Liverpool winger Sheyi Ojo is having medical at Fulham ahead of a season-long loan move, according to Sky sources.

The 20-year-old is understood to have had the chance to join the Cottagers, Middlesbrough or Newcastle after the clubs agreed loan terms with the Reds.

The player appears to have opted for Fulham, who are working hard to bring new players over the line before the September 1 transfer deadline.

The Whites are chasing one of two left-back targets - Cardiff's Joe Bennett and Bordeaux's Maxime Poundje - as well as a new striker to compete with Aboubakar Kamara.

They also want Ojo, who has previously spent time on loan at Wigan and Wolves, who made just two FA Cup appearances for Liverpool last season and did not feature in the Premier League.

He started his career at Milton Keynes Dons before making the move to Anfield in 2011, where he linked up with the club's academy and made his first-team debut in the 2-2 third-round FA Cup draw with Exeter in January 2016.
