Liverpool winger Sheyi Ojo has to decide between the Championship trio of Derby County, Fulham, and Middlesbrough as to where he’ll be playing his football next season, reports The Times’ Northern Football Correspondent Paul Joyce on Twitter.
The 20-year-old began his youth career at MK Dons before signing for the Premier League giants at the tender age of 14, where he has since come up through the ranks to earn his senior debut for the club in an FA Cup third round clash at Exeter City back in January 2016.
And he has since gone on to appear a further 12 times for Jurgen Klopp’s side, eight of which have come in the Premier League, yet with the Liverpool chief looking at reinforcements over the summer, Ojo is unlikely to receive regular first team football next season.
And that appears to have alerted a whole host of Championship teams to his availability for the coming season, with recent reports suggesting that Gary Rowett’s Derby have agreed a loan deal with the Reds for the 20-year-old, as have Fulham and Middlesbrough.
This leaves the England Under-20 international, part of the side that won the World Cup earlier this summer, with a big decision to make over the coming days, as to which second tier outfit to join for next season.

All three will harbour hopes of challenging for promotion, with Garry Monk’s Boro having just dropped down into the division from the Premier League, Fulham losing in the play-off semi-finals last term, and Derby having secured five successive top ten finishes in the Championship.
But which side he does indeed decide to join for the 2017/18 season very much remains to be seen.
