​Liverpool are set to allow young winger Sheyi Ojo to leave the club on loan to either Fulham or Middlesbrough for the 2017/17 campaign.

The 20-year-old has only ever made 13 appearances for the Reds and scored one FA Cup goal since coming into the first team set-up at Anfield in 2015, and he is now set to leave on a temporary basis to get some minutes under his belt.

Newcastle United were also credited with interest, but Rafa Benitez failed to come up with an acceptable package.

The ​Mirror reports that the Spaniard tried to take Ojo on loan in the Championship last season, but was denied the chance to do so thanks to Jurgen Klopp's reluctance to let the injury-hit youngster leave.

But now Klopp is ready to sanction a loan move for him to either Fulham or Middlesbrough in England's second tier.

Ojo is known for his dribbling and blistering pace, as was shown for the England U20s at the recent World Cup.
