwood.

It is not yet clear how long Woodburn will be out for, however the blow comes as the latest setback in a so-far disappointing season.

The 19-year-old has struggled to break into the starting XI at Bramall Lane as the Blades continue to exceed expectations in the Championship.

He has made just two starts in all competitions since joining on a season-long loan during the summer, while appearing as a substitute a further six times.

Meanwhile, Liverpool midfielder Ovie Ejaria recently cut short his season-long loan with Rangers.

Both clubs agreed to terminate his loan spell with immediate effect after he failed to settle in Glasgow.

It comes after Gers boss Steven Gerrard dropped Ejaria from the travelling squad for the Europa League defeat to Rapid Vienna, claiming the 21-year-old ‘didn’t seem in the right frame of mind’.

A Rangers statement read: “The midfield player has not settled in Scotland and wishes to continue his career back with his parent club.

“Rangers thanks him for his commitment and efforts. Everyone at the club wishes him well for his future.”
