​Newcastle ready to launch bid for Liverpool winger Ojo

Newcastle United is preparing to launch a bid for Liverpool winger Sheyi Ojo.

According to the Sun, Magpies boss Rafa Benitez is desperate to sign the 20-year old and is prepared to splash £10m to get him.

Benitez has previously been blocked from signing the Englishman on loan and will now return for a permanent deal.

Middlesbrough had been the favourites to sign Ojo, but they are now being threatened by their local rival.

Newcastle are desperate to sign more players, having endured a frustrating transfer window so far.
