Woodburn, 22, burst onto the scene as a teenager, scoring against Leeds in the League Cup back in 2016.

He would go on to make 11 appearances for the Reds, in between loan spells at Sheffield United, Oxford, Blackpool and most recently Hearts.

Academy graduate Ojo, 24, made 13 first-team outings for Liverpool during the 2015-16 and 2016-17 seasons.

The winger has since been on SEVEN loans away from Anfield – including stints with Fulham, Rangers and most recently Millwall.
