How would you translate the following sentence using "demek (denilmek)" or "

söylemek (söylenmek)" if possible?

 

1) I was told that the children would come tomorrow.

2a) It is said that the children will arrive tomorrow.

2b) The children are said to arrive tomorrow.

 

Thanks a lot for your help in advance!

1. Bana yarin çocuklar gelece─čini söylendi.

2. Yarin çocuklar gelece─čini söyleniyor.

 

I think there is no difference between 2a and 2b in Turkish. Hopefully someone can double-check this.
