German Bundesliga side FSV Mainz 05 have announced the capture of Nigerian international Taiwo Awoniyi on a season-long loan deal from Liverpool, AOIFootball.com reports.
The 21-year-old, who had a successful loan spell at Belgian club Royal Excel Mouscron, was courted by several clubs but it now appears he will be making a return to Germany having previously featured in the Bundesliga 2 with FSV Frankfurt.
“We have agreed a deal to sign Taiwo Awoniyi on loan from Liverpool for this season, subject to international clearance and a medicals,” Mainz announced on their website.
Awoniyi will most likely replace fellow Nigerian Anthony Ujah who left the club this season following his transfer to Bundesliga newcomers Union Berlin.
