Reading newcastle willing to offer 10 million for Ojo! Anyone else heard this?

I read this somewhere earlier but think it unlikely. A loan maybe but seems illogical to sell.

{Ed001's Note - the lad doesn't see a future for himself at Liverpool, he would prefer a permanent move.}

It would be a good move for him if he'd be playing week in week out. I'm hoping it doesn't happen though.

The article said Newcastle considering permanent transfer as they keep getting rejected for a loan deal.

ed001 would a 'buy back clause' (or similar) be an option if he did go on a perm move?

{Ed001's Note - no idea.}

I doubt Newcastle would have the same interest if there was a buy-back clause. Not at £10m anyway.

I would snap their hands off if they offered £10m.

Why buy solanke and sell ojo? Seems mad to me. The lad (ojo) could become one of world's best. Not surprising he wants to move with solanke coming in ahead of him in pecking order. We are going to regret selling him one day.

{Ed025's Note - "could become one of the worlds best"??,and i could be elected the next pope... come on mate get a grip will you..

I'm with EpicPotato from Ojo's perspective somewhere where he plays and develops is good but he has a lot of talent and it would be mad to let him go.

We've had several academy players that were being touted as future stars - Ojo and Branagan were especially well spoken of 2 summers ago. Why are they failing, so far, to convert their potential, Eds?

{Ed025's Note - it can be a number of factors rob, the money and fame go to some of their heads, some just stagnate and some find distractions like women, booze etc get in the way..it was women and booze with me mate.. :)

Superred-There is more chance of me winning a big duck contest in the NBA than Ojo becoming one of the worlds best!
Also Solanke plays in a different position to him and looks a better talent, Ojo couldn't make the u20s starting line up!

let's have it right, I'd have loved to see Ojo succeed as much as anyone, fact is he hasn't shown enough and we can ill afford him the opportunity to grow in the 1st team next season. The lad will get every opportunity at a lesser club and he should go for it. Fair play to him.

Am i missing something with Ojo? I saw him a few times at Wolves and saw very little to get excited about.

Ojo was rated very highly a couple years back. His injury issues have set him back. I still like to think he could make it but he has to want to. He looked very tentative when he first came back from injury but was starting to push on towards the end of the season

And I doubt his wanting to leave has anything to do with Solanke but probably more to do with the club going for Brandt.

Ojo is class. He's effortless, that's how you can tell how good he is. Like Digger, he just glides around the pitch.
If you doubt his ability, look at how he mugged Stoke defenders in the premier league in 2015/ 16.
He had injuries last season.

It would be more of a mistake to lose Ojo than it was to lose Suso.

Difficult for him to perform and earn a chance while out injured for so long. Likewise with England under 20s you could argue he did well to make the squad considering how little he'd played with injury. People are quick to shoot down the youngsters.

Who did you play for ed025.

{Ed025's Note - i wish i could say someone big ravinoge, but truth is the highest i played was for willaston in the west cheshire league mate..

Booze and women, potent ingredients. So, do you think Ojo could have done more?

We read last year Barcelona were looking at Branagan, which if true speaks volumes for the boy, so how is he progressing and do you see him breaking through to the first team? At 21 he seems to have been overlooked with all the players that have come in and that we continue to be looking at. Is he really as good we thought?

Thanks for the responses.

Brannagan had an injury ravaged season last year so didn't kick on as hoped. Hopefully his career will get back on track this year

And ed25 if you do go to confession, don't tell them you are a blues fan or you will never get out.

{Ed025's Note - we are actually gods own club phil...have you ever seen mary in a red dress mate?.. :)

To me ojo is like those stereotypical teenage boys who is just physically bigger stronger and faster than his peers. Then they starts playing with adults and they are found wanting. To me this is a Massive factor as to why it is difficult for younger players to break through into the first team.
because for so many of them it takes a long time for the mental side of the game to catch up to their physical side. And then ultimately clubs are always looking to bring in new players either, the same age or older, who can bring a more well rounded version of what they have currently EG solanke v OJ.

When I say "could become one of world's best" I'm not saying this season and I'm not talking messi/ Ronaldo. But he could easily become a free scoring player in both premier league and champions league. He has pure class. Selling him is madness and I don't know why he doesn't get more games. In five years I would bet anything he is playing regularly in one of top leagues in Europe and scoring.
