Liverpool winger Sheyi Ojo is mulling over a temporary switch to Fulham or Middlesbrough on a season-long loan after the Reds accepted bids from both Championship outfits, reports the Liverpool Echo. Fulham boss Slavisa Jokanovic, is prepared to give Ojo the kind of regular first-team football Jurgen Klopp believes is vital for the 20-year-old to develop further at this time. Liverpool have also enjoyed productive discussions with Garry Monk at Middlesbrough and now Ojo has a decision to make. The youngster, who starred for the England under-20’s side that triumphed at the the Under-20s World Cup in South Korea last month, did not travel with the Liverpool first team squad ahead of their pre-season tour of Hong Kong after manager Jurgen Klopp decided a loan move away from Anfield would be of more benefit to the youngster in this coming season. The Reds have rebuffed a number of approaches to date for the England Under-20s international this summer with Jurgen Klopp keen to assess him in the early stages of pre-season. However, the initial interest from Garry Monk’s side is understood to have changed Liverpool’s tact regarding Ojo’s future with the U20 World Cup winner now likely to make a season-long switch to the Riverside Stadium or Craven Cottage, where he will continue his development with regular first team football. Newcastle were believed to have entered tentative discussions regarding a possible permanent deal for the highly rated attacker with former Reds boss Rafa Benitez keen to blood the youngster in the Premier League as the Magpies make their return to the big time after a year of absence. It is understood Newcastle United have yet to put together a package which Liverpool would accept with Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp wanting to guard against him losing the player for good. A temporary move had also been discussed with Benitez’s side but it is believed Jurgen Klopp wants to protect Ojo from going to a club where he’s likely to be viewed as a squad player, instead wanting assurances over his game time are likely to have swung the balance in Middlesbrough and Fulham’s favour. Ojo, who made his senior debut in January 2016, was limited to just two FA Cup appearances in the 2016-17 campaign – injury woes subsequently hampering his overall inclusion in Jurgen Klopp’s fold and as such the starlet is desperate to kick start his career at club level with a temporary move away from Anfield for this coming campaign.
