Jelle vossen's long awaited transfer to middlesbrough will be completed this week after he was left out of the genk squad for a game on Sunday
Middlesbrough have agreed to pay €4M with bonuses possibly rising to €6M if the club is promoted to the premier league

BOro86


Forget bosses 6 mill let's get graham& delfonso free graham 1mill

Jim123


Vossen to sign for Feyenoord!

Smogmonster


27 Jul 2014 22:44:37
Or he could be going too Greece

Andy7033


He is to sign for Feyenoord for 5-6m euros. £4. 5 - £5m.

No chance Boro could afford the deal.

Smogmonster


Where do people get this from man we will never get hidden cause were too tight we should have got Varga but never cause too tight there's a pattern going on but I don't understand why we don't invest the money we were willing to pay for dissent in abother good striker cause we need one that will help out and score loads and has guilty said it all along graham is terrible we need to spend decent money on strikers otherwise what a water selling juke may as well get lita and McDonald insteadfor free makes sense then get a quality striker 5 mill

Middlesbrough will not be signing Vossen or Bamford. Danny Graham is our last resort if we can't get anyone better in before the deadline. I'm sure we will though, is it our season?

LLboro


It's ridiculous man we should be able to get a decent striker even if we pay about 4 mill, we have the money that's why we sold juke and emnes if we just get graham that's not good enough he's terrible, should have kept juke that will come back to haunt us

after a 3-1 defeat Genk announced for the missing Vossen "Major surprise before the kickoff. Jelle Vossen was not in the core at Genk. Officially because the attacker suffers a slight injury to the knee, though it seems an imminent transfer to Middlesbrough a better explanation".

boromad


Rumors out of Belgium are that Vossen move is imminent, olympiakos are leading the race with boro needing to make an improved bid. Vossen has not been included in the squad for Genks upcoming fixture suggesting his time at the club is near an end. UTB

boroswag


Genk striker Jelle Vossen has not been included in their squad to face KV Mechelen and, although the official reason is that he has a slight injury, reports in Belgium suggest that it is almost certainly because he is on the verge of a transfer. Boro are not the only side in contention, though, with Olympiakos also reportedly interested

boroswag


Totally agree vossen will never sign for the boro
totally lightweight for champo and not worth the so called asking price 6m
we can bring in 3 good players for 4m we supposedly offerered

gj12345


Well boro are closing in on vossen and is expected to sign soon due to him being excluded from Genks squad for a friendly due to him on the verge of moving away from genk so let's hope its to the boro. As if we have him and Kike up front we will have the best striker pairing in the championship.

richyboro


Dont give up on the Vossen deal, reports in Belgium saying he's been pulled ou of tje current squad and could well be on his way to Boro.

redt


Seriously how is a striker who gets a goal every other game not good enough for some people? But let's spend £3m more on a total risk who'll jump ship first chance he gets. Grahams what we need

marshall


Lets hope boro put the bid in as vossen will chose us over olympiaxks like he said if he has the choice so come to the table boro as this is a player who wants to player for the club just like you wanted karanka.

richyboro


27 Jul 2014 19:59:06
Come on Boro make sure it's us signing vosson not olympiakos, let's not do what we did with the McCormack transfer last year as this will also come back to haunt us we can't lose out on him over a few quid, he's a top striker not only that he wants to he here playing for the Boro and not just joining us for the money like slot of past players

daz_boro

Vossen signing for Olympiakos not Boro

tommy40996


27 Jul 2014 22:31:47
News that Vossen looks to be making a move to Feyenoord this week- huge blow for Boro I did say it a few days ago but we aren't ruthless enough when signing players Gibbo needs to realise that only spending big money will get us back into the top flight or simply luck which we never have!!

tommy40996


27 Jul 2014 22:49:43
If Deeney leaves WFC, expect them to sign Graham instantly

jamigilmore2


Come off it Tommy first Vossen is going to Greece then 8 minutes later you have him going to the Netherlsnds. What is this speed rumour? He is in talks with the Boro. definitely! Let's hope we can do a deal.

After the signing of husband boro will now try and bring in Branford on loan and also are looking at a number of possible right backs, most likely to be Spanish, Karanka will try and finalise these deals this week

jackboro


26 Jul 2014 18:33:40
Patrick bamford is a waste of space. I'd rather play with 10 men

John388


26 Jul 2014 19:40:26
Surprised we have signed a left back reserve before a right back and 0.5 mill is a lot for a sub with potential because he will probably leave on the cheap before he achieves it, Adam Johnson, james morrison, Lee cattermole and soon to be Curtis main as he is off leaving us with the unknown to the championship test and out of favor kamara

daz_boro


Daz boro we never paid 5mill try 500tho and can play rb to appranley

The new boro lad 86


Trust me guys husband is talented lad. fast gets crosses in great at defending. 0. 5 is a snip and George friend has big competition I've seen this guy play 12 times last year he stands out that's why a. k has been scouting him. And a. k has sighed some good players tomlin mejias husband kike omuero i'm liking this new manager I thikk he's a breathe of fresh air a. k will take us up moee players to come lads be patient

redrocket_123


Well it is the deal which has happened first d it means when george gets injured we have cover and not have to do the Burnley match with 3 at the back and defend for our lives.

richyboro


27 Jul 2014 08:58:42
I don't mean to sound like I'm complaining just thought we could have but that half mill towards a top right back or striker and use someone like Halliday if heaven forbid friend gets insured. I know it's the past but I'm still so mad we messed up on McCormack last year we could of had him if We went so stubborn and his goals would of fired us up for sure he's proven and prolific in the championship where as kike has only done it in a very poor division in Spain. Praying he is the real deal though good striker is well overdue

daz_boro


Personally i'd love to have Bamford in. Showed us want he can do in the championship at derby okay mabye he wasn't consistent enough but most of the time he did the job I'd happily have him at boro

jackboro


The approach for Husband is interesting. Not only does it show we have some money to speculate on the future but it also suggests that we already know how much we will have left when the big deals are done. Does this mean they are all nearing completion!

Lastmanstanding


John 388 I think your being abit hasty if mourinho is recommending the lad he must show talent he's done well on loan other spells and with the speed and creativity out wide given half a chance he could very well I think you have to be realistic by the way we played afew games with 10 men last season and didn't come off very well did we

Middlesbrough looking to sign Patrick Bamford and Lewis Baker on loan from Chelsea this week. Boro are also trying to get Carl Jenkinson on loan from Arsenal but there is also interest from the Premiership.

ukll


26 Jul 2014 18:32:28
Why does everyone want bamford!
We need proven strikers who won't just get shoved off the ball.

John388


AS he is good and is proven by derby form end of last season so good second striker only cover anyway. Best we will get unless of cause Vossen who will fire us to promotion.

Middlesbrough are set to announce the signing off Doncasters James husband after the Rochdale game for a fee of 500,000

dcarter


26 Jul 2014 14:14:11
Great piece of business, bags of potential. Don't worry George Friend isn't going anywhere before people start debating, although Andy Halliday is likely to leave.

Interesting to see we have offered Curtis Main to Doncaster for a good rate. Clearing the attacking ranks ready for two fresh faces upfront.

JRM


Boro looking at former arsenal forward
jay simpson who as just terminated his contract in thailand

gj12345


Keep main for god sakes great potential one of the best left

Sidgybean99


Curtis main, luke Williams and smallwood are just not good enough for the championship get rid quick.

borobilly


I agree I feel unless we have another striker we should not get rid of main as what will happen if kike gets injured first game and we have to play kamara or fewster as they will be the only ones left.

richyboro


Smallwood is good enough for the championship, I rate him over whitehead tbh, he isn't as good as leadbitter or butterfield but he is still a tallent, also luke williams and curtis main aren't good enough in their positions, they are not strikers, they can't score in this leauge like a striker should, but they are fast, strong and know how to play a pass, they would be good in tomlins role or williams left wing and main right wing, but let's get off them 3, I think husband is a great singing, aswell as omerou mejias and kike they are all brilliant additions to the squad, if we haft to wait a long time for players of that calliber, then I will deffinatly be patient, UTB

Boroladd


Curtis Main is not good enough. He is 22 now, not a kid, and should be showing much more than he did last season. Lots of effort but no result, 6 goals in 45 games. time to be moved on.

News just coming out that Boro have signed RB James Husband from Doncaster for 500K.

bubblegookid


James Husbands a left back

Baz_Tyke


What side of defence does he play?

Boro man


He is a left back cover for george friend, and also he can be left wing back when we play 5 at the bsck, great signing in my eyes, only 20 years old remember, this means that robinson from liverpool runour will not follow through, any ideas on the right back?

Boroladd



 

 

25 Jul 2014 10:34:09
Liverpool's Jack Robinson has been linked with a loan to Boro he spent last season on loan at Blackpool and the Reds are happy for him to head out again to gain further experience.

bubblegookid


Boro considering a possible move for free agent leroy lita
also danny graham to sign next week
as boro have struggled to sign the players they origanally wanted

gj12345


25 Jul 2014 12:52:50
He would be good cover for Friend, I don't really want Gary ONeil if i'm honest, would prefer Jack Collison who is training with QPR but also a free agent, lost a bit of form but he's still only 25, so has time on his side.

Pavel8


Hope we get lita he was class before shouldn't have got rid of him he was fast and great shot goal scorer! Please get him back and tuncay

Sidgybean99


26 Jul 2014 11:36:44
Sidgy, stop living in the past, tuncay is past it and lita was brutal, one of hhe laziest players iv seen. Stay clear boro, its time to move on!

Tim cahill is a transfer target for Middlesbrough fc

redrocket_123


He is strongly linked with a loan move to Millwall

borobrit99


25 Jul 2014 10:38:07
If Tim Cahill returns to England it won't be to play in the championship, specially after having a decent world cup. Ill be surprised if all our other signings don't turn out to be Spanish players we havnt heard of

daz_boro


Would be a great signing he can play centre mid and forward positions

Top targets are jelle vossen and tim cahill and

Gary O'neil isn't returning.

However, I'm told that the club are hopeful of completing the signing of a new RB tomorrow. Just waiting for the green light so he can sign on the dotted line.

JRM


24 Jul 2014 23:56:02
Hope you are right

DV


I hope you're right I'm sick of the lack of signings if we don't sign new players we aren't going anywhere with the current squad! According to someone I know who works at the Club we are just 'keeping our eyes open' which isn't good enough Gibson must spend!

tommy40996


The club are trying to spend but it no good just getting a player just for the sake of it there is still over a month left of the window be patient karanka will get it right

Tow


25 Jul 2014 09:44:48
If all goes well then he should sign today. Hopefully they can get it completed, been waiting since Monday to get this deal finalized, don't know what the hold up has been.

JRM



 

 

23 Jul 2014 18:07:19
Middlesbrough will turn their attentions on securing the services of Castro Otto and Soriano after growing frustrated through Huddersfield Town playing hardball and the club will return for his signature later in the window, with Nathan Ake lined up as another option.

ShildonSmoggie


Hopefully your right been linked with otto well both for while now utb still want jelle

The new boro lad 86


What happened to half of the linked list not even mentioned now like Andrew Taylor and Tuncay eg be good to have Tuncay back also that young winger from league 2 Moses Odubajo, Luciano Becchio would be great also we should get him!

Sidgybean99


Whittingham would be a good buy you know aswell and don cowrie both been linked or was it Jordan mutch but peter whittingham would be great

Sidgybean99


Gueye, Gestede?

Sidgybean99


24 Jul 2014 12:28:02

Is this the correct current situation regarding transfers to Middlesbrough?

CF:
1st Jonatan Soriano
2nd Jelle Vossen
3rd Alberto Bueno
(Sign two CF's instead of Clayton.

RB: 1st Manquillo (Liverpool or Arsenal)
2nd Jonathan Castro Otto
3rd Juanfran.

Castro Otto and Soriano and see very options don't you think?

Do we need another midfielder?

Temporary loan cover for Carayol/Ledesa?

Tbh if there was geniune interest from a bigger club clayton may have left but why move to boro would make no sense n I think he clearly feels the same. I know before u all get up set that 15 years ago you got to a cup final so congrats your now just like millwall wigan and bradford. UTT

terrier85


And still held in a bigger regard than duddersfield. As for clayton I hope he stays. don't want him. None of us do.

marshall


And I wouldn't mind being as big as wigan right now. they've won a cup and been in europe and have an extremely good shot at going up. Not much of an insult. Unlike the mighty duddersfield and they're relegation battle. Again! Lol

Brighton are also in Pursuit of Red Bull Salzburg striker Jonathan Soriano, but will face stiff competition from Middlesbrough after they conceded defeat in their pursuit of Genk striker Jelle Vossen.

Bens-Grandad


Jonathan soriano is a player who got linked last season he's not bad but 3mill is a big risk he's not young scores goals but could he handle England what happened to jim going up the road to Newcastle that was only June time

The new boro lad 86


It is all over the soriano lad on twitter and roumer sites dose that mean we have lost out on vossen then ppl

The new boro lad 86


Said it for ages now don't know why we didn't buy McCormack eg now they've went for loads and done amazing

Sidgybean99



 

 

23 Jul 2014 06:48:33
After admitting defeat in the chase for Vossen, the club will now turn their attentions to 29 year old Jonathan Soriano, who is available for as little as 3m euros.
Omerou should officially join on a season long loan on the 30th July, with Middlesbrough confident they can wrap up an Adam Clayton deal before this date.

ShildonSmoggie


23 Jul 2014 10:38:02
Bausor and Gibson will be holding further talks for Vossen in the next week. We're ahead of Olympiarcos a) we can offer more in wages b) he wants to come here.

No confidence in the Clayton deal being completed soon, though that doesn't mean it won't happen at all.

Working on a RB, some movement soon.

JRM


The vossen deal is far from dead genk playing hardball as they always do when selling players it is my understanding that we are waiting to here back frim them in the next few days but it looks like clayton could be heading elsewere

smoggygooner


Adam Clayton is looking very unlikely now as well as Jelle Vossen as Huddersfield are increasing their asking price for him and Boro are becoming fed up. Several different options being currently looked at in hope of some pulling through.

borobrit99


Clayton was never for sale. Huddersfield chairman said right back and the beginning of this that every player has a price and Clayton's was £3m. Nothing changed there, you tried to unsettle the lad and try and force a move through. It was never going to happen. The only way Clayton will go is if someone meets the chairmans price. We told you that 3 weeks ago.

I personally would rather see Butterfield given the chance, looked so sharpe in training and away in Spain. Also looking forward to seeing a little more of Bryn Morris, especially if Smallwood goes.

Club hoping to get a deal done in the next two days.

After all the talk about Middlesborough signing Jelle Vossen, the striker will rebuff them and join Olympiakos

jamigilmore2


Who needs vossen when you have Bradley fewster this kid is on fire

Still need another striker though kike looks great

redrocket_123


I don't think the Vossen to olimpiakos deal will happen as it seems he is more likely going to want to come to England to make a name for himself to be sold on for bigger money in the future if he proves he has what it takes to play English football

LW96


21 Jul 2014 15:45:34
Vossen is in talks with Olympiakos today. A good move for the player in my opinion if only because I've never been to Middlesborough when it hasn't been raining. I used to live in Bolton and even I think it's grim in 'boro.! ;0)

Mekwad


21 Jul 2014 15:59:13
Why would he choose championship over regular European football?

Jctoostepz


21 Jul 2014 16:33:46
That rumours has no real substance. Vossen came out on a Belgian national sports program two days ago saying that the Championship wasn't a step down and that the Boro project was exciting. Gibson will try once more after a period of transfer mind games with Genk.

JRM


True I didn't even rate him anyway, we were buzzing about him for ages don't know why overrated and overpriced! We need another striker desperate for sure and a back up winger and we need to play 2 wingers and 2 upfront that will work, but 1 on his own upfront won't work like Jutkiewicz plays well with a partner same as any player really!

Sidgybean99


21 Jul 2014 21:13:41
if Middlesbrough really wanted Vossen they knew what was required to sign him.
Is he worth it, we don't know.
My concern was strength and being able to cope with the hustle and bustle of the championship.
If he does opt for Greece then ok, we move on and strengthen with another forward.

JackLewis2014


Boro in the market for a rb st and Central midfielder y please sumert a miss whos going Whitehead and smallwood if any keep other good comp if we start season with grant Butterfield and Clayton be best and ready gor prem

The new boro lad 86


22 Jul 2014 09:59:33
Speaking as someone who has seen him play in person on a few occasions, Vossen is more than capable of dealing with the Championship.

I agree with the club that waiting to do a deal strengthens our hand at the table with Genk. It allows us to get others through the door this week and next.

JRM


Yea because vossen carnt do it in championship but he can do on champions league so what your sayhe championship is the best league ger a grip if we did manage to get vossen he will get more goals that any other in this league

The new boro lad 86


22 Jul 2014 18:00:07
I'm not knocking his ability at all.
The championship is a very physical league that is known for its extreme tempo.
He would get far more time on the ball in the majority of leagues in Europe than he would in the championship.
He is a class act but would need time to adapt. Can we afford to buy a player that needs time to adapt?

JackLewis2014


Middlesbrough could very well end up getting Vossen as the player wants out at Genk and not many managers tend to keep players if their unhappy. I'm unsure for this season if I'd prefer Vossen or Graham as a cheaper option. But what if Graham's goals dry up and in the event boro did get promoted, can he cut it in the premier league? Vossen would be worth the outlay if we could afford it because not only would he be great this season, he could do a decent job in the premier league too. So we would already have at least one player capable of playing at the top level. I would allow some players to leave if they wanted too such as smallwood, steele e. c. t as they could bring in at least £3m i'm sure. As I believe we can only have 3 loans I would obviously get omerou who is coming to boro anyway, get either ake or bamford on loan preferably bamford as he scores goals and has proved he can do it at this level and keep one loan available for the end of the transfer window as sometimes its needed if clubs can't agree a fee but can agree to loan. we need a senior right back, possibly a left winger after ledesma and carayol's injuries and I would be happy at that. I would give david atkinson the chance to be cover at right back as he seems to have done well pre season. UTB!

If Troy Deeney leaves Watford then Danny Graham will be on his way back to Vicarage Rd anyway

jamigilmore2


I looked on the football league website and this was the actual rule regarding loaning players:
53. 2. 5 A Loaning Club can have a maximum of 4 Players under 23 and a further 4 Players over 23 registered on a Standard Loan during any Season. The deadline for determining a Player's age in this respect shall be 30 June prior to the Season in which the Standard Loan is intended to take place.

Grant leadbitter who is middlesbroughs best midfielder is valued at £6m by the club and is attracting interest from mid table premier league clubs.

SuperGL


£6 million nice one hopefully we don't let him go though if he's worth 6 then adomah is worth 10, we don't need to sell any of our best players they are key to having any sucess come on boro spend wisely get another winger and another striker we will be sorted already got omeruo now

Sidgybean99


Grant 6mill no chance but if ross mccmak goon for daft money a long with few others football is going mad ony eyes like fabio borni mill its a joke at this rate we never get vossen enner Valencea daft money to

The new boro lad 86


Vossen off to Olympiakos, that should end all the speculation about him! Hopefully Karanka can now spend his time over actually getting players that are affordable!

phillyd


Tbh why are we looking for another striker, Luke Williams got 3 in 4 games, brad fewster 3 in 4 games, kike 2 in 1 game, I'd say all 3 have pretty good stats for pre season, maybe loan in Bamford but as much as I'd like vossen at the boro, we don't Realy need him, also I don't see the point in clayton also, I'd like to see nathen ake here, I would of loved to see Tomas kalas as our right back but no chance, maybe kurt zouma?

Boromad86


Boromad86 I think scoring in pre season against inferior opposition is a different kettle of fish than a full season in the championship.
Thats why I would welcome Danny Graham back, Aitor liked him aswell as the players and is proven in this division.

redt


Were keeping close tabs on britt asombalonga would be half the risk ov vossen and can operate the wings would be good people views

The new boro lad 86


22 Jul 2014 07:26:35
I'd happily take assombalonga, just to hear Paul Merson try to pronounce it on soccer Saturday.
Seriously though, the kid is rapid and cab score goals.
I wouldn't see it as a gamble either, he's a proven striker.

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.

JackLewis2014


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).

redt


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.

JackLewis2014


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.

redt


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

Sidgybean99


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

marv


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

marshall


Must keep a 12goal winger if you want out

The new boro lad 86


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.

richyboro


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

BillyBoy


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.

JRM


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).

JackLewis2014


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.

redt


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

Sidgybean99


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

The new boro lad 86


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

The new boro lad 86


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

redrocket_123


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.

JRM


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.

JackLewis2014


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

The new boro lad 86


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.

borobrit99


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

The new boro lad 86


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

Boromad86


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.

JRM


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.

JackLewis2014


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

The new boro lad 86


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.

JRM


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!

Boromad86


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

The new boro lad 86


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.

JRM


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

smoggygooner


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!

18 Jul 2014 09:30:39
Middlesbrough manager Aitor Karanka is looking to tie up season long loan deals for Chelsea's Kenneth Omerou and Patrick Bamford within the next week

boroloony


This is true as if Adam clayton proves to be too much money then he would turn his attention towards Bamford which tbh is a very smart option as he has had 2 brilliant seasons and is showing he is still going good as he scored 2 goals for Chelsea in the friendly game

Boromad86


18 Jul 2014 19:10:50
i hope you are right about chelsea loanees
but I can't see it happening
there are bigger clubs than the boro after those 2
i have heard we are back in for becchio but it looks like he is going back to leeds probably end up with doyly good scouting gilly lad

gj12345


Yes but the thing is Bamford is a striker while Clayton is a midfielder so we may get Bamford for the striking role thenn omeru for defence but we still need a right back so I say why not go for kalas aswell. Then if we still want Clayton bid for him as all other areas are filled

richyboro


18 Jul 2014 22:13:32
Mourinho is keeping Bamford at Chelsea this season pal.
He has plans for him, similar to Harry Kane at Spurs.
Middlesbrough have been given the green light on several Chelsea fringe players but Karanka is looking at permanent deals at the moment. Boro turn down an improved offer for Adomah from forest with bigger clubs circling to come in with big offers and Qpr have been in touch about George Friend again.

JackLewis2014


19 Jul 2014 00:05:25
Aitor is very keen on Bamford after missing out on him in January . Chelsea have no room for him so he will be heading out on loan. Omerou, Bamford and Aké all on Boro's list. We will have to wait though. All deals are flat right now. Maybe next week we might expect one deal to happen, a RB and possibly Omerou if he gets the all clear from Chelsea doctors.

JRM


To be honest why are we after a new midfielder anyway? What's wrong with butterfield, tomlin, whitehead, leadbitter and Smallwood? We aren't desperate for a midfielder so why bother with clayton? If we feel we are weak in the position next to grant, just ask good old Jose to help us out and use our big money on a second decent striker and a decent right back, also we need a cover left and right back as we can't just have 1 left back in the whole team and 1 right back in the whole team, tbh if we get a decent right back in our team will be pretty much complete

Boromad86



 

 

15 Jul 2014 19:20:40
Vossen deal expected to be done within the next 2 weeks, costing around 4.5 million pounds, also middlesbrough will be looking at the vacancy for Dutch left back van aanholt to play right back if our second target right back from Spain does not come through, also Adam clayton joining for 1.8 million and Kenneth omerou joining next week

Boromad86


Lets hope so

richyboro


Van ahnholt is a left back would be a fantastic signing

Tow


What happened to Andrew Taylor coming back we should have kept him anyway

Sidgybean99


We cannot sell adomah, he is almost priceless to us, nothing less than about 8 I know it sounds daft but we don't need to sell him!

Sidgybean99


Genk asking for too much for Vossen so I doubt we'll sign him! Like deal confirmed which is a plus but Karanka still looking out for another striker and no names have been mentioned as of yet. He is focusing on a new right back and looks like he could be signing a Spanish defender relatively soon! Rejected a bid for Adomah today and Juke deal done!

tommy40996


16 Jul 2014 11:35:58
I for one am tired of all of this Vossen speculation, he looks a top player for the championship but Genk just don't want to lower their ridiculous valuation. Hope I'm wrong but I just don't see it, perhaps next season for free? Spend the time elsewhere on other targets!

Boro_Andy


Vossen is not signing for boro
we are bringing in kevin doyle
who is brilliant in the air
and a good physical player just what we need to get out of this league

gj12345


Another player someone mentioned is Alberto Bueno from real vallecano. He apparently was soon becoming a free agent and he was impressing tottenham and also a spanish team over his form of late. He plays as a secondary striker but can play behind the striker, on the right and on the left wing. His versatility could be useful, especially as Carayol and ledesma are both out injured.
Kenneth omerou should be high on the list of boro transfer targets as he was very good last season and we could benefit from him with his youth, talent and a cb free from injuries unlike woodgate who is injury prone.
As for a Rb I can't understand why the club looked past Varga who was quiet but very decent last season for us and for the same money we offered Betis for Juanfran. I'm a bit wary of Karanka signing only Spanish players as he is more familiar with them but if we reach the playoffs I won't be complaining. UTB!

BoroJack


Im tired of it too. Been going on for years, like it did with alves. If he was any good some other club would have been in for him by now. Why not? i'd look at frees and the lower leagues and spend the vossen money on building a better squad than last season. A good first elevens fine but we really need a much better overall squad

marshall


16 Jul 2014 14:55:41
No marshal we need a good attack as the defence last season became phenomenal by championship standard n midfield has been good for years it's always been either back or upfront that's needed improvement n other teams were in for him I.e Newcastle and west ham but they were priced out of a move but now he has only a year left on his current deal so we're trying our luck with cheeky bids. Jelle vossen would no doubt be the 1st choice forward of any boro fan who knows his stuff on international players NOT the likes of Kevin Doyle as stated above n I don't know why anybody would think another long neck donkey is what we need lol UTB

Borolionheart


16 Jul 2014 16:00:14
I was told Alberto Bueno was watched along with Kike from January onwards, he certainly caught the eye. He can drop off wide when needed, so his versatility will be a bonus. As for Kevin Doyle, he will not be coming to Boro, Aitor has no interest in him.
Boro likely to renegotiate with Genk next week. Nothing on Clayton until next week earliest. RB if anything this week.

JRM


Why DO people want kevin doyle? okay he has a decent goalscoring record in english football, but he's 30 years old, I personally don't like him, what if he flops at boro like many seem to do, they might have been good in the past but whenever they come to Boro, it doesn't seem to work. The difference between Doyle and Vossen is 5 years and the fact Vossen has publicly stated that a move to Teesside appeals to him. Any manager would tell you that if a player wants to leave, it's better they do, so that's why I think he very well might come to the Boro. Also a major point in all this is future investment, if we go and sign doyle and end up getting promoted, would you be confident that he could keep you in the premier league? Or would you go sign a new striker anyway? I hold Vossen as a very good footballer who in my opinion is too good for the championship, but he would be the man I would be putting up front if we reached the premier league. He's played against some top players at european level i'm sure.

BoroJack

Middlesbrough and Burnley have agreed a deal for Lucas Jutkiewicz, the upfront fee is 1. 75m, raising to 2. 25m in add ons.
jelle Vossen is likely to make his long awaited move to Middlesbrough by the weekend, an offer is being considered by Genk and Middlesbrough have been given permission to speak to Vossen.
A deal is expected to be completed by the weekend.
Yadling (USA international) has again been discussed as a possible right back purchase, I've heard this from 4 different sources within the club and Villa have been. contacted about the possibility of taking Alan Hutton on loan.

JackLewis2014


His name is DeAndre Yedlin and he's been linked with much bigger sides than us so if we pull that one of that will be a major coup. The Juke deal is true it's on the Gazette, we're also close to wrapping up a deal for Adam Clayton and should be completed by Thursday at the latest.

BoroLad93


Fee for Duke is broken up as follows :

£1. 25m up front

£0. 25m based on appearances
£0. 25m based on goals
£0.5m based on BFC staying up

Good business

Claret


15 Jul 2014 00:16:52
Genk usually plays hardball with their transfer dealings. However, I've heard that Herbert Houben is willing to lower their evaluation if we pay a big chunk upfront. Enter the fee for Jutkiewitz. £4m + promotion/sell-on benefits. Sit tight.

Vossen will sign the deal will take time but he will sign for boro

Andy7033


15 Jul 2014 18:10:37
The new boro lad 86 - all I can do is share bits I hear. We get linked with lots of players, as do all top clubs. Agents ring clubs around the clock brokering for deals and Yedlin's has done exactly that.
The kid has had one good game and on the back of that people think he will sign for Liverpool or Roma.
This site is for rumours. Some turn in to reality, some don't.
But his agent has contacted the club several times to offer his availability, because believe it or not it has got out that Boro have funds to spend.
If we sign someone else great, if we sign him great.
Unreliable. Funny. It's a rumour page.

JackLewis2014


I reckon 5 million for vossen will be acceptable for both clubs, which means we will probably haft to get a cheap right back or a loan right back as the rest of the spending money will go towards getting clayton, got a good feeling for this season tbh

Boromad86


15 Jul 2014 20:58:32
I would value Yedlin at about £2-3million max. He's on £1k a week. However, he looks like he's heading to Italy with the view to being loan back to Seattle.

We're talking to two RB's. One is a perm the other a loan so we will see. Doubt Clayton will happen this week. Vossen deal is hotting up, especially after his outburst against Al Shabab.

Middlesbrough manager aitor karanka is set to add to the Spanish contingent with the signing of Athletico Madrid reserve right back javier manquilo gaitan, the highly rated youngster has represented Spain at all youth levels and karanka has moved quickly to clinch a 2m deal

Phileas smog


12 Jul 2014 22:24:59
Rayo Vallecano striker Alberto Bueno is supposedly the other Spanish player we have held talks with. Boro watched him along with Kike.

JRM


Bueno is quality, would love it if we got him!
The young rightback looks good, but at only 20, not sure how it'd be much different from playing Atkinson & at 2mil, loan would make more sense. Unless that's 2mil Euros ofcourse in which case would prob be worth the risk, as clearly got potential. We should take a look at free agents, e.g Giourkas Seitaridis, experienced Greek international centre/rightback, played 33 times for Panithanikos last year so obvs still has it. Judging by the world cup if there's one things the Greeks do well it's defend.

Pavel8


13 Jul 2014 08:35:26
Manquilo could easily play for a premier league club I believe he's linked to arsenal as a reserve would be class if we got him and £2m isn't enough UTB

Boro man


Bueno, forward/winger, is out of contract so would be available for free. With talks of Butterfield or Kamara being offered in the Clayton deal there could be something in this.

borotillidie


13 Jul 2014 15:07:19
just googled Bueno and saw he was on loan at Derby a few years back, wonder if any Derby fans can give us an opinion (thats if any actually see this, don't know why they would).

jimjones


13 Jul 2014 15:20:47
Butterfield finished the season superbly and should not be let go at all.
Kamara wants to go and I can't blame him to be fair, he started brilliantly but was not given a chance after returning from injury.
Obviously Karanka doesn't fancy him so it makes sense to sell him.
Anyone buying him will be getting a hard working, strong target man with a goal in him. Makes me wonder what Aitor doesn't fancy but nevermind.

JackLewis2014


13 Jul 2014 20:06:44
I'd drive Kamara to Huddersfield if all I got paid was for the petrol. He is not hard working and is not particularly strong. He scored 4 goals in over 25 games last season and if he wants to leave as this malaria situation seems to tell us, why not use him to trick Huddersfield into reducing the fee?

Jimjones


13 Jul 2014 21:22:19
Bueno is good with the ball at his feet, not good in the air but would complement Kike (although Tomlin is similar).

Kamara will move on. Butterfield will go if Clayton is recruited but they want more than we value him at. If the club move players on, I would say another 2 forwards, a RB, CM and Omerou in.

JRM


Don't sell Butterfield he's really good underrated and has a bright future he played great last season ran midfield, our problem is now a right back and another 2 strikers for backup and one to work alongside someone else playing 2 wingers and 2 strikers

12 Jul 2014 12:25:27
Smallwood is a very good player but not as good as Butterfield, Tomlin, Carayol, Adomah, Leadbitter, Ledesma, whitehead or Clayton If we do buy him.
It makes sense to sell him if we can get a decent return on him.
Kamara wants to leave, he won't stand a chance of getting in the team next season with Karanka in charge.

JackLewis2014


Hope smallwood one is true brilliant break up player and at 23 is a great prospect for the future playing alongside frecklington

Clayton would be a great signing not really defensive but creative and a great passer

Boro man


Tough tackling? You really are clueless

Fu


The juke not involved in per season 4-1 win, so his transfer to burnley must be down to personal agreements, so with his departure that's means we lost emnes, juke and graham and brought in kike, so at least 1 more striker to be expected, don't be shocked to see a striker and a right back coming home from the Spain trip!, also I think clayton deal will be done before start of the season as he seems a real target for us, and also expect jelle vossen on last minute deal, and also a extra left back for cover for George! Real exciting season for the boro this year! C'mon!

Boromad86


13 Jul 2014 09:53:40
Must of been ANDY clayton same guy as seen in cardiff.

terrier85


Terrier85 sorry to say but you're wrong, it's Adam clayton we have improved our bid to 1.5 million for Adam clayton, great player you'll be loosing and boro will be gaining

Boromad86


Clayton has gone to Portugal with the rest of the Huddersfield squad. Chairman has been here before, with Rhodes, didn't want to sell but when his asking price was met, £8m he went. Clayton will cost you £3m, meet it and he's yours. Look at it from Clayton perspective, run your contract down and move where he want's or go to Boro, which at best is a couple of places up the Championship from where he is now.

Fu


13 Jul 2014 15:13:50
I know who is he plays for my team I was taking the mick because you was describing a different player ( tough tackler) lol its called sarcasm plus relates to a previous poat by cardiff fan

terrier85


13 Jul 2014 16:28:22
FU, you speak sense about Clayton's fee but regarding where Middlesbrough stand in football terms you couldn't be more wrong. Look at our squad at the start of the season and see where we stand at Xmas.
We are 20/1 to go up this season, expect those odds to drop dramatically once we start the season. We have as good a squad as their is in championship already, with 3 more additions we are well equipped to mount a promotion campaign. This will be another tight division but we are amongst 8 teams with a realistic chance of going up.
Teams coming down from the premiership need time to adjust so I wouldn't assume Norwich, Cardiff or Fulham to walk it.
Clayton would jump at the chance to join Middlesbrough, his agent is angling for this move and it's the move Jelle Vossen (Belgian international) is crying out to make too, we are a big championship club with an outstanding chairman and are now ready to make a push back up to the premier league.

JackLewis2014


Jack, don't want to get into a my dads bigger than yours debate. It's not too long since Ayresome Park was locked up and you lot carried a coffin around the pitch. Yes you've had a few good years in the top fight but it's an equal long time ago. You got 16000 ish average last year we got 14000. You finished 12th we were 17th not exactly worlds apart. You have an untried manager with little experience. OK so you're spending a "bit" and like every year since you came down you expect big things and to sign every player going. Pay £3m and you'll get him. If not either we'll give him a new contract or he'll run it down and have the pick of many clubs. Personally I don't think he'll go to the Boro, but that is just my opinion. We don't have a bad squad you know, a couple more signings and a fit Vaughan and it's probably a match for yours. Again only my opinion but I think a move to Boro is a side way move. Like Mr Hoyle said £3m and if he wants he can go, think I'd drive him up myself for £3m! Boro are no longer the big fish a lot of their fans think they are

Fu


13 Jul 2014 18:15:14
FU. I agree with a lot of what you say.
Yes we nearly disappeared in the 80's, yes we do have poor attendances and yes we are linked with lots of names but we never get them.
And I'm sure your dad is bigger than mine too.
However, this is the first time a manager has been backed in the transfer market since the horrendous spell under Strachan when he bought average Scottish players (barring super Barry Robson) for stupid fees. We have a bit of money to spend and I'm sure Karanka will use it well.
Karanka managed 14 clean sheets in 25 games, when he arrived we were leaking goals for fun. He has sorted the defence and now he is sorting the attacking side of things.
I am unfamiliar with the Huddersfield squad, I have lots of Sheffield Wednesday fans as friends and they are vocal on their thoughts but I honestly couldn't name half of your team so I am not in a position to judge your chances next season but I do wish you all the best.
As for Clayton, we'll see.
If you do get Kamara in a swap deal you will all be happy with that in Huddersfield I am sure, with wells playing off him you would be a tough team to defend against.

JackLewis2014


Weve never been a big fish. Just a small town in europe ;p
And to say a move from juddersfield to boro is a side ways move is absolute nonsense. Apart from better facilities, better chairman and a realistic chance of promotion, rather than a relegation battle, why would he want to come?

marshall


And the club was saved in 1986. 28 years ago. As far as I know we weren't relegated from the premier an equal time.

marshall


Better facilities? Better Chairman? Realistic chance of promotions? Do you know anything about Huddersfield's facilities or chairman? I'll give you the promotion one, but then again who fancied Burnley last season? Again it's a case of a Boro fan jumping in and having a go at little old Huddersfield. If I was you I'd have a look at Canalside and Dean Hoyle, oh and when you do when Dean sold his business he got a bit more than his wealth is quoted at. He spilt the money with his wife 50/50. Next you'll be telling me the quality of the air is better up your way too! £3m and he's yours!

Fu


Oh and the big fish comment was more the money spending times you had when Robson was in charge. Every single time I come on here it's another long list of unrealistic targets from the Boro fans. Have you lot not heard about fair play? Gibson money doesn't matter when you have a transfer embargo in January! Either you put another 15000 on your crowd or come back to planet earth.
But like I posted before these are all just my opinions!

Fu


Has Huddersfield signed anyone this season? Probably not there a below average team who sell there best players he would jump at the chance to join Middlesbrough we have a manager who could easily manger any team in the prem, one of the best facilities in England, a squad that did really good last session without real goalscorers and for the first team in a few seasons money to bring our top targets in things are finally looking up for use and the attendance will go right up this year because Middlesbrough are showing they mean business this year

Borolad


Fu your right most of haven't heard about your facilities at Huddersfield but all Boro Fans know we all about ours, one of the best academies in the country, Rockcliffe again one of the best training grounds in the country and by far an away the best in the championship and every football fan with a brain knows Steve Gibson because season after season he's proved to be the best chairman in the world not just investment but the support and patience he shows managers he essentially saved our club. I'am sorry never heard of yours. we've had to build these facilities because its not always easy attracting players to the north east, most decent Boro fans know our limitations and are realistic, but with a good young manager who created the tightest defence in the championship and the backing of Gibbo in the transfer market money to buy the strikers we craved last season (when we threatened to make the play-offs last season and would have done with a half decent striker) we are looking a decent outside bet to get back to the premier league.
P. S last I checked this is a rumours site people can put any rubbish they like dosen't mean we all believe it look at the signing of Kike no-one saw that and for 3 million you can keep him there's better out there for less we won't go that high.

Callaby32


14 Jul 2014 17:58:02
3m is a ridiculous fee for Clayton, one yr left on his deal and still lots to prove.
I would pay 1m plus Kamara, if he is happy to join Huddersfield.
As Callaby32 said, for 3million you can keep him.
3 million gets you a proven international midfielder in today's market.

JackLewis2014


To ' FU ' you are disrespecting Middlesbrogh Fc as you are jealous of our ambitions, we are forking out millions for a champions league striker and our manager may have been unproved but has kept the tightest back line in the back end of the championship last term. Middlesbrough on paper are streaks ahead of lowly Hudderfield who are a big fish in a small pond. Middlesbrough are winners and have controlled the euros league in the past after rising back from the ashes. Hopefully we can get back there.

And it's been shown Boro won't pay over the odds and would rather walk away then be ripped off, guess it's stalemate then. See who blinks first. Anyway good luck to the Terriers as long as they finish behind Boro I'd be more then happy if you got second spot behind us in first.

Hearing rumours that Forrest are interested in Clayton (£2m)? Could be truth in it as Pearce was manager at Man City when Clayton was in the youth team set up?

PshycoBully


17 Jul 2014 08:21:44
Callarby 32 hope it is a stalemate but he has never said he wants to leave either so its not as if he's on the transfer market so forest can't be front runners for anything and if I was you I wouldn't be shouting from the roof tops pearces time at city or any part of his managerial career in fact he omly got the job at urs because of playing days & pos one of worst managers in league in MY OPIONION & wouldn't want him at town

terrier85


17 Jul 2014 14:21:33
fair play, personally I'd love to see him in a Boro shirt just as much as you'd clearly love him to stay. I didn't mention Forrest it was the post after me but I can see where your coming from in my opinion Forrest don't seem to have much of a scouting network because they only ever seem to chase players we show an interested in our players alraedy at our club. Leadbitter and Albert to name just two!! How do you feel about the mooted swap deal for Clayton involving Butterfield or Kamara? Butterfield finished the season strong but I woulsnt lose sleep over him going and anyone is welcome to Kamara!!

Callaby32


That's right terrier85. He has not got a league management record to be in any way proud of.

Come on fans . No real info on possible new signings at all. What's really going on. ?

17 Jul 2014 18:53:28
I like butterfield was gutted when we didn't try get him from nprwich but seemed to fade away he was quality at barnsley under mark robins so he could prob get best out him again but not in swap for clayts n I can't see us takin someone from you whilst bluntly turning you down lol

19 Jul 2014 19:03:44
I attended a business event in huddersfield on thursday and was speaking to the huddersfield town representative nigel clibbens. He said in so many words that adam clayton will be leaving in this transfer window. He was touting for business for buying vip boxes and player sponsorship. He said not to sponsor clayton as he will be leaving and clayton hhimself has made it clear that he wants to leave. I found this strange because he's out in portugal with the rest of the squad and all seems well? Sean Jarvis tried to play it down when people were asking further questions? Don't know what to make of it?

viv69


19 Jul 2014 22:36:59
Funny how we do all our business behind closed doors since deano arrived yet for some reason they were telling you I presume in confidence and you dive straight on here to tell us. Plus I think clayts will already have a sponsor don't suppose you know where and how much was mentioned too do you so I can pop to the bookies.

Middlesbrough getting Enrique Garcia from Real Murcia, 2.7 million, after weeks of talks, first I've heard but I'm not sure about him really coming from Murcia, must be decent for 2.7 mill

Sidgybean99


It's all about the money, the more you pay the better the player!
Is Gibson the richest man in the world because the bill for all these players you've getting is going to cost billions

Fu


Luke the juke off to burnley, does this mean we make a move for vossen to fill his spot or will it be back to Danny graham to add more money for a rb?

Boromad86


11 Jul 2014 22:20:56
Gossip within the club is that Karanka would have 5 million new funds to spend on the team this season. we got 1.5m back for Marvin and another 1.5m for Juke giving us 8m to spend on 3-4 transfer targets. kike cost 1m.upfront plus an additional set of installments to take it up to 2.5m. Karanka has one more unknown target in Spain (striker) to wait to hear back from, if that deal collapses he will go for Vossen which will mean we get a cheaper fullback (possibly free transfer or Chelsea loan deal) and Clayton. Still lots of dealings to be done.
Smallwood to Rotherham, Leadbitter to Forest, Steel to Leicester or Sunderland and Curtis Main has been linked with several 1st division clubs.
Any money brought in from sales can go back in to the team. All of those possible outgoings are speculation but are all very possible. karanka doesn't like a huge squad so it makes sense to replace 2 bit part players for 1 player that will improve the squad.

JackLewis2014


Sounds good JackLewis2014 so all the money we generate we can put back into the team, I agree with most of it except Leadbitter we should keep him he's a key figure for us and we need a few strikers for backup, if we play 2 wingers and 2 stokers we will be okay, 1 upfront doesn't work on his own said it all along no matter who you are it makes you look worse! This financial FairPlay rule has came in far too late now man city eg have ran riot, it's not fair on average clubs like us, if we get a rich invester we can't spend much!

Sidgybean99


12 Jul 2014 08:08:45
I agree with you Sidgybean99, we need to play with two strikers. I have a feeling that is his plan.
I feel the same way about Leadbitter but can't help but feel that 4m offered for him is good business.
This season we will see the best of Lee Tomlin also, he has the ability to get goals from deep and is a defenders nightmare.
This is a very large statement but he has a gazza style of play about him, he is stupidly strong on the ball and deceptively quick, the assist for Butterfield against Burnley was incredible and I think we will see more of that type of play next season.
We still have Kamara to move on, I know he has been offered to Huddersfield in a Clayton deal, time will tell on that one I guess.
We have lots to be optimistic about this season and Karanka is the man to get us back in to the premier league I am sure.
UTB.

JackLewis2014


Well why have huddefield said they want 1.5 million then fu I they want 3 million like you said as I believe that we will sell lukas to burnley then with that money buy clayton

Middlesbrough in talks with Adam Clayton and James Vaughun now they have signed Kike.

DV


Come on pal if you're having those two, you've got to take Jolly, Hammel, Lynch. Not sure how they're going to get a game with the other 100 players you're signing though. Perhaps Chelsea could be used as a feeder club?

Good, sell him and put in a 5.5 mil bid in for vossen!

Jackshutt mfc


10 Jul 2014 14:47:16
completely agree jackshutt but I've a feeling if we don't get him in this window that well get him next season for free as he seems desperate to join the mighty boro so let's wait and see :) UTB

borolionheart


Seriously, the club can't afford that much and I don't want him. We're a championship club. We need expierenced championship players not ridicously expensive gambles. that's why we need graham back. let's look at released players, like zamora or andy johnson for example, and scour the lower leagues for bargains. Only way we can keep within the ffp guidelines

marshall


I wonder if boro will get there 5 top targeted players. vossen, Graham Clayton, omeruo, juanfran?.

Or would it be a phone call to jose for chelsea loans.

My personal opinion is we need at least 7 new faces so far only tomas mejias

redrocket_123


10 Jul 2014 18:04:56
Marshall is talking sense. From a Burnley supporter, you don't want to spend big to try and get out the division. We are a championship club and I wouldn't want it any other way. We just had a good season last year. Just make sensible signings, no point getting carried away

shaunchippendale


10 Jul 2014 18:46:31
Zamora and Johnson didn't score half as much as Voss en put together last season and we could afford it if Jutkiewicz goes the real problem is if only 12,000 fans can be arsed to fork out for a ticket every week can we afford weekly wages

jimjones


Thank you burnley fan. Some boro boys think we're a big club, which we have never been. They were just an example. You can't compare vossen who plays in a worse league than scotland to the championship. Its a completely different kettle of fish. Look at van wolfswinkle. Scored goals everywhere he went. couldn't hit a barn door. Why gamble what little cash we have on a total unkown. Get someone in whos been doing it in the championship and you know can perform. Ticket sales aren't actually essential to a clubs finances these days. Yes extra sales generates a bit cash but the major money comes from sponsorship and mainly tv rights. Last word on vossen. Why does no one else want him? If he was half as good as people make out on here then a bigger club would take a punt on him. Truth is, no one else seems to want him and that says more than words to me.

marshall


10 Jul 2014 21:35:08
I've actually seen him play in person and he is a pleasure to watch. an all rounder who can score with his left, right and head.

You might have your doubts about the Belgian Jupiler Pro league but it has produced Lukaku, Dembélé, Dries Mertens and now even Origi.
We've watched him for two and half years so I'm pretty sure the club know what they're hopeful of buying.

JRM


10 Jul 2014 22:22:46
Part of me wants to agree with Marshall and the more I think of it Troy Deeney of Watford seems the better option for a similar fee

Jimjones


10 Jul 2014 22:35:12
You won't get Deeney for less then £8 million, he's already stated he doesn't want to leave and we don't need to sell

jamigilmore2


I can guarentee when we have a scout like gary gill we won't be interested in any above bring in doyle and ameobi the boro scouting network is garbage he should of been giving the boot with the rest of the deadwood gibbos blue eyed boy

11 Jul 2014 03:53:00
Jelle vossen will cum along with Jaunfran juke in talks with Burnley to to test him self in prem one thinks he's capable we should keep him pear him up and goals would of followed never mind utb in ak we trust

The new boro lad 86


Vossen absent from training and has accused Genks Chairman of trying to scupper his move to Boro. He has a contract until 2017, so we can't sign him in January for a free.
As far as being a waste of money as his league isn't very good look at the Belgium team and also look at the guys who have made it in the Premier league all cam from the same league. Obviously spending a lot on one player is a risk but compared with the prices quoted for English players its less of a risk if you ask me, and more importantly he has set his heart on Boro and wants to come none of the guys mentioned above want to come to Boro and in my opinion aren't as good so its a no brainer let's hope Gibbo pulls it off because if he doesn't get it done now we will lose the opportunity to another club like Brighton or west Ham.

craggsy1


Jelle vossen yet again has stated his desire to join the mighty boro! Away gibbo open your pocket he's basically begging you to come and get him! Put 6million euro bid in for him and get him here! Up the boro

Boromad86


11 Jul 2014 11:48:34
I think that all Boro fans will be shocked within the next two weeks with the players we have been in preliminary talks with over the last week.
Graham is still a possibility, Vossen also a possibility but it looks like they will only be backup options if Karanka is unable to lure his top two striking targets.
Assombalonga has been discussed as another backup option also.
I have no information on the names of the two top targets but I do know that the initial discussions have gone exceptionally well and the players are very interested in joining us. If anyone knows anymore about these players please post it.
All I am aware of is that if we can pull it off we will send a few shock waves through the division.

JackLewis2014


This vossen guy probably isn't even that good, we need quality he might be good but 6 million odd away could get better for that or 2 strikers

Sidgybean99


11 Jul 2014 13:44:26
some of you guys seem a bit daft. you've been in the championship for 5 years now. what's with all the "mighty" talk

shaunchippendale


Its worrying how NO-ONE else seems to want him. Why? If he was as good as you make out then someone else would show an interest. But there's absolutey none. Surely somethings off? We need expierenced championship players not people who will bankrupt the club. Its not worth the gamble. Weve already spent £1.5m on tomlin. I doubt there's any money left

marshall


11 Jul 2014 13:46:17
It seems Middlesbrough have agreed a deal for Real Murcia forward Kike Garcia.

Also the club are very hopeful of coming to a reasonable agreement with Genk for Vossen + plus additional add-ons.

JRM


Boro have signed Enrique Garcia Martinez - known as Kike for £1mil, rising to £3.5mil with add ons. Seems risky?

phillyd


What a shock haha! Kike signing for us for 3.5 million! Who is this lad? 23 goals last season? Anyone with info about him please let me know! Looks like vossen has no chance in coming to us after we spent that much on a striker! Nice one gibbo ha using your money for once! Up the boro

Boromad86


150 games 48 goals for murcia

smoggygooner


Come on boro if we could get vossen and kike up front and junafran for right back we will be a force in the championship.

richyboro


However I do believe that there is an other striker under the wood work like kike was to be signed that no one has mentioned yet.

richyboro


11 Jul 2014 17:01:53
Gibbo is not using his money 'for once' he spent £1,000,000 a month last season to keep the club afloat Gibbo isn't the problem and is one of the only 'proper' owners in the league you wouldn't want us to end up like Watford, Leeds, Sheffield Weds, Birmingham, Blackburn need I go on.

Jimjones


11 Jul 2014 17:08:30
kike deal is 1 million now, hardly going to break the bank. Vossen has made a come and get me plea to Boro too.
Clayton offer is being considered also, 2 million in total offered.
Bit of info on Kike, Spanish youth international where he played under Karanka, He is a targetman who is quick and has a very high work rate. To be very fair he is a better player than Danny Graham and on a lower weekly wage. For us he is a perfect signing. Juke fee agreed with Burnley for 1.5 million which could rise to 2 million on games played for them.
Karanka still looking at signing another Spanish striker, If this does fall through he will look to push a deal through for Vossen.

JackLewis2014



 

 

08 Jul 2014 12:32:45
It looks like Middlesbrough fc have missed out on bringing Kenneth Ormerou back on loan. I have it from a reliable source at Hull City that he is interested in joining them and that the lure of Premier league football is the main factor for his decision.
karanka is looking to pair Graham with Vossen if the deals can be done. He needs to offload Kamara and Juke before any forward players sign on the dotted line.
juanfran is still in talks with Middlesbrough and the club have agreed to give him another week to reconsider before moving forward with another fullback target, possibly Andre Yelling, USA international.

JackLewis2014


08 Jul 2014 14:15:27
Yedling is linked with Liverpool and Roma. For a player on 1.5 k a week he would have been a good purchase but he'll end up elsewhere.

JRM


I don't think ormerou will go to hull he will go to the boro where he is guarenteed 1st team football

gj12345


I still think ormerou will come back to the Boro as he has even said he wants to come and at boro he will play week in week out not just in europe like he will at hull

richyboro


Even if we don't get him there are many other young talent s to bring in on loan so I wouldn't worry

smoggygooner


09 Jul 2014 07:22:57
apparently the deal for Ormerou is already agreed with Hull City, he simply needs to sign.
I personally don't blame the lad, he will be a premier league star for years to come so it makes sense for him to play in the premiership with Hull now.
I'm sure we all wish him luck, he was superb last season.
On a plus, their seems to be more substance in the Yedling deal, his agents are in the UK speaking with several clubs and we are one of them.
Does anyone have any idea who the other striking targets are if we miss out on Vossen and Graham?

JackLewis2014


09 Jul 2014 12:17:44
I think omorou will stick to his word and join us again as he knows we are going for a promotion push and if he plays near enough every game and we get promoted its guna look better on him then playing 10 matches for hull and finishing 15th in the bpl, also vossen deal probably done as we expect to get him for £4million, Gibson must be off his rocker! So looks like the same old faces back again next season as Huddersfield won't sell clayton for our price, juanfran is off to Palermo as they offers 1.5million with add ons, so looks like Danny graham back for good and a few Chelsea lads,

Boromad86


If you look on the Hull websites there's no mention of Omorou at all and if he doesn't stick to his word I wouldn't want him back here.

Callaby32


09 Jul 2014 17:45:24
Garbage. his WC break finishes. Omerou will be checked over at Chelsea before heading here to reconvene with the team after the Spain trip. I'd put money on it.

JRM


09 Jul 2014 18:24:50
Would love to see Ken and Vossen back but doubt we have the financial clout to pull it off UTB

Jimjones


Vossen has never come to boro so how can he come back jim? But hopefully he will now.

richyboro


I stand corrected gents, apologies.
BIG Ken will be back on Teesside within 2 weeks. Hull can't guarantee Chelsea that he will be first choice this season.
Mourinho wants to get the most out of this season in terms of game time in England.
Danny Graham now looking at a deal with Burnley. Boro is still his first choice but his wage demands could prove the issue.
Vossen deal is DEAD. Boro have offered.3m with £900k upfront. genk want 6-7m.
Bamford looking likely now.

JackLewis2014


10 Jul 2014 08:10:00
Sorry Richyboro meant Omeruo to come back not Vossen my mistake. Anyways ssn thinks Burnley want Lukas Jutkiewicz or Danny Graham. Either way bad for Middlesbrough

Jimjones



 

 

07 Jul 2014 16:32:33
HBvL sport have reported that Middlesbrough have made a £4m bid for Jelle Vossen and want him to sign a 5 year contract. Genk are thought to be keen on the deal.

JRM


This rumour is true. I have seen the story myself on their website. A bit of google translate required mind!

Boroboy


07 Jul 2014 20:19:01
well boro are in for two unnamed strikers and if they fail moves for Vossen and Grayham will go ahead. Who are they. Also Kenneth Omerou is going to come back on loan as he prefers Middlesbrough and finish what
the has started. Also juanfran may still come back but if waiting for more offers to be tabled befor he makes a choice. Finally Chalobar may come back as well or Piazon. SO it is about to be busy at the riverside.

richyboro


07 Jul 2014 22:48:06
I've been told Nathan Aké (loan) is the alternative to Adam Clayton. Most of the money will be spent up front so midfield and RB could well be filled by loanees, all still ifs and buts though.

JRM


Well if anyone else had put this rumour on I would of told them were to but JRM is normally a useful source of information let's just hope ge comes and turns out to be quality and not an expensive mistake like alves

smoggygooner


For boro to actually get anywhere this season I think we should sign nathen ake to play along side grant, omorou back at cb, get Danny graham in for the bargain £1million and jelle vossen as he has told his club his first choice move is Teesside, which I think for a lad playing champions league football is very unselfish, and for that reason I would pay the £5million for him, then I'd offload juke, Hines, whitehead and Steele to get funding to get juanfran and a bit of money back from the vossen deal

Boromad86



 

 

05 Jul 2014 18:23:18
Middlesbrough have gone back in for Belgian striker jelle vossen and hope to complete a 3.5m move next week, karanka is also hoping to complete moves for kenneth ormero and Adam clayton

he was usually on the bench overrated

gj12345


06 Jul 2014 16:16:19
'gj12345' 'i watched him many times last season he was usually on the bench overrated'

vossen didn't make a single appearance from the bench last season

he started 49 games and scored 17 goals

jmc


06 Jul 2014 16:55:24
Surely you must be talking about the wrong player?

Vossen started most of the games he was available for. Also I wouldn't call him a waste of money. In the past 4 seasons he has scored 18, 25, 27, 24 goals that's including CL and 12 Belgian caps.

Would love this but I think his asking price would probably be much more with Belgians being in vogue.

JRM


06 Jul 2014 17:45:09
Last player you all wanted with a similar goal rate was one alfonso alves. How did that work out? If vossen was any good he'd have been snapped up by a bigger club than us by now

marshall


Jrm at least you talk sense he's worth nine million last month westham inquiry for hom and got put off so ots load ov tosh

The new boro lad 86


06 Jul 2014 19:24:16
Alves was a flop but in the Dutch league he had a better goal percentage than Luis Suarez at Ajax so it just goes to show that it's a matter of luck.

Personally we had our best chance of getting Vossen 2 years ago when he visited Rockcliffe. He's reported to be commanding a fee of 6m these days.

JRM


All youse calling alves this that and the other, he scored 10 goals in one season, his first ever time in the best league in the world, it would be tough for anyone!, and tbh he's a free agent has been since 2013, and yeah he may be 33 but from the lack of quality of our strikers I'd sign him back on cause I think he'd be unreal in the championship, bang them in for fun tbh

Boromad86


07 Jul 2014 11:25:24
This is much different to Alfonso Alves, Genk have produced strikers such and Lukaku and Benteke over the years and look where they are now and Alfonso flopped in the prem in a very poor boro team that got relagated. You can't even compare the two. Personally I would love Vossen and I believe he's worth the money and the risk

Sorry but the premier league isn't anywhere near the best league in the world. i'm actually enjoying being in the championship more. Better excitement, more honest players, two games a week and anyone can beat anyone. If he's been a free agent for over a year then that says it all doesn't it

Adam Clayton set to join Middlesbrough next week with Grant Leadbitter set to leave in the swap deal with Huddlesfield.

No way, would take at least £1.5m on top of that going to Huddersfield. Clayton has a year on his contract, he'll just run it down. Too good for Smoggies too.

Just had a look back through your old post, take it from your previous success rate with rumours, Clayton will not be signing for MFC

Clayton, Juanfran, Doyle and graham to join boro. Clayton will obviously choose to join boro as they are an ambition team pushing for promotion whereas Huddersfield are at best a avarage - mid table team kicking a sack of air around a pitch

What do we see in danny graham yea if you get him for one million not bad but he ain't the goal scorer we need just don't understand any one

The new boro lad 86


I forgot that just how good a side the Smoggies are, Clayton won't run his contract down and make himself for life to move to a massive club like the might Boro.
At this moment in time the only difference between Huddersfield and the mighty Boro is Gibson's pockets.

I think Graham will turn good borolad86 for me we have the 2 best widemen in the league so he will get the service

Maybe the fact he averages a goal every other game, sets up chances for other people and gives our attack some focus. Apart from that he's carp lol

Marshall


Yea ok if we get him for reported mill then he's worth it just don't think he's the 20 goals u need to get out of the championship utb

The new boro lad 86


Dont get me confused with the bloke above posing to be me aim the original borolad86, any ways. Danny Graham will do it for us in this league, anybody who can bang in 20 in a season for 1 million is a steal. The problem is some boro fans expect to much, yes we have to be optimistic but Danny playing with tomlin over the corseof a 38 game season can do the job fine

Boro lad 86


Why would they only play a 38 game season, when they play 46 games a season in the championship :P

billiboroboy


Sorry mate I mean 46 it was a typing error but same thing applies

Boro lad 86


Ok boro lad 86 seen danny play laods last season he's not the striker we need if the juke got played with tomlin u would see goals we played the juke on his own play him with tomlin let danny sweat he's poor anyway

Seriously, he gets a goal every other game. What more can the lad do. Some people just can't see the good, just the misses. And jukes had plenty of chances. Works hard but never a 20 goal striker

marshall


Everything from he club suggests we have all but signed him, completely agree with Marshall
