Report: Liverpool attacker to choose between two English clubs

Newcastle United have reportedly missed out on another of their transfer targets as Liverpool winger Sheyi Ojo is instead being sent on loan to a Championship club.

The Magpies had been hopeful of signing the England age-grade youngster for around £10m, fresh on the back of his success at the Under-20s World Cup in South Korea.

Liverpool want Ojo to drop down a level on a temporary basis, however, with the Liverpool Echo reporting that it is a straight shootout between last season’s beaten playoff semi-finalists Fulham and recently-relegated Middlesbrough.

Both teams are said to have made suitable offers for the youngster and Liverpool will let him decide, but the Reds may also consider selling the midfielder if a large enough offer is tabled by Newcastle.

Ojo has netted one goal in 13 appearances for Liverpool since emerging from the club’s academy two years ago.
