Newcastle United have enquired about taking Liverpool's Sheyi Ojo on loan.
Rafa Benitez is looking to sign another winger in this summer's transfer window.
And Ojo has been identified as a potential recruit by Benitez.
Newcastle – who have already signed winger Christian Atsu on a permanent deal – have approached Benitez's former club about the possibility of taking Ojo on loan.
But Liverpool made it clear that Ojo is unlikely to be farmed out this season.
A number of other Premier League clubs are also understood to have enquired about the England Under-20 international, who has had loan spells at Wolverhampton Wanderers and Wigan Athletic.
Newcastle can only hope now that Liverpool's stance changes before the summer transfer window closes.
Ojo helped England's Under-20s win the World Cup earlier this month.
