Benitez Considers Another Loan Deal For Top Youngster With No Option To Buy


Newcastle were interested in signing 20 year-old Liverpool winger Sheyi Ojo on loan in January and there’s news today that Rafa would like to sign Ojo on loan for the upcoming season in the Premier League.

Ojo made just two Liverpool appearances last season having played 11 times in the previous campaign following a successful loan spell at Wolves.

Ojo needs to play to develop his game, so Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is willing to loan the young winger out for next season to get first team playing time.

20 year-old Liverpool winger Sheyi Ojo – could come in on loan

Burnley are the other club who have registered an interest in signing the youngster, who Liverpool paid MK Dons £2M for back in 2011 when Ojo  was only 14.

At the time there were some other big clubs after the winger, with Chelsea one of the clubs that missed out on him.

Ojo was a team-mate of Freddie Woodman and Adam Armstrong in the England U20 squad that won the World U20 Championship earlier this month in South Korea.

Ojo came through the famous Liverpool Academy and made his debut for the Reds in January of last year.

He was born in Hemel Hempstead and joined the MK Dons’ Academy when he was just 10 years old back in 2007.

He showed  precocious talent at a young age and by the time he was just 13, he had already played for the Dons’ U18 side and was even training with the first team squad.

He has so far played 13 times with one goal for the Liverpool first team, but his first team appearances last term were in short supply.

After signing a new long-term contract with Liverpool in the summer of 2015 he joined Wolves on a season long loan.

He appeared 17 times for Wolves scoring two goals for them that season.

It could be advantageous to both Liverpool and Newcastle that he gets some playing time at Newcastle under the expert coaching of Rafa Benitez.

But it looks like the deal may be like the Tammy Abraham proposed loan deal  – with no option to buy the player – and that would be a disadvantage for Newcastle.

It’s much better that we get loan players in who we can sign if and when they make big gains in their game under the coaching of our manager Rafa Benitez.

We suppose it’s possible to get an option to buy Ojo in the loan deal, but very unlikely.

What do you think about this?

    Don’t get those loan deals.. Unless rafa is planning to buy a (few) really expensive player(s) and needs to save up money to pull that off..

    For crying out loud just sign a frigging player, see if Rafa can get them over this mysterious line, a lot of talk and not enough action, then again so what’s new.

    You have got to laugh though, Rafa wants all the new players in before pre season starts, at this rate we will be lucky if we get them in by the first match of the season.

    Don’t like loan deal. Giving some player experience – often at OUR expense with not only cost but maybe mistakes etc while “learning the ropes” and when he’s up and running, goes back to parent club

    According to Lee Ryder the Lejeune deal is done but he won’t come here until about July 1st – I guess there could be other deals in the same state that we don’t know about – at least I hope so.

    Why would Swans have him, and you really want to go there considering Newcastle haven’t had a good manager since Sir Bobby Robson.

    Lille have signed Ivory Coast international Nicolas Pépé from SCO Angers in a deal believed to be worth €8.5million. The 22-year-old joins the club on a five-year-contract which keeps him in Lille until 2022. 
    Pépé had a breakthrough season with Angers, making 33 Ligue 1 appearances in which he managed to notch up three goals and one assist. He was also a crucial part of the team’s impressive Coupe de France run, playing in all but one game including the crushing final defeat to Paris St-Germain.
    Pépé said: “I feel a lot of joy at having signed to LOSC. And today, I’m sure I made the right choice. The coming of Marcelo Bielsa was an important element when making my decision. I am now very excited to work with such a coach.”
    Another one bites the dust

    Wouldn’t surprise me at all if we had 2 or completed deals we now absolutely nothing about think acquah is one as the whole ” I’m 90% sure I will be playing in England adds nufc on Twitter and then oh no I’m happy in Italy” it just doesn’t add up to me.

    Florian Lejeune also done but nothing said

    However I have no idea why the club would do this at all anyone got any ideas?

    I’ve just come across this quotation from P.G. Wodehouse: –

    “He had just about enough intelligence to open his mouth when he wanted to eat, but certainly no more.”

    Could he have been referring to our Welsh WUM?

    If Liverpool, for example, are keen to lend young players out to gain Prem experience under Rafa, a world-class coach, then it’s to their advantage and we should be charging them for adding value to their player,

    I don’t want anything to do with ugly scouser scum. To be more precise, I don’t want anything to do with LFC. If we don’t even get an option to buy, the entire deal is just a big joke. Accepting Benitez as our manager was hard enough. It took me quite some time to get comfortable with it. Actually, I would compare it to hooking up with a girl that your arch enemy has been banging over and over for years; it leaves a sour taste in your mouth for quite some time, until you totally forget it.

    Welsh, do you have to keep embarrassing yourself? It’s not compulsory you know.

    Re – Carr, As someone said, some of the increasing list of duds he brought in shouldn’t have been on anyone’s list, top or bottom! Plus a scout’s job is to vet suitability and character for the English game and whether they actually want to be here. Clearly the very expensive Cabellas and Thauvins didn’t want to be.

    Re – AP Didn’t he have to sign a confidentiality clause to be compliant in accepting his 30 pieces of silver.
    So not publically going to slag us off too much.

    I think there a number of decent players already in the PL that are/could be available who we should be looking at.

    Hart – Citeh
    Ake – Chelski
    Gibson – Boro
    Walker – Spuds
    Chambers – Arsenal
    Januzaj – ManUre
    Leiva – Liverpoo
    Cleverley – Everton
    De Roon – Boro
    Townsend – Palace
    Batshuayi – Chelski
    Rodriguez – Saints

    Chronicle now saying Pardew linked with Mackems job but that their local Co-ops attempt to buy a share in the club has failed ( due to lack of interest no doubt ).
    Wouldn’t it be easier to sell the Stadium to Nissan for expansion and then have weekends with the family and shopping trips .

    If you accept that we are going to be a side in transition for two or three seasons then loans make good sense. For example, it would have been better to have Hanley in on loan than on a 5 year deal, now that we’d like to upgrade a single year later. Lazaar, Gamez, Sels and Dahl Morphy would all have been better loan signings than outright buys, now that we are looking to strengthen, as we will again this time next year.
