Liverpool loanee Ovie Ejaria produced a magnificent performance in a televised Championship game on Sunday. Playing for Reading in the Championship, Ejaria was a standout performer as his side thumped recently-relegated Cardiff City at The Madejski Stadium.
Ejaria spent a period of time on loan at Reading last season after cutting short his spell at Rangers. While he received mixed reviews from Ibrox, Reading fans firmly believe that Ejaria is a top talent.
Reading re-signed Ejaria on loan this summer and they have an obligation to make his deal permanent. That means that, despite his top performances, he has no future at Anfield unless he is brought back for a fee.
The England U21 starlet produced a commanding display in the middle of the park. His game has developed and matured since moving to Reading last January and this seems like the perfect environment for him.
With regular playing time in the Championship, Ejaria is taking his game to the next level. Perhaps one day soon, the 21-year-old will be in the Premier League showcasing his talent.
Although George Puscas stole the headlines with a stunning brace, Ejaria’s dominance did not go unnoticed. Here are some tweets from Reading fans who were left in awe after Ejaria’s latest performance.
Where did that come from? Superb across the pitch today. Defence looked strong, whilst we looked a real threat when we attacked. Ovie Ejaria absolutely ran the show. Happy Sunday. 👏🏼#ReadingFC

How on earth are we only paying £3 million for Ovie Ejaria? He is worth 5 times that. Very few players at this level with the talent he has. An absolute pleasure to watch. #readingfc

Fantastic player not sure why Liverpool don’t want him. It’s impossible to get the ball off him
