There is a report in the Sun today that Liverpool have become angered by Newcastle’s approach for their 20-year-old winger Sheyi Ojo and Newcastle have now been ruled out of taking him on loan for the season.
The only way Newcastle can now sign him is permanently for a fee of £10 but then Liverpool would have a buyback clause in the contract – that’s in case Rafa makes him into a great player and then Liverpool would want him back.
It seems that the deal is all in the favor of the Reds.
The Sun reports that Liverpool have become angry at earlier efforts by Newcastle to sign the player and we have been essentially banned by the Reds of taking him on loan for the season.
And as we have already reported Fulham, Middlesbrough and Derby County are all willing to take the England under-20 on a temporary loan for the season.
Maybe now is the time to move on and look at other targets and the chase for Sheyi Ojo has not been successful. but of course, we know Rafa rates the youngster highly and would love to buy the lad permanent for Newcastle.
But of course, we already know that Rafa rates this youngster highly and would love to buy the lad permanently for Newcastle.
But we doubt that Rafa would buy him with a buy-back clause in his contract.
We’d now be very surprised if Ojo turns up at Newcastle this summer either on loan or via a permanent deal.
What do you think about this situation?
