Sheyi Ojo must decide whether to move to Derby, Fulham or Middlesbrough after all three club’s struck deals with Liverpool to take the winger on a season-long-loan.

It was widely expected that Ojo would end up at either Middlesbrough or Newcastle for the season, with both clubs keen to take the 20-year-old on loan.

It emerged on Tuesday that Fulham had entered the race to sign Ojo, with the Cottagers having a loan offer accepted by Liverpool.

Paul Joyce has now broken the news that Derby have also come to an agreement with the Reds and Middlesbrough also have a deal in place. Newcastle have not yet submitted an acceptable offer.

There were some reports at the end of last week that Newcastle could look at a potential £10m permanent deal for Ojo, but that was quickly denied by reporters in the North East.

Newcastle are set to add a winger with Jacob Murphy of Norwich set to sign in a deal worth £12.5m. The club are, however, said to be interested in taking Ojo too.

It may be that Jürgen Klopp looks to send out Ojo to the club where he will play the most regular football, regardless of the league.

Any deal should go through soon, with the youngster not selected for Liverpool’s trip to Hong Kong in the expectation that he will complete a loan move soon.
