CHAIRMAN Lee Power was last night locked in talks to bring Liverpool striker Michael Ngoo to Swindon on loan.

With Nile Ranger poised to leave, Town are keen to fill the void with Ngoo.

At the time of going to press yesterday, Power was in the north west attempting to negotiate a short-term deal for the 21-year-old.

Ngoo, signed by Liverpool from Southend in 2009, has scored five senior goals in 23 appearances spread over loan stints with Hearts and Yeovil, but has yet to turn out for his parent club.

The towering centre forward enjoyed a prolific spell in the Liverpool under-18 side during the 2010/11 season, where he finished as the club’s second top scorer with 15 goals.

Since then he has been selected as part of the England squad for the Under 20 World Cup in Columbia in 2011.

In January last year Ngoo was sent out on loan to Scottish Premier League outfit Hearts where he made 16 appearances, scoring five goals.

Last summer he was given the chance in the Championship by joining Yeovil on a season-long deal, but was sent back to Anfield just three months into his stay at Huish Park where he made seven appearances, five as a substitute but failed to score.
