Huddersfield, Reading and Forest all interested in Liverpool’s Ojo

A trio of Championship clubs are reportedly interested in signing Liverpool winger Sheyi Ojo.

Goal.com reports that Reading, Huddersfield Town and Nottingham Forest are all interested in the 23-year-old.

Ojo is permitted to depart Anfield this summer, either permanently or on loan, the report adds.

He spent last season on loan at Scottish giants Rangers, and has had spells in the Championship before with both Wolves and Wigan Athletic.

Downing’s Blackburn contract offer still not signed

Stewart Downing is yet to sign a new contract which has been offered to him by Blackburn Rovers.

The Lancashire Telegraph reports that the 36-year-old is still yet to put pen to paper on the fresh terms offered to him by the Ewood Park side.

He is a free agent and can speak to other clubs about a move elsewhere.

Downing was also not part of an extended group which returned to pre-season training after a break of more than three weeks.
