Sheyi Ojo has confirmed he is edging to closer to a return to the training pitch.
In a Twitter update earlier today, Ojo said that his scan results had been positive so he was finally ready to get back to work. He suggested he hoped to be back on the training pitch as soon as next week.

Ojo was ruled out for a month back in late August after a scan revealed he had suffered a fracture in his back. He was showing discomfort during our tour of the USA and missed the Barcelona and Mainz friendlies once we got back home.
We originally thought he only had a small problem, but it was soon revealed to be more serious (Echo).
He made 11 first-team appearances last season after being recalled from a loan spell at Wolves in January, not long after Klopp’s arrival at the club.
