Liverpool starlet Sheyi Ojo could be set for another loan spell in the Championship with Fulham agreeing on a deal to take the winger for the 2017/18 season.

Reports had previously stated that Jurgen Klopp would keep the England Under-20 international among his first team squad for this campaign. However, according to Sky Sports, this is not the case and now Ojo must choose between Fulham and Middlesbrough, who have also made an offer.

The winger has had previous spells in England's second tier with both Wolves and Wigan Athletic and made just two appearances for Liverpool last season, both coming in the Reds' FA Cup run.

Ojo did not feature in the Premier League and his desire to play in the top flight may see him prefer a switch to Rafa Benitez's Newcastle, who were promoted last campaign.

However, other ​reports suggest the Magpies are also interested in taking Ojo whether on on a permanent or loan basis - but have yet to make a suitable offer, and the young winger may end up with a temporary move to Fulham for game time.

Ojo made his debut for the Reds back in January 2016 when Klopp's side were held to a 2-2 draw by Exeter in the FA Cup.


The athletic winger notched his first senior goal in the replay with Liverpool coming out 3-0 winners.

The 20-year-old is seen as one of the club's finest academy products after joining from MK Dons in 2011, but it seems for the moment that he is behind Welsh starlet Ben Woodburn in Klopp's pecking order of emerging talents and may instead be forced to find game time away from Anfield in the near future.
