The Magpies, who have been quiet in the summer window so far, were thought to be interested in a season-long loan deal for the 20-year-old winger but that was dismissed by the Merseysiders.

Now Newcastle are prepared to splash the cash on the promising wide man, with manager Rafa Benitez determined to get new faces on board ahead of the club's return to Premier League action.

Reports have suggested Newcastle are willing to spend £10m on Ojo and it's thought the player has been left off Liverpool’s pre-season trip to Asia to discuss the move to the north east.
