Middlesbrough are in pole position to beat Newcastle to the loan signing of Liverpool winger Sheyi Ojo, according to Sky sources.
Sky Sports News HQ understands Premier League side Newcastle remain very interested in signing Ojo, but have so far been frustrated in attempting to agree terms of the deal.
Ojo, who has previously spent time on loan at Wigan and Wolves, made just two FA Cup appearances for Liverpool last season and did not feature in the Premier League.
Introducing a new Sky Sports
Football fans will get two dedicated new channels this summer as part of the biggest ever change to Sky Sports.
The 20-year-old started his career at Milton Keynes Dons before making the move to Anfield in 2011, where he linked up with the club's academy.
He made his first-team debut in the 2-2 third-round FA Cup draw with Exeter in January 2016 and subsequently scored his first goal for the club in the replay, a 3-0 victory for Liverpool.
Ojo has also represented England at U16, U17, U18, U19 and U20 level.
