​Middlesbrough set to beat Newcastle to Liverpool speedster Ojo

Rafa Benitez's frustrating transfer market has continued, with Liverpool youngster Sheyi Ojo set to join Middlesbrough.

The 20-year winger has been a target for the Newcastle United manager for months, but Sky Sports claims that Ojo is close to signing a loan deal with the Magpies' north-east rivals.

Ojo has made 11 total appearances for the Liverpool first team, however, he only managed two F.A Cup outings for the Reds last season.

The Englishman is keen to get some regular first team experience, with a spot in Jurgen Klopp's side unlikely this season.
