Liverpool striker Ben Woodburn has joined English League One club Oxford United on loan for the new season.

His loan deal was confirmed earlier on Tuesday via the Premier League club’s social media account.

Welsh international Woodburn has not been able to take his Liverpool career to the next level since he burst onto the scene at the age of 16.

The 19-year-old has been at Liverpool since the age of 7.

He made his first team debut for the Reds in 2016.

Ben Woodburn has made just seven appearances in the Premier League for Liverpool since his debut three years ago.

He spent the first half of last season on loan at Sheffield United before leaving due to issues relating to form and fitness.

The young Welsh striker made just eight league appearances for Sheffield United who secured promotion to the Premier League after his exit last season.

The Blades will feature in the Premier League for the new season after a second-place finish at the end of the regular Championship season.

Sheffield United finished in second place behind champions Norwich City.

Both teams sealed automatic promotion to the Premier League and they will be joined by Aston Villa who secured promotion via the playoffs.
