English giants Liverpool FC have sent out Nigeria youth international Taiwo Awoniyi on another season-long loan deal.

The 19-year-old striker has joined Belgian First Division A side Royal Excel Mouscron ahead of the 2017/18 season.

Awoniyi spent the last two campaigns with German side FSV Frankfurt and Dutch outfit N.E.C on loan from the Reds.

Liverpool confirmed on their official website that the Nigeria Under-23 star had sealed his move to Mouscron.

A club statement read: "Taiwo Awoniyi will spend the duration of the 2017-18 season on loan at Royal Excel Mouscron.

"The striker, who signed for Liverpool in August 2015, joins up with the Belgian side following the beginning of their league campaign on Sunday.

"Awoniyi spent last term with NEC Nijmegen, for whom he scored three goals, having previously embarked on a loan stay at FSV Frankfurt in Germany."

The marksman made 18 appearances in the Dutch Eredivisie last season for N.E.C and he netted twice in the process.
