Ben Woodburn joins on loan from Liverpool

U's sign Wales international on season-long loan

30 July 2019

Forward Ben Woodburn joins the U’s on a season-long loan from Liverpool.

Capable of playing either as a winger or a number 10, the 19-year-old joins the U’s from the Premier League side after spending time at Sheffield United last season.

The Welsh international, who has made ten appearances for the senior national side, told iFollow:

"I spoke to Karl and he has done well with previous younger players in the past. Obviously I know Cam Brannagan, so I think it is a good fit for me in my career at this moment in time. I think it's a stepping stone that I need to push on. It's a great league, it's a tough league and I've just got to show what I can do in these games and hopefully show my quality."

Head Coach Karl Robinson said:

"Ben is a talented lad who we are excited to bring into the building for the season. He has a lot of experience for his age at Liverpool and with the Welsh national team so we are absolutely delighted to bring in a player of his quality and are looking forward to being a part of his development. We'd like to extend our thanks to Jurgen Klopp, Julian and Ben's agent for trusting us and having the faith to continue his development at a League One football club."
