Boro in pole to seal Ojo deal

Middlesbrough are likely to win the race to sign young Liverpool winger Sheyi Ojo on a season-long loan deal.

The 20-year-old is available for a temporary switch to the Championship and has been linked with several sides over the summer.

The winger made two senior appearances for Liverpool last season but he's slipped behind Ryan Kent in Jurgen Klopp's plans and did not feature in the Reds' recent summer games against Bayern Munich, Atletico Madrid or Athletic Bilbao.

Ojo helped England win the Under-20 World Cup this summer and remains highly-rated by the Liverpool backroom staff despite struggling to force his way into the first-team set-up.

Fulham, Aston Villa and Derby were all linked with Ojo but Boro are expected to secure his signature in the next few days.
