Newcastle United fans have given mixed reactions to reports that the club are interested in Liverpool youngster Sheyi Ojo.
Rafael Benitez is shaping his squad for the Premier League season after guiding the club to promotion from the Championship at the first time of asking.
It seems as though the Spaniard has decided to turn to his former club to help boost his options on the wing.
The Shields Gazette reports that Newcastle have made an enquiry about the 20-year-old, but Liverpool have no plans to let him leave on loan this season.
The England Under-20 international has been at the Merseyside outfit since 2011 when he joined from MK Dons.
Since making his debut in 2015, Ojo has had loan spells at Wigan Athletic and Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Last season, the winger made just two appearances for Liverpool, and both were in the FA Cup.
Newcastle’s reported interested in Ojo has got fans talking, with some believing that the club should be aiming higher, while others would be willing to give the youngster a chance.
Ojo untested in the PL,not what we need we need proven quality, Atsu is already a gamble at PL level! Is he really better than Arrons?#nufc

Prevailing opinion on Ojo is he's direct & has pace to burn but final ball his weak point.
Good option to have but we need quality!? #NUFC

So Liverpool are unlikely to loan out Ojo, on to the next target. #NUFC

Ojo, oh yes or oh no then, got to admit, not seen him play in order to comment #nufc

Ojo strikes me as a Gouffran replacement, if he rejects his new deal. Probably doesn't want a bit-part role this season #nufc

People slating Ojo because we've been linked with him, have you actually watched him? #nufc

From what I've seen of Ojo he'd be a very decent squad player and alot more reliable than Aarons. #NUFC
