Newcastle United are bidding to sign Jacob Murphy AND Sheyi Ojo.

The club remains in talks with Norwich City over a move for Murphy.

United are understood to have lodged an improved bid for the 22-year-old, having had an £8million offer turned down last week.

And manager Rafa Benitez is also looking at a second winger.

Newcastle were rebuffed in a loan bid for Liverpool's Ojo last month.

It was reported today that United were ready to bid £10million for the 20-year-old.

However, the Gazette understands that Newcastle are not looking to sign Ojo on a permanent deal this summer.
