Derby County have made Sheyi Ojo’s decision over who to choose for a loan move all that much harder as the player needs to choose between the Rams, Fulham and Middlesbrough.
Yesterday, the Liverpool Echo’s James Pearce reported that suitable offers from both of Fulham and Middlesbrough had been received.
Ojo has bags of potential and Jürgen Klopp believes that the best way for him to harness that this season is by joining a side temporarily that can offer him regular football to aid in his development.
Fulham boss Slavisa Jokanovic is reportedly ready to offer Ojo that kind of regular game time while Middlesbrough’s Gary Monk has had “productive talks” with Liverpool.
The latest development in the pursuit of Ojo is that Derby County are also interested and Liverpool have agreed a deal with the Rams.
This means that Ojo now needs to choose between Fulham, Middlesbrough and Derby.

Ojo is a hot commodity after his performances at the FIFA U20 World Cup in South Korea helped England win a World Cup for the first time since 1966.
The young winger’s pace, trickery on the ball and ability to beat a man have clearly earned him several suitors.
There is no doubt that Ojo will look to make the most of this season after last season’s progress was hampered by a stress fracture in his back. Whichever side the 20-year-old joins, he’ll be keen to impress Klopp and rejoin the Reds next summer.
