​Liverpool loanee Ejaria coping well at Sunderland confirms Coleman

Liverpool youngster Ovie Ejaria is enjoying a very good loan spell at Sunderland, despite the team's struggles.

While Sunderland are not in the best form, Ejaria is impressing manager Chris Coleman during his loan spell. The youngster will be hoping it gives him a springboard to get closer to the first team next season.

"Ovie's come to us with a little problem with his thigh. He's played the first few games then missed a couple. He's a good player," Coleman said to the Chronicle Live.

"It's hard for him because he's come out of U23 football playing for Liverpool in games where they dominate and come to us, bottom of a brutal league, which is very physical, but he's coped very well. He's very brave in possession.

"He's done well but there's more to come from him. I think he'll get better and better with the more games he plays but he's a good player."
