Liverpool waiting to hear from Reading over Ejaria fee payment

Liverpool are waiting to hear from Reading over the payment of Ovie Ejaria's fee.

The Liverpool Echo says Ejaria faces an uncertain future with Reading struggling to complete the pre-arranged transfer.

Ejaria moved to the Royals on loan last summer with a view to a permanent deal and impressed in the Championship across the campaign.

Liverpool agreed a fee of around £3.5million last year, to be paid this summer, with the Reds also picking up a 20 per cent sell-on clause.

The suspension of Championship football coupled with the lack of fans allowed into the Madejski upon the restart has hit Reading hard and reports have claimed they need ease their wage bill.

Liverpool have not called Ejaria up for their pre-season trip to Austria and instead have allowed him to continue training with the club he initially joined on loan for the second half of the 2018/19 campaign.

No decision has been taken from Liverpool's end, it is understood, as Reading continue to explore ways of making the player their own for the new season.
