Newcastle And Middlesbrough Interested in Sheyi Ojo Loan Deal as Klopp Agrees to 'Temporary Move'

Wednesday July 19th, 2017

​Liverpool's young winger Sheyi Ojo has been granted permission by Jurgen Klopp to leave the club on a season-long loan deal, with Newcastle and Middlesbrough interested in his signature. 

It was believed that Klopp wanted to loan out one of Ojo, Harry Wilson and Ryan Kent, in order to give his young players experience to develop.

The German looks set to asses the trio during pre-season, which Ojo joined up to earlier than scheduled in order to impress the manager and break into the first team. 

However, Klopp has reportedly agreed to a 'temporary move' for Ojo in the hope of him gaining valuable experience at the top level. 

​The Times have reported that both Newcastle United and Middlesbrough are interested in signing the highly rated 20-year-old, as they look to strengthen for their new challenges next season. 

Klopp has a good relationship with both Rafa Benitez and Gary Monk, with any deal hinging on which club can offer him regular first team football. 

Ojo has impressed on loan spells and at Anfield in recent years, with his most notable achievement being part of the World Cup winning England U20 squad last month.  

Both Wilson and Kent have also attracted a lot of attention, with Celtic interested in the former and Leeds and Birmingham contesting for the latter.
