Awoniyi makes declaration on Liverpool future


Taiwo Awoniyi has said he still has hopes of playing for Liverpool.

The Nigerian striker signed for the Premier League champions in 2015, but has yet to feature for them because of work permit issues.

Awoniyi has been loaned out on seven occasions and is currently at Bundesliga side Union Berlin.

The Reds continue to track the 23-year-old’s development and he remains hopeful, but concedes he may have to seek pastures new eventually.

“Liverpool will always be the priority for me and I am grateful to everyone at the club,” Awoniyi told World Soccer Magazine.

“I still don’t have the work permit to play in England.

“But with the new rules in place, and the minutes I have played in Germany this season, no one knows what the future will hold regarding the UK work permit.

“If I become eligible to play in the UK, I think I can have a say on what my decision will be.

“Things have changed remarkably with the new rules and this will certainly help me decide my next step.

“Liverpool is a very special club. They are always in contact to see how I am doing and to ensure I know that they are following my progress out here.

“It motivates me to know my parent club is following up and have my best interests at heart.

“Presently, I am still a Liverpool player until the last day of my contract, but no one knows what the future holds.

“My dream has always been to play in the Premier League and it’s why I signed for Liverpool.

“I still keep the dream alive but if leaving will facilitate it, why not? At the moment, it is impossible to say what might happen in the future.”
