The news over the last few days has been that Championship club Middlesbrough have won the race to sign the talented 20 year-old Liverpool winger Sheyi Ojo loan for the season.
But today the Mirror have just come out with a report that Newcastle are still in with a chance of signing the talented Liverpool winger.
The key is that Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp wants his winger to get lots of playing time next season and it’s that reason why Jurgen may prefer Middlesbrough.

But the Mirror says Newcastle are fighting it out with Middlesbrough to get a player that has admired for a while now.
But Ojo would almost be guaranteed a starting place at Middlesbrough but the Mirror is reporting that playing in the Premier League with Newcastle and for Rafa Benitez is appealing to the youngster.
In fact it seems that Rafa tried his best to get Ojo on loan last season in the Championship but was not successful.
Newcastle are looking for season long loans this coming season because we are a bit short of funds – and don’t have the financial capacity of other Premier League clubs because we have been down below for a season.
Another bad consequence of being relegated from the Premier League last year.
It would be great if we can sign Sheyi Ojo and it seems the lad is keen to play Premier League football this season.
