quick re-brief of our targets:
Fernando Pacheco - becoming more likely, yet it is getting even quieter as there isn't much notice to this, and it is claimed to be on a loan until the end of the season.
Juan Muniz - all rounded midfielder who can easily give Tomlin a run for his place and is very competitive
Niguez - basically a full on, but younger, version of Whitehead (who is way past his peak in my opinion)

Our right back solution has been resurrected by the arrival of Tomas Kalas so there won't be any more arrivals for the Right back spot, however, two new targets who are under the radar from media have been linked with Boro. These are Tom Cairney who has been mentioned now and again, but nothing has went ahead just yet ( ). The second target is a versatile centre back who can also play in midfield, his name is Marios Oikonomou and he is only 22 years old, so has time to improve even further. He has played for Greece Under 21s and has a good relationship with Dimi Konstantopolous, who we could use to persuade Oikonomou to come to Middlesbrough.

Extra: Mark Hughes has let Robert Huth go out on loan to a Championship club. Watford are winning the race at the moment, but 2 other Football League clubs are interested.

14 Jan 2015 15:21:52
Fernando Pacheco on a loan until the end of the season may have become even more quiet, but it is still going on and is looking increasingly likely as Konstantopolous turns 37, we have Mejias as our back up at the moment and Karanka is concerned that if we get promoted, how will they cope?.

I know we still have Ripley, but he still needs experience, as that is beneficial to both him and the club, look at how Reach and Gibson turned out, an influential duo who play a significant part in Karanka's future plans.

Niguez (also known as Jony) is a younger kind of version of Whitehead is way past his peak, whereas Muniz is a more all-rounded midfielder.

14 Jan 2015 15:24:07
My mate from whom I get my information was here and I put the above names to him. Pacheco remains a target but Ivan Perez Munoz advises that Mejias outshone Pacheco at Madrid, my friend wouldn't be surprised if we swooped for a more experienced goalie whilst he knows Aitor to be an admirer of Muniz and Niguez but not interested in signing either yet (I must stress the yet apparently). He has heard nothing of Cairney but says it could be possible. There is no interest in Oikonomou though my friend is an admirer of his, Karanka has no awareness of the player. Fran Merida deal could be back on after Milos Veljkovic's loan extension failed.

15 Jan 2015 07:08:38
Fernando Pacheco is a younger keeper than Mejias, and Mejias hasn't really proven himself to be an adequate keeper who will be able to replace Konstantopolous in the near future.

Oikonomou is a 22 year old central defender who is well known by Dimi Konstantopolous as they have played in the Greece National acedemy side together, (Oikonomou was just 16 then).

Cairney is a target that is going under the radar as there has been hardly, or no mention at all, yet it is a likely possibility he could arrive in Teesside considering Veljkovic has went back to Spurs, and Whitehead seemingly past his peak and seems to be more fitted to our right back role, thus leaving just Clayton, Leadbitter and our young future prospect Bryn Morris as our only Centre midfielders. Muniz and Niguez are also potential targets to arrive in teesside.

Extra: I've been reading the Evening Gazette and it is suggested that an Emerson-type of midfielder is set to arrive on Teesside. Anyone got any idea who this could be?

Oikonomou and Dimi did not play together in the Greek youth teams because Dimi would have been ineligible to do so six years ago as he would have been 31. Furthermore, Cairney is not someone who the club have expressed an interest in but I personally would love to see him at the Riverside. Muniz and Niguez cannot be called targets yet as Boro have no interest in actually signing them, but Karanka does admire the players. As for the Emerson article in the gazette you have misunderstood. If Pacheco does come in it will be if/when Mejias departs so Pacheco can be second choice goalkeeper

I meant like player/coach type, you know what I mean, sorry about that little mix up.
And no I have not misunderstood the Emerson article as Karanka is looking for a loanee who can replace Milos Veljkovic.
I think everyone would love Tom Cairney at the Riverside! He is a good player and even though it is not out with the media, Karanka isn't impressed with Mejias, so is considering whether it'll be more beneficial to send him out on loan to free up wages or to sell him permanently to free the transfer budget up as well as the wages. What would you do if you were Karanka?

18 Jan 2015 16:35:23
Oh I thought you meant that their was some kind of friendship between the two Greeks. In fact, it's quite probable that the two have never met. The Emerson article was in no way a reference to any potential incomer, it was just to remember a fantastic player. Cairney, ideal signing. Karanka has said he will not sign a new first choice goalkeeper until the summer, but if whether Mejias is sold or loaned out, Pacheco would be the replacement second choice. If I were Karanka I'd pack the poor lad back of to Spain where he is more comfortable

12 Jan 2015 19:36:17
Rotherham forward Jonson Clarke Harris will sign for Millwall, possibly in a straight swap for defender Mark Beevers

13 Jan 2015 19:23:51
This is not true and as for beevers he is out for up to 3 weeks so ant going anywhere

12 Jan 2015 15:23:17
Guiseleys oli Johnson to Rotherham

09 Jan 2015 13:08:10
Millwall will attempt to rescue the deal to bring Rotherham Star player Ben Pringle to the den after the deal collapsed last night after the South London club had had a bid of £175,000 accepted by the Yorkshire side. The lions had offered more money but the winger wanted a longer deal and the lions could be willing to add another year to the deal to push the deal through to get there man

09 Jan 2015 20:54:46
Millwall CEO Andy Ambler is to meet with with Ben Pringle to discuss another contract offer to gt the Winger to sign for the lions before the end of the transfer window

10 Jan 2015 04:30:21
Think millwall should buy amr zaki only 30 lol

10 Jan 2015 10:56:21
Wolves or Preston likely destinations, the player does not fancy London refused all contract offers at RUFC so will be sold this window

12 Jan 2015 01:03:27
Being a Miller, I don't care where he goes, just as long as he goes!, one thing he aint, is a loss! so please take him anybody :)

07 Jan 2015 19:29:05
Rotherham have had a bid of around 200k accepted by Millwall for defender Mark Beevers. The deal is expected to be completed by the end of the week

08 Jan 2015 18:45:39
No chance. He will cost at least 500k

That is such a lie. Wouldn't let him go to a club who is battling for survival like us. Easily worth 1 mil

21 Dec 2014 16:04:24
Lewis Macleod set to join rotherham for a 1mill fee. if this is true I hope he is good :)

We need a goalscorer not another central midfielder

We need to sell pringle too and get a proper left winger :)

{Ed003's Note - never realised you was a Rotherham fan Sail your doing ok in the correct score comp btw :) }

Macleod joining brentford for 1 million

26 Nov 2014 06:56:42
Emmanuel Ledesma has joined Rotherham United on loan until the end of the season. Good riddance say I

27 Nov 2014 13:07:05
This happened last Friday 21st Nov and is not new news. A good player but too much of an individual for the Boro.
Wish him well

22 Oct 2014 12:39:20
Rotherham trying to offload Jordan Bowery and Matt Derbyshire already

Premature to say the least - all Rotherham players are measured by performances only - so they all know that SE will "manage players out" - but this rumour is malicious garbage!

11 Sep 2014 18:46:00
Sheffield United and Rotherham United are hoping to bring in out of-contract winger Chris Eagles following his release from Bolton.

Bradford City are looking to loan out Niall Heaton, a number of non league clubs are interested but it looks likely the youngster will be joining Ossett Town.

25 Aug 2014 14:06:00
Rotherham's Steve Evans is looking for a striker having lost out on Stevie May whose wage demands were out of line with the Millers pay policy No truth in rumour that he wants another midfield player so Swindon's Massimo Luongo is not likely to be joining but Leon Clarke is a possible target.

25 Aug 2014 05:54:01
preston turned down a bid for joe garner from Rotherham he is valued at 2.5 million pounds but garner as stated he is happy at deepdale and does not want to leave, preston could also make a couple of signings this week one could be alex nimerly or leon Clarke and a centre half

If like Clarke

03 Aug 2014 17:38:00
Brighton and Hove Albion are close to agreeing a fee with Bristol City for captain Sam Baldock.

The Robins will then use the money to bring in Rotherham forward Kieran Agard

02 Aug 2014 21:01:40
shola amiobie set to sign for rotherham and fellow former newcastle teammate conor newton to rotherham united.

02 Aug 2014 09:24:45
Rotherham look set to add stevie may to the ranks in a deal reported to be between £800k to £1.2m

29 Jul 2014 10:09:52
Gary Mackay Stevens is back on Huddersfield Towns radar as Dundee Utd are believed to be considering a bid of around 600k from Rotherham and this is likely to be very close to the fee they are looking for. Town had major interest at around the figure previously and are likely to jump in to the race if the offer or a little bit more is accepted for him. This would mean a swift exit would be welcomed for Sean Scannell - who is looking for a move back down south.

They turned down 750k from Barnsley and 900k from Watford so this definitely isn't true

18 Jul 2014 22:04:41
MIDDLESBROUGH are bracing themselves for some significant bids for Albert Adomah.
SOUTHAMPTON, EVERTON, QUEENS PARK RANGERS and CRYSTAL PALACE are preparing bids in excess of 5m.
ADOMAH'S agent has stated he is not looking to move, but would be willing to if the club were to accept an offer for him.
Another player Middlesbrough have received bids for is Smallwood, he is understood to be ready to move on, ROTHERHAM are looking to push a deal through at 800k however their has been late interest from Wolves who are willing to include a player in exchange.

Hope this is wrong, no interest in loosing either player. would rather stick with what we've got + a rb and another striker (not doyle).

19 Jul 2014 08:23:45
I'm with you on that.
The saving from grace is they are both happy to stay.
The only concern is the fee's involved.
Could we replace Adomah for 5m, I don't think we could.
George Friend has been the best bargain buy since Robbie Mustoe and we need him even more than Adomah in my opinion.

19 Jul 2014 08:52:15
Would love to see smallwood stay, though the Adam Clayton possible transfer would knock him further down the pecking order.

No need to sell adomah, can't get anyone else good enough really quite cheap to replace him really hope we keep him!

Bristol City will get 20% of anything over £1m

For £5m upfront i'd sell him if i'm honest. Disappeared at times during the season. Was both brilliant and non existent in equal doses. Could bring in 2/3 players and help balance out the squad better. Perhaps i'm too harsh

Must keep a 12goal winger if you want out

We can't sell adomar unless for crazy money 10 million at least as it would cost to replace him. Also if he leaves we will have no wingers apart from youth eg reach as both ledesma and carayoul are injured for start of season. Meanwhile boro have already rejected a bid from Rotherham for smallwood so I doubt he will move unless we do but Clayton.

Don't think Adomah is the type of player saints will be going after.

19 Jul 2014 18:00:31
Adomah to stay and if we fail to get promoted he will leave next season, a gentlemans agreement. Smallwood will go if we recruit in midfield.

Like I said a few days ago nothing imminent transfer wise, maybe one in midweek.

19 Jul 2014 18:23:51
It looks like Huddersfield are sticking to their demand of 3m for Clayton and MIDDLESBROUGH will not go above 1.5m.
Ake has visited the region and Rockcliffe park. Unsure if a deal will be arranged.
The talk from the pre-season camp is Butterfield has played brilliantly in a holding role and Karanka rates him highly. It makes sense to use our funds on a quality right back and Vossen (but only if we play with 2 up top).

19 Jul 2014 21:33:25
I think Butterfield has a lot to offer, don't think he's had a fair crack of the whipl.

Butterfield is class one of best last year underrated and better than whitehead

Butterfield is a lot better than Adam Clayton on my eyes mistake if we let him go I think ledbitter will make way myself

He's not worth that and the game ia finished now all these average players going for daft money if they want 3mill for him we need ten million for Albert simple 12 goals from the wings is unreal ano he is hit and miss but aren't the all utb keel Albert

Totally agree with you guys, if Clayton is worth 3 mil what's adomah worth.

Clayton is average my personal opinion Butterfield is a better player bad business mfc if this happens.

I still feel there 5 players short though btw karanka is best manager to coach Middlesbrough since stevie mac this guy says

20 Jul 2014 08:36:51
I agree Butterfield has the potential to control a game and is a great passer of the ball. He was subbed to many times last season. He had a cracking game in the last friendly against Real Balompédica.

For me Whitehead is the one who should be moved on first.

20 Jul 2014 09:24:40
I'm with you on the Karanka comment.
He's a brilliant coach/manager.
To have sorted our defence last season was incredible.
As all good managers will tell you, you start at the back and work your way forward.
I seriously look at our squad and can't see a real area of weaknes apart from right back.
Possibly one more striker. But only if we play him up top with Kike.
A few friends of mine own property in Murcia and are Boro fans, they think Kike will do big things in English football.
Fingers crossed gents. UTB.

I agree jmr deano should go even though he has good experience nit we got grant to keep things ticking over in the middle what makes mw wonder we have a strong midfield and we want clayton carnt get my head round it so sumert is happening I have a funny feeling grant to forrest that's the reason for Clayton juat a guess like

Reports coming from GENK are that Middlesbrough have pulled out of the bid to sign Jelle Vossen not sure how true it is as only heard from one source so far.

Boro britt 99 if we were in talks with genk over vossen he would not be doing preseason games with them I would go gor britt whata people views vossen is out ov our reach he's prem class

I Realy don't see the point in the clayton bid too, why not use the 1. 5, add it too the 500k bid for juanfran, and pay 2million for a decent right back, then loan in Bamford as cover striker for kike and get omerou on loan, I also agree butterfield should play alongside grant for this season, they both may be small but my god they are tough lads, not scared off a tackle and definitely not afraid to shoot, be a brilliant partnership, clayton will be a waste of money, also Smallwood can play in claytons position so still not needed

20 Jul 2014 15:41:30
We haven't pulled out for Vossen, Gibson and Bausor are playing the waiting game with Genk.

One in mid-week if everything goes well with the paperwork.

20 Jul 2014 16:23:50
Middlesbrough are waiting to see if Genk approach them regarding Vossen, Gibson is still angry at Genk's attitude in the previous transfer window and has made a final offer for Vossen's service's.
The player is desperate for a deal to be concluded but Middlesbrough are now looking at alternatives with Glenn Murray (palace) and Bechio being discussed.

20 Jul 2014 18:34:12
Big ken should be soon back and also think we might go for Bamford to play along with kike think it could work me

20 Jul 2014 20:30:52
Becchio was Mobray's pet project. The club no longer have interest in him.

Omerou has already confirmed his move back to us tonight, should join next weekend. Likewise Patrick Bamford will be joining us after Chelsea's match in Austria mid-week. As I also mentioned a couple weeks back, Nathan Aké is the alternative to Clayton and is keen on a loan in the Championship.

Kenneth omerou back to the boro as he posted a picture on social media saying he's looking forward to re joining boro! What a singing!

Jrm do you think we need all the midfielders if grant goes then fine we don't need Clayton Butterfield is better and younger

20 Jul 2014 23:54:53
Leadbitter will stay. Butterfield is looking good in pre-season so would expect him to stay if Clayton doesn't move. Could even have both.

Smallwood is a decent player but Rotheram are still keen and he isn't first choice here.

Nathan Aké is superb, may even better than Chalobah?

Leadbitter, Butterfield/Clayton, Aké, Bryn Morris and Whitehead. That's a good selection for the CM positions.

Always good to see your views JRM always has valid information that doesn't come from social media sites I am excited about the new season bamford would be a great loan signing I don't really know much about ake is there any chance of us signing chalaba again? And anyonw got aby information regarding the rightback

JRM don't be surprised to see Leadbitter go he is entering the last year of his contract just like Clayton at Huddersfield. Some wheeling and dealing to be done yet!

15 Jul 2014 13:19:38
Swindon have rejected a £600,000 bid from Rotherham United for midfielder Massimo Luongo.
