Huddersfield, Middlesbrough and Fulham all in the race to sign Peterborough fans favourite Ben Alnwick

Green0


13 Oct 2014 23:11:29
Lol, this is rubbish. Alnwick has been brilliant for Posh this season. He won't leave yet, just settled into the area and has said how happy he is at the club. After a year or so of turmoil in his life had said he wants to settle down and enjoy his football. Terrible rumour!

Middlesbrough will look to bring in Lewis Baker on a 93 day loan window opens on the 9th August, while the club will be fairly quiet on the incoming front, there will be a lot of outgoings, with the club looking to shift Fewster, Williams, Morris, Bennett, Halliday, Kitching and Ripley out on loan, with academy players Jones, Maloney, Cooke and Jackson will look for a similar oppurtunity.

Middlesbrough have signed winger Yanic Wildschut from Dutch side Heerenveen for an undisclosed fee

Jordanleeprice2


Vossen and Wildscut in 2 more hopeful before close.

Duffman


4 to leave including Seb Hines and two youngsters on loan

Duffman


Any idea who the two are?

boro boro


And seb hines is set to leave for birmingham

boro boro


Steele to Blackburn - Hines to Birmingham two youth players loaned out.
Two final signings hitting snags may not now happen

Duffman


Given with Irish squad which complicates any agreement / discussion. Understand young midfielder on season loan is still possible but may be emergency after deadline.

Duffman


Out - Steele, Hines, Williams, fewster, also the evening gazette said ledesmas leaving? Doubt he will but that's wierd, also junior mondal to be loaned to Hartlepool till January to gain experience after his hat-trick burst against u18 Bolton side - in - vossen, wildschut, baker and also shay given as second choice keeper, and also to train mejias

Boromad86


01 Sep 2014 18:33:39
Ledesma also being allowed to leave and currently thrashing out deal with unnamed club

Duffman


Lewis Baker not expected to now sign today but Boro hope to push through next week in emergency extension. Given not going to happen. Two in Vossen and Wildschut two out Hines and Steele, other loans, kids, going out next week.

Duffman


Ledesma any leave he's class I will be very mad if he leaves

Sidgybean99


Brilliant buys if you ask me, I think all 3 will be in the starting line up for huddersfield game as reach hasn't Realy been up to much in the latest games so he should be given time out to let wildschut show his capability, also I'd shot vossen in for tomlin and okay vossen behind kike, and I'd drop mejias to 3 choice, then Blackman as no1 and konstontopolas as no2, looking like a decent team now

Boromad86


03 Sep 2014 07:39:49
Boromad86. Couldn't agree more but Mejias won't be dropped. I was told by a player in the club that Karanka promised him the number 1 spot before he signed.
I'd have dropped him after Leeds, then he did it again against Sheffield Wednesday. Once is ok, twice not good enough. He's weak and the teams lack of confidence in him in evident. What's even scarier is that he is as bad in training yet Karanka still picks him. Blackman is a great keeper, fingers crossed he picks him.

JackLewis2014


We can't give anyone a free ride in this game, it will eventually cost us our goal - promotion! Mejias can be decent but he needs his confidence building up again. I think Vossen is only really an out and out striker, i'm unsure if he can play the number 10 role. I think its between him and kike for the strikers spot. Bamford is a like for like replacement for Tomlin though. Karanka took off Tomlin for bamford in the last game so I think that's how we'll set up. I'd take baker as we could do with another centre mid option. I don't know how other fans feel but i'm unconvinced about whitehead? Leadbitter has been one of the brightest sparks this season however.

Shay Given looks set to join the Boro.

DV


Yet another player about to sign for Boro, if they had signed all the players posted on this site, they would have a squad of 100 players or more.

ADE


Really I really hope this is true but I doubt it

If only

boro boro


Can't see that happening unless Steele goes the other way But we have" freed jelle vossen we've freeed jelle vossen"

Jason Steel is likely to leave on loan until January, several Championship teams interested.

The club have approached Genk to resume the deal for Jelle Vossen, but only for Middlesbrough's stated price. Bamford also very close now.

JRM


Why does everybody say a Year long loan. Does that mean he can play for someone for the first few games of next season.
It is a 'most of the season long loan'!

ianmoore


Finally bamfords a Boro player he's signed says on site, I don't rate him hope he's as good as all this hypes built up to

Sidgybean99


29 Aug 2014 18:07:11
If it's for the same price we already offered we got no chance n I think they made that pretty clear but here's hoping that's true but I very much doubt it

BoroLionHeart


Patrick bamford now a middlesbrough player until the end of the season!
Utb

Jackshutt mfc


Bamford signed, vossen unlikely, andy delort on his way

Phileas smog


Id have Jon Walters and mickail smith here

Sidgybean99


Steele on his way to reading as McCarthy has moved to QPR

LLboro


I hope delort is on his way but can't see it he's just a dream too good for us and other clubs have more more money than us to spend on him

Sidgybean99


Jelle Vossen to be a deadline day signing for the Boro wait and see the last big piece of the Karanka jigsaw

boromad


Wigan in for delort

smoggygooner


The surprise from karanka is the one player that just will not go away, I am pleased to say it will be Jelle Vossen.

smoggiephil


No ledesma and bamford or Ayala god knows why Hines is playing worst player don't know why he's at the club been waiting for ledesma to come back and bamford to come then he doesn't play then!

30 Aug 2014 18:43:17
boro to complete vossen and wildschut deals in next 24 hous accoriding to the evening gazzete with vossen coming on loan then if we get promted we will sign him at end of season.

richyboro


30 Aug 2014 19:07:55
Jelle Vossen and Yanic Wildschut are going to light his league up. Both are excellent. Only seen Jelle play in person, but he's one hell of a player.

We need both desperately after today. UTB.

JRM


I think you'll find it's til January bit Vossen almost certain will arrive either on loan or permanent

Sidgybean99


30 Aug 2014 19:20:48
Boro hope to sign both Vossen and Wildschut in the next 24 hours

parmo army


31 Aug 2014 07:05:53
KARANKA is looking to bring in 4 players before the window slams shut.
Vossen, loan (fee agreed for end of season.purchase). Wildschutt, purchase. Lewis baker, loan and the signing for me that will be huuuuuuuge, Shay Given, purchase.

JackLewis2014


Wildshut is travelling to England today (sunday) to discuss his permanent transfer after sitting on the bench for his last game for Herenveen on Saturday

boromad


If Given re-sighns we should use him to improve steele. mejias is terrible and crowds are low we aren't going anywhere.

Get In Ohara is class

Kai Kamara leaves Leaves Boro by mutual agreement

No he's not n O'hara is no good he's a sick note

I don't think bamford is the answer we aren't going up now. UTB IN AK WE TRUST

Official Aitor Karanka


29 Aug 2014 13:23:43
Bamfords an absolute joke I rather he didn't come go after other targets he clearly had no solid interest in coming it he would be here all we have been fed for weeks is he will sign in 24 hours he needs more time no one actually has a straight answer the fact is he will come here as a last resort because no one better will want him I'd rather have a permanent signing than a loan glad Kamara has gone bloke was a muppet cared more about Instagram than his career

Smogfather


Bamford is class just wait and see but I do agree in a way we still need one more striker and suso please Liverpool we will get the play offs forrest will storm the league well that's my view utb need to spend some money

The new boro lad 86


Ohara is a donkey stay away no good wolves don't want him haha

The new boro lad 86


Shame about Kamara leaving but it was obviously going to happen after he was left out of the squad so far this season. He had the potential to be quite good at this level but disappointing we couldn't get a fee for him. £900,000 is a lot for one season but understandable if its to free up some wages. As for Bamford, Karanka has said the lad wants to come and has done for the past 2 weeks and there's a little issue to sort out. If Mclaren has came out and said boro have got a good young player then surely that indicates he's coming here. After how he's performed during his previous loan spells you'd think he was keen to take him back to derby. I think a deal for danny graham will be pushed through towards the end of the window. Think I read on the gazette website a deal has already been agreed for him throughout the summer and just needs to be rubber stamped if boro do decide to take him.

BoroJack


Bamford is a joke he's not even that good acting like he's ronaldo!!rather have someone else we need all the strikers we can get now though I reckon and thogjt we were selling Steele for 3 mill bet we loan him out and let him go for free next season which is 2, 3 mill wasted and there's nothing wrong with Steele used to be great til Karanka came

Sidgybean99


How many times have you watched bamford play? Reserve judgement till you'll seen him play. Enough boo boys supporting this club.

marshall


Steele was ok at best, I know he's a homegrown player and we always want local lads at the club but I don't think steele has the experience yet as he's only 24 and also the quality. He can be a really good keeper in the future but for now I couldn't trust him to perform week in, week out in a championship promotion campaign. When we got shay given on loan last year, you could see the difference in quality between him and all the other keepers at the club. we need to play our most experienced keepers in goal which I would imagine be dimi. I was suprised to hear steele could have gone but has decided to stay. All very well but the spare wages and any fee could have been useful to strengthen before the window closes. UTB!

BoroJack



 

 

28 Aug 2014 12:07:07
Middlesbrough have completed the season-long loan of Spurs RB Ryan Fredericks. Challenge Damiá for the place in the team.

Hopefully Bamford in next. Yanic Wildschut could arrive before the deadline too.

JRM


Bamford is a boro player jmr its all done would rather have suso over yannic if we could

The new boro lad 86


28 Aug 2014 16:22:33
Once he signs the papers he will, don't want to jinx things haha.

JRM


Kie kamaras contract has been canceled, so looks like Bamford will be signed and another striker will be expected on deadline day as we have lost 4 strikers now, role on reading UTB!

Boromad86


Ssn report Wolverhampton still in for Bamford I wonder what the surprise is from ak hope its jelle haha

The new boro lad 86


Stupidity with the Kamara shenanigans bought for a mill he was strong tall powerful had a good shot on him scored a few and was a good link up striker because we should play 2 upfront it's lost money again and now we have 1 striker at the club need more!

Sidgybean99


Bamford has already chose us over wolves stop panicking doubt karanka would of let kamara go if no one was coming in UTB

Tow


28 Aug 2014 22:21:38
Kamara was a total horse, had little skill and the club just wouldn't tolerate his behaviour. He was never worth 900k, I'm glad he's gone. Sidgy there are better players to come for Boro.

JRM


I think he's clearing the wage bill for someone special

smoggygooner


Fantastic business sense to get rid of Kamara, yes they have lost £900k but there was no chance of retrieving that in any case. Say his wages are £10k a week then what would be the point in us continuing to pay that for the remaining year of his contract and then him leave for free anyway. In my opinion we have saved around £500k which we can use to pay a new strikers wages.

smoggiephil


Wonder who the special player is iam hopeing vossen but it will bw someone out of the blue like the rest ov ak transfers utb

What do you think guys?.

Anyone know anything all gone quiet at the boro on transfers any news on suso even a loan would be excellent he's a talent and could be good for competition.

Middlesbrough have won the race to sign french striker andy delort for a fee of 3.5m

Phileas smog


Hope this is true but Wigan wanted him aswell so they will probably get him

Sidgybean99


Boro have won no race its took 1year to het Bamford and still don't have him so we ain't won no race for Andy derlot

The new boro lad 86


Bamford is boro player and will make debut on Saturday.

A Rival championship team has out bid wigan who that club is I don't know

29 Aug 2014 11:14:39
Please don't ********

Jimjones

{Ed029's Note - No foul language, please!


Apparently its wolves chasing Andy delort. Boro should definitely go get him. Not to make the mistake of buying off youtube, but he does seem to have tremendous skill and some of the goals he has scored are breathtaking. He's only 22 also so it would be an ideal age to sign someone. If kike can come to boro from a second division and make the impact he has, then I think delort can do the same. He was offered a trial by borussia dortmund and bordeux wanted him but he turned them down saying basically those that rush themselves to the top can damage their careers. Which is pretty much always the case, what did zaha do at man u? bostock at tottenham? he has scored 24 goals in 36 appearances last season. enough said.

Why would he turn up at the stadium if this is true he's either buying a shirt or getting a ticket

Can't be true he's far too good for us

James morrison what did sing to you.

Real to me!

If he did he will have been sat with Danny Graham, Woody and a few of the old lads who we're watching last night.

JRM


Don't know why we haven't got suso yet he's a top talent with a bright future. Also how come we are conceding so many goals. abella is rubbish we need to spend big we were so close to sighning asombolonga he's been great meanwhile our leaky defense and poor keeper are conceding like its going out of fashion. WE NEED TO IMPROVE OUR GOAL DIFFERECE

26 Aug 2014 09:43:51
Good call JackLewis2014 Bamford is due to have a medical this morning and sign before lunch

Jimjones


You said yesterday he's off to reading? Away lad make your mind up, bit obvious he was always coming to the boro by all the hype from karanka about him, hope he lives up to expectation, kike needs more help then tomlin upfront

Boromad86


26 Aug 2014 21:10:16
Is it true Bamford to Wolverhampton ans boro bringing damny donky graham not a fan of his we must do better look at forrest showing ambition and will storm the league I think must spend gibbo cum on y will none join us

The new boro lad 86


Or well just rubbish ak just said Bamford almost done thank god stay away from danny only want us because his girlfriend from the boro he bin us for Sunderland ok pl money so what he can rot at Sunderland for me he's no good

The new boro lad 86


27 Aug 2014 18:46:05
Boromad86. Apparently this Bamford deal has been on and off several times already.
it was even on sky that he was going to Reading.
Scares me how many issues we've had already this season with paperwork not arriving in time etc.
Bamford will make a huge difference, like Tomlin he is a match winner from nothing.

Danny Graham will arrive at Middlesbrough on a season long loan from Sunderland before the window slams shut, boro will also sign two further players to boost they're squad.

smoggiephil


Im not slamming tactics but 4 4 2 is a must kike and a partner upfront. We have currently no partners at the moment.
Burnley vokes and ings
Les/city nugent and vardy

You'll find promotional teams have partners

redrocket_123


Hope a decent keepers coming in.

marshall


Need mores strikers quality desperate and need to play 2 upfront with 2 wingers

Sidgybean99


25 Aug 2014 18:22:54
There appears to be a few more options on the list ahead of Graham. Personally I don't think Danny would be the right fit. His £40k a week wages are a turn off too.

I can't wait to have Ledesma and Carayol back. I hope we bring in two strikers before the deadline, that would be a really sign of intent from the club.

JRM


25 Aug 2014 18:59:16
boro back in for kevin doyle and sammy ameobi

gj12345


Red rocket absolutely right mate, been saying it for ages could have kept juke and partnered him with kike, any striker benefits forom a partner just hope we get another quality striker like kike, ngog is free eg someone like that to play along side graham won't be good enohhh

Sidgybean99


We should get Becchio. I know his wages are fairly high, but I'd trust him to do the job

jdog99


I'm confused sidgybean99 you said quality striker and ngog in the same sentence

I know I mean a quality striker but something totally different ngog is just another option on a free

Your welcome to John guidetti. we had on loan at stoke city last season. Over weight and slow. Only made it off the bench a couple of times.

alanandjackie


22 Aug 2014 18:32:17
Suso that's funny I got slated when I said boro in for him few weeks ago hope we fo get him now just to prove that person rong he's worth more than 2mill try about 5 so would be a lone I would think and buy the city lad he was class on the dutch league but so was a lot ov others we have had would get jelle in he will get goals and most fans want him

The new boro lad 86


Not going to get Guietti cause he played for Feyenoord last year on loan and scored 20 in 23 apps so they've put a 4 million bid in can't compete with that we need a quality attiker though but not willing to pay the money

Sidgybean99


22 Aug 2014 20:13:37
Soo guys if you had a choice who would you sign bamford, graham, vossen, guidetti or ricardo vaz te.?

redrocket_123


22 Aug 2014 21:48:05
Vossen first choice, graham is second choice.

John388


Vossen and vaz need more than two strikers

The new boro lad 86


Vaz te

Sidgybean99


Vossen - graham - Bamford - vaz te - doyle

Boromad86


Jelle and vaz te all the way Bamford wanted to cum he would of we want player that want to play for the badge vossen Graham only wants us because want to be back to Newcastle

The new boro lad 86


News genk 3 gent 2 Friday last night game jelle vossen did not feature in the match day sqaud lead to believe he is deep in negotiations with a club.

Id choose vossen aswell.

redrocket_123


Graham, guidette, bamford, vossen. Personally i'd go for davis from bolton. All the others just seem a bit similar to what we already have

marshall


Vossen is in negations and info from pal hope your right

The new boro lad 86


Anyone know anything about suso top player hope its all true

The new boro lad 86


After vossens behaviour regarding his moving clubs is anyone else worried? Our squad seems together and playing for each other with everyone on the dame page. i'm kinda worried that an egotistical, childish and selfish person will destroy that. When bigger clubs come in for him will he do the same here? Just my opinion but I think he's a huge gamble which could backfire

marshall


Worst game I've seen today man terrible need 2 strikers upfront and 2 wingers it's a must

Sidgybean99


Bamford going to forrest looks like graham on way to boro roumer has it vossen also a possibility

The new boro lad 86


25 Aug 2014 08:18:26
It looks like Bamford is going to Reading.
Mainly to be closer to home.
karanka is now looking to bring in Suso and has re-opened talks with Genk for Vossen after it emerged the deal was dead 3 weeks ago.
If those deals fail to materialise expect to see a deal for Graham pushed through.

JackLewis2014


Vossen already agreed a deal with Boro its signed but the price is the hold up so if he's in discussions with a club its not Boro. Boro still have to agree a fee once that's done he has to do a medical and that is that, I would still go for Bamford (he still hasn't decided yet) or Guidetti otherwise it would be Graham for me his girlfriend is from Boro that's why he wants to come here

craggsy1


Bit of a slap in the face for us and mourihio after he said he would prefer him to come here as the training regime and set up is pretty much the same as chelskis and it would help hom in the future

smoggygooner



 

 

20 Aug 2014 21:40:11
Leeds forward Matty Smith the latest striker linked with Middlesbrough

Jimjones


He just signed a new contract so I very much doubt this.

smoggiephil


This is true as Bamford has turned us down to go back to Forest

ianmoore


Just signed a 3 year deal the other day nice try though

smoggygooner


After the bolton game I wouldn't mind having craig davis. Gave us the run around all night, was a strong presence and was mightly impressive.

marshall


Your Jong bamford can get lost anyway never rated him but were meant to be getting Chelsea lads where after they aparth form omeruo and we desperately need another quality striker

Sidgybean99


21 Aug 2014 12:57:08
I'm telling you, you don't win anything with kids. Everything we did at the end of last season came through ledesma and graham. Must get graham back.

John388


21 Aug 2014 21:56:49
You heard of omeruo john388?
Top quality defender way too good for this league

Boro man


Bamford hasn't played for forrest so how can he go back to them

smoggygooner


22 Aug 2014 05:35:17
'Smoggygooner' no offence but know your facts before you comment. P Bamford was at Forest since he was a tod then moved to chelsea and has been in and out on loan since he arrived. I would gladly have him at boro but don't see him as a strong replacement for kike. UTB

Milli100


Why are people knocking Bamford, the kid has incredible potential and Mourinho needed time to decide if he was going to be needed in the chelsea First team squad this season.
No he isn't Kike but he will add much needed depth to our squad and we would be lucky to have him.
The deal isn't off and he hasn't turned us down, he needs time to decide where he wants to go. That isn't something to take personally as Boro fans, he has his family to think about.

JackLewis2014


he never ever signed a professional contract with forrest just on books as a kid

smoggygooner


I agree with jacklewis2014 he's an exceptional talent and would only make us stronger

Middlesbrough defender Christian Burgess has joined lower league side Peterborough United on a months loan

Jimjones


He has joined on a four year deal a fee of 100k

redrocket_123


20 Aug 2014 10:45:17
Four year deal. Disappointed we couldn't keep him here. However 100k is a good deal in the short term. Good luck to Burgey at Peterborough!

Smallwood should finalize his permanent deal to Rotherham for 175k today.

Hines, Kamara and Steel next out. With some new faces imminent for us this week.

JRM


20 Aug 2014 12:35:26
Can't see Hines being allowed to leave after his return to the side under Karanka having produced some impressive preformance

Jimjones


20 Aug 2014 17:06:10
Seb 'bamby-legs' Hines has only featured because of injuries and no alternatives. He's on the out-goings list with Steel, Kamara and the youngsters set for loans.

We can do so much better.

JRM


Usually takes a bit more than a handful of good performances before changing your mind on a player, maybe if he's still doing good in November

maiakaat


Just a question Boro fans who is your 1st choice GK?

Baz_Tyke


Mejias

Boromad86


21 Aug 2014 01:52:59
Mejias

tommy40996


Dont rate the spanish lad one bit. Looks like a major weak point. So i'd say either dimi or steele

marshall


Dimi is our number 1 gk in my opinion. Mejias might be decent but was largely to blame at leeds, even before the goal he was flapping about. Dimi is the most experienced gk we have and seems a lot more composed in goal than mejias. Steele is third choice in my opinion, I always thought he wasn't that great when he was our number 1. I'd rather the club move him on this summer, I'd think you could get a couple million for him which could be used to get a very good player either now or inJanuary

BoroJack


Cheers just curious always thought it was Steele

Baz_Tyke


So did we, Steele is our best keeper just AK lost all his trust in him as he got sent off in AK's first game last year, only played 1 game since

Boromad86


And rightly so, it won't be personal but if we want to get promoted AK needs to make tough choices. when Joe hart went through his bad spell, they took him out the team, regained his confidence and is now number 1 at man city & for england. Every single point in this league is vital. When the leagues finished in may and 2 or 3 points make the difference, you'll think We Definately should of played that player instead of the other in that game we lost. Its no good thinking "oh we have 43 games left" we have to win the majority of those games!

BoroJack


Boro Jack if your agreeing with penalising Steele then what's the excuse for Majis against villareal and Leeds he did identical mistakes and palmed the ball straight to the opposition who score. Dimi against QPR big mistake you can't just blame Steele. Tuesday night Mijas flapped and punched a ball straight out and again we where lucking it didn't end up in the net. I think Steele must have said sumit out of place to be put out the way he is.

chazlad1970


Which is why I think dimi is our best keeper. ok he might have made a mistake in the past, one I was unaware off, but he is at least the most consistent keeper we have. Last few games last season for example. Weve lost again 3-2 today, that's 5 goals conceded in our Last 3 league games, i'd be suprised if he starts in the next one, whether he was at fault or not. Also the point I made goes to every player in the squad, if Their not performing they need to be dropped, that goes for friend, leadbitter, adomah, omeruo and even kike.

Belgian international striker jelle vossen has agreed a deal to sign for middlesbrough. His club genk are resigned to the fact that they will lose him for nothing next year so are reluctantly accepting a lower offer from boro after vossen told them he wants to move to teesside, both clubs are haggling over the fee however boro are holding all the cards as they know the player has his heart set on a move, expect this to go through as well as the imminent double swoop on chelsea for bamford and baker

Phileas smog


If this is good info I would welcome him with open arms as he is a good player. He was not in squad playing Zulte today.

Gazboro


can we just move on and put this rumour to bed now. Its boring now

marshall


If we've agreed a deal then we better get him we've agreed deals with loads of players then they collpase

Sidgybean99


Vossen has a contract till 2017

Tow


He wasn't in the squad playing Zulte today because he doesn't play for Gent - he plays for Genk! He played yesterday, full 90 minutes

Middlesbrough still very much interested but only at a certain price. Hoping to do a deal with Genk towards the end of the transfer window.
Patrick Bamford in the bag which is great news, but they want a third striker.

19 Aug 2014 13:29:50
Tow: vossens contract runs out next summer and he's able to sign a pre contract with other clubs in January however I don't believe we will be signing him before the close of this window as Genks heels are dug in n they still think they'll get a higher fee before the window closes. If boro have any business sense they'll wait til January to get him to sign a pre contract

Borolionheart


Jelle Vossen of Genk has a contract until June 2017. He extended it in 2012. Google Jelle Vossen contract and even in dutch its clear he is contracted until then. It also says June 2017 on transfermarkt. co. uk. £4 million is the least you could hope to sign him for he has just under 3 years left on his contract! Sign him if we can get him but with Kike and hopefully bamford coming in, getting a place would be difficult. At this time Graham at £1mil seems the most sensible buy. I worked out the other day Boro have very roughly spent £7.5m this summer and brought in around £5m from sales. With £2.5m already outlayed, £4m seems too much unless we sell other players. I think Steele could go, I don't think he's going to get a look in this season and possibly kei kamara also even though I still think Kamara can contribute to the team in some way, despite criticising boro over the summer.

BoroJack


What is happening with Kamara? Is he still on international duty? Never heard a thing about him all summer.

Yeah cause he's guna pick struggling Blackpool over promotion chasing middlesbrough! Also the aitor Jose connection is strong! Bet he'd lend us kurt zouma if we could afford his wages!

Like I said a few weeks ago this deal won't happen. The club will offer him a new and improved deal.

JRM


Tbh if we are serious about promotion, I would not let George go for any price this year! He scares teams when they see him in the squad, tall, strong and confident left back who's not shy to run the wings and be an attacker! He's guna be one of the best defends to never play for england!, best money we've spent in years on that lad, but don't you think bringing husband in was a clue to him moving on? I Realy hope not, best defender we've had since south gate! UTB

Boromad86


14 Aug 2014 07:01:25

Interest building in friend with only one year left on his contract

utboro


Get him a new contract now and if he wants more wages give him them he's too good to let go and worth a extra wages

Sidgybean99


I can see friend going, the club would rather get 3-4m than him leaving for free next year. I can't see him signing a new contract unless boro put a clause in saying he can go to a prem club for a certain amount.

smoggiephil


£4m for friend could be too much to turn down. Last year of contract so could lose him for nothing in 4 months time if he doesn't want to sign a new contract

marshall


I think £4m is a good price. Might think Husband brought in to replace Friend?

I would like to see him stay and it will be interesting to see if Gibbo will continue to bank roll Karanka and offer a new contract to George!

Borosugs


Yes but if boro get promoted I believe that he would sign new contract at the end of the season.

richyboro


He's priceless 4 mill is rubbish for what he's worth, we should give him an extra few grand a week

Sidgybean99


13 Aug 2014 16:02:55
But if we where to get promotion this season that price would surely double or treble, I say keep him try to get him to sign a new deal I' am sure he wants to stay. All the team is missing now is another striker and a couple of kids from Chelsea to stand in for injuries and we are laughing personally I'd love us to go and get Voosen I think for the price we'd pay for him its a bargain look at the lad Britt what ever it is from Peterborough to Forrest over 5 mill untested at this level ( I know voosen is too but older more experience played in champions league all adds up ) come on Boro last piece of the jigsaw.

Callaby32


4m for a championship player in the last year of his contract would be very, very hard to turn down. Especially since signing husband. For 4m i'd sell him

marshall


13 Aug 2014 19:40:13
The club are currently working on handing George a new and improved deal. There is nothing to these rumours.

JRM


Sidgy, its not all about money, he will wanna play in prem and so why sign a contract tieing him down to a club that might get promoted when he can go to a club already in the prem. £4m is good money as he can sign for someone else in january for nothing, albeit he would have to see the season out at boro.

smoggiephil


I know he is a footballer and no one can turn down the prem opportunity, but I think cause of the fans connection to George, he'd never leave us on a free, if he wanted to leave I think he'd to the decent thing and leave this month so we get money, he's a good lad our George! At least he'll be here for the Leeds match! UTB

Boromad86


The will be a day that George Friend will have to leave us but hopefully not this season. I think Boro need to offer George a new contract tomorrow, he's played fantastically, he's a good role model and professional and he deserves a new contract. He is usually on Late kick off on BBC and he always comes across as very humble and honest, and I would think that he is optimistic and he would like to stay. That said if he decided against a new contract, £4million would be a very good deal for all parties, knowing we signed him for £100,000 from Doncaster.

This will be another interesting one and will show our ambition. If Karanka is speaking the truth and wants two players for every position, we do need another RB. I heard that his work permit might take a while though.

12 Aug 2014 09:30:13
Adam Clayton will complete his move to Middlesbrough today in a deal worth £2m with add-ons included. It's taken awhile but he should pass his medical this afternoon.

Jacob Butterfield has already agreed his move in the opposite direction to Huddesfield for £750k plus add-ons.

JRM


£2m for an average championship footballer? Far, far to much. Got to be honest this deal doesn't impress me. Might be proved wrong but i'd rather go back in for chabolah and keep the money till jan and get him for next to nothing.

marshall


Bad decision if you ask me, would much rather us Invest the money in weaker parts of the squad and keep Butterfield, I feel he has a lot more too offer this season. Although, I still believe Aitor knows what he's doing and trust him doing so, just hope he's right about this one too.

Boro_Andy


I think Butterfield is a steal he should be worth more than Clayton bad mive

Sidgybean99


What's the add ons if huddersfield get promoted? Haha - bet butterfield is gutted, guna be one of our best seasons yet and he's been shot out what a joke, hope clayton lives up to expectations after all this trouble, not impressed with him so far tbh, bad attitude, but if he proves good enough in the 90 minutes on the pitch then that's all that matters - UTB

Boromad86


Chalobah has already gone out in loan somewere Clayton is a good player and more suited to aks style of play than butterfield

Tow


So guys I've been looking at stats on Clayton and butterfeild over there career and adam clayton tops it.

Soo I started compering clayton to leadbitter and I was surprised that clayton comes out on top again.

redrocket_123


Spoken to a Hudds fan, Clayton was their best player by a chunk last year, he was shocked they would sell him. Butterfield barely did anything for us. I think £750k (when you consider Butterfield money) for an impact player over a squad player is not such a bad deal.
Got to trust Aitor, his signings (like Kike) look pretty good so far!

Borosugs


You are getting one of the best midfield players in the Championship. Don't forget, this kid came through Man City and will prove a massive hit at Boro. Shame that Huddersfield are losing him. I suspect he's going for the money, not to improve himself. I'm surprised Brighton did not come back for him, unless he did not want to move South.

puertouk


Nice to see some genuine comments from puertouk. I think other Hudds fans on here are playing down how annoyed they are.

Anyone who has seen the photos of Clayton with his beard dyed can see he is trying to entertain the fans and I am certain he could be a great fans favourite at the boro.

IKWT

Borosugs


12 Aug 2014 18:08:41
Don't worry there is still cash in the pot to recruit upfront! The club are still working on another striker and winger + a few Chelsea loanees.

Chalobah has rejected coming back to us.

I like Butterfield. He looked sharp in pre-season but Aitor obviously doesn't think he fits. I will be expecting big things from Clayton, alongside Leadbitter it could be a strong engine in the middle.

Huddersfield have sacked manager Mark Robins after his first game in charge ended in an embarrassing 4-0 home defeat to Bournemouth! For this purpose surely Clayton won't be entering and Butterfield won't be leaving, for the moment anyway! Looks like Damia Abella has passed his medical just waiting for international clearance and should play against Leeds next Saturday!

tommy40996


According to press reports today we are close to a loan deal for Chelsea midfielder Lewis Baker. Hope this is true as he is an outstanding young talent and will be a big player for us.

If all the Clayton rumours are to be believed I think we should pull out of the deal, we only want players who are committed to the club. Butterfield has already shown in his reluctance to leave that he wants to be part of the club. Personally I would play him and leadbitter as the 2 holding midfielders and bin whitehead.

Either way the £2m earmarked for Clayton deal should surely be spent on another striker!

Clayton chaos, after speaking with Boro, he doesn't want to go.
Not sure what it means to the Butterfield deal. Sound like Clayton's not over impressed with the Boro fans comments about wanting to keep Butterfield, doesn't feel loved?
Rumour in Huddersfield was Butterfield signed last night, not official though.
I'd be shocked if we still got Butterfield and Clayton didn't go.
This really needs sorting, it's not good for anyone.

This deal has been ridiculous.
Boro fans are loyal to Butterfield, he has been a cracking player in glimpses.
I'd ideally have them both however if it meant we lose Butterfield to get Clayton I'd rather pull the plug and bring in a loan player from Chelsea instead.

Planet Zog implodes. Well who could have foreseen that? Butterfield was Robin's project so hopefully that sees an end to that nonsense. Having seen they way we did not give Birmingham a shot on target whilst having 14 ourselves, do we really need Clayton? Would have been a cricket score but for their goalie.
Bigger fish to catch before September I think!

Celtic to move for Jason Steele to replace Fraser Forster who is due to sign for Southampton in the coming days. Fee for Steele rumoured to be around £2-£2.5m plus add ons.

Kei Kamara also linked with a move back to the MLS in the next week to ten days, just got to hope this deal goes through as he is surplus to requirements at the Riverside. Boro are hoping to recoup around £500k for the donkey.

Been told that the fee for Butterfield is £750k rising to £1m based on appearances. Sorry to see him go as he is a much better player than whitehead.

If all 3 deals are completed the funds (approx £4m) are to be put towards a left winger and striker that AK has been chasing all summer.

Loan deals for Bamford and Saville have stalled for different reasons. Mourinho is still to sanction the Bamford deal and saville is reluctant to move north. The saville deal is a short term loan with the view to a permanent deal, similar to tomlin last season.

AK has also enquired about Nathan Ake but mourinho sees him as part of the first team squad for this season after impressing in pre-season.

Despite signing Abella we are still looking for a second right back. Lowton deal proved too expensive and the move for Vrsajevic is proving difficult due to work permit issues.

Looks like being an interesting few weeks ahead but I think we would all agree that the squad is looking the strongest it has been for years. Particularly if we can bag the winger and striker Karanka has identified

Smogmonster


I have faith in karanka and the way the boro have gone about they're business this year has been good. So we may have to sacrafice butterfield but its only so we can bring in the targets that karanka has laid out, so far I feel his signings have been good although time will tell, butterfield was only a bit part player last season anyway. Well i'm off for a few pints before heading to the riverside, happy new season and all the best! UTB!

smoggiephil


09 Aug 2014 11:33:43
Good stuff Smogmonster.
I hear the Celtic offer has been made, but they only value Steele at 1m.
Barring the conclusion of the Clayton deal, Bamford should be here next week but I gather Saville would prefer to stay down south, alerting Brentford and Bournemouth.
By all accounts we will sign Graham this week after dropping interest in Vossen.
This will leave additional funds for a winger, all of the talk inside club is that this will be a marquee signing.
Anyone got an idea who this is?

JackLewis2014


Going to the game today season ticket holder very disappointed all ready with the lineups no omeruo or butterfiled or Rhys Williams seriously need to get more players looking at the bench it's terrible no options left I hope Butterfield isn't going but there isn't carayol ledesma cause injured so it will be abut better whn he comes back but Hines man is the worst player ever and he's playibg

Sidgybean99


Williams is injured, butterfield flatters to deceive and hines has had a stormer so far. Hope you get disapointed more because you don't seem to know anything

marshall


I heard that the deal for Danny Graham was too expensive seeing as he earns 40k a week a Blunderland.

Still think there is an outside chance of the Vossen deal happening.

Smogmonster


I am a season ticket holder and went to the game today and tbh yeah when I saw the team before the game I thought why Hines? But when he played my god he was on the money! Solid at the back, might be slow but can't fault the lad, did the boro proud today, also Rhys Williams is injured until January, same as carayol, and tbh from our performance today didn't think we needed Rhys, muzzy or ledesma involved, kike is unbelievable, so is the football we are starting to play, that free kick?! Even Birmingham were shocked! - also clayton deal off as he is off to Brighton - butterfield already signed for huddersfield (haha jokes on him bottom of the league on day one) - so we will looking to loan in nathen ake to play in the position butterfield has left (on the bench!) dean whitehead and leadbitter we're solid today! Also lee tomlin my hat goes off to the lad! Top quality with kike today! We're guna win the World Cup! C'mon lads!

If so we will have a top championship midfield let's get vaughn fit n go for play offs.

terrier85


07 Aug 2014 14:05:04
You're right he is not part of a swap deal he is still supposed to be signing for you but he doesn't want to! You might have to find another replacement for Clayton and Boro are set to sign Damia Abella on a 2 year deal within the next few days he is having a medical on Teesside today!

Good thank god butterfield has rejected the deal I have hight hopes for him this season so far I think this is the best team
Meijas
Omeruo R Williams Ayala (Gibson) Friend
Leadbitter Butterfield
Adomah Tomlin Ledesma ( Carayol when back)
Kike

Williams and ledesma injured - my starting 11 for Birmingham would be - mejias - husband Ayala Gibson friend - ledesma butterfield - nsue tomlin Adomah - kike

I would say
Mejias
Abella-omeruo-Gibson-friend
Leadbitter-clayton
Adomah-Tomlin-Reach/Carayol
Kike

JRM


I know lol I mean to put leadbitter haha nightmare, and husband is a left back, left wing back or right back - so from our options for tomorrow it's Atkinson, Andre Bennett or husband, or play 3 at the back?, tbh if not husband I'd play Andre Bennett, top quality

Think dealing with Huddersfield has been a little hard for Boro, get the feeling they want Huddersfield to just lay down, give Clayton away and keep away from Butterfield.
Clayton has not yet signed for Boro, Robin's has threaten to put him in the team tomorrow.
Rumours is now, Huddersfield have signed Butterfield and Clayton is still a Town player. He might sign over the weekend.
Could be a good week for Town, Coady, Butterfield and a potential £1.5m for a player in the last year of his contract bought for£350k

Fu


Your still having to pay 1mill for butterfield so your only really getting 0. 5 for clayton.

BadManSi


See FU has returned home to planet Zog. Butterfield will be going nowhere until we have a replacement, just like you stipulate for Clayton. Most Boro fans are perplexed by this one and would wish to keep Butterfield and forget Clayton. If You think a good week is having your best player wanting to join the Boro and your first choice replacement not wanting to leave the Boro for Town then I would not want to be a fan in a bad week. At this moment all you have done is line up Clayton to negotiate in January for a free in May!

Lastmanstanding


08 Aug 2014 22:53:24
Greetings from Zog.

Heard we are paying £700k for Butterfield and you are paying somewhere between £1.5m to £2M for Clayton.
Clayton was always going to leave. Every Huddersfield fan knew that, we didn't know where though. Huddersfield's job was to get as much as possible for him and not let the player or agent dictate.
End of the day it looks like we going to end up with Butterfield, Coady and £450k to £950k in the bank. I actually think we've have done very well. It seems you'll find Boro seem more miffed to be losing Butterfield than we are Clayton.
Clayton was the player of the year for Town but only because the rest of the team were so rubbish after christmas. I think you might be shocked to find out how average he can be.
Well good look with the season and it's been fun communicating. Can't wait for September the 13th, think that's when we'll see who's got the better deal.

08 Aug 2014 23:01:58

New twist, Clayton doesn't want to go to Boro, now prefers Brighton. Not feeling loved apparently, doesn't want to start at a club where the fans don't want him. Too many leaks from Boro on this mess. You can only blame the local Boro rag and twitter.
Not sure what it means to Butterfield, rumour mill on Zog says he signed last night!

Fu what's the score? Lol

Middlesbrough have agreed a deal with Hajduk Split right back Avdija Vršajević. Only formalities left to be completed, 99% done.

Adam Clayton deal will go through today.

Jacob Butterfield due at Huddersfield for talks on a deal, so looks like money and swap deal with Clayton

htafc1908


Also signed abella but won't be ready in time to play on Saturday because of international clearance

Boromad86


We can't get rid of Butterfield rather just stay away from Clayton and keep Butterfield he's one of our best

I personally think Clayton will have more of an impact Butterfield never really did anything and I disagree that he was one of our best tbh he never really did anything!

If we signed Damià Abella before Friday night there is every chance he will be able to play or take part. Just the pre-game jitters talking.
Clayton deal hopefully done if Butterfield agrees to move, but it's a separate deal!

Hopeful of Patrick Bamford deal also going through in time to take part on Saturday.

JRM

{Ed003's Note - have to sign by noon friday then there is international clearance to have.}

I can't believe we are willing to let butterfield go! Could be one of the best midfielders in this league if he plays every week and his injuries are in the past, iv trusted karanka up to now but this is just weird. Would we not be better just keeping butterfield instead of getting Clayton and put the 2 mill towards a striker i.e. Vossen???

Damia would not be eligible for the game at the weekends

Heard of a reliable source that, Adam Clayton will join Middlesbrough Wednesday or Thursday. The reason for the delay is Jacob Butterfield is coming the other way. Fee believe to be around the 1.7 million mark, with add ons and fee taking it to 2 million.

InsiderHTAFC


Is clayton better than butterfeild?

redrocket_123


Butterfield will not be leaving Middlesbrough, Karanka has said he remains in his plans and is too talented to let leave for nothing.

I think Huddersfield fans will have to deal with the fact they have lost arguably their best midfielder to another championship team so Clayton can fulfill his ambitions. Funny how a htafc fan said Clayton wouldn't join Boro as it was a backwards step, foot in mouth moment I think.

BoroLad93


Rather have Butterfield can't believe what we're playing at letting him go and main on a free just keep them for gods sake at least Butterfield he was wuality

Sidgybean99


Couldnt agree more borolad93 this season is our season in aitor we trust utb!

MfcForever


Clayton has been brought in to challenge Whitehead and play along side Leadbitter. Butterfield has been a star performer in pre season and his role as an attacking midfielder is shared with Tomlin. He will not be going anywhere.

Butter field isn't going anywhere

Sidgybean99- We let Main go because he hasn't proved he can have an impact at Championship level never mind compete for promotion he isn't good enough! Butterfield isn't leaving karanka will have plenty of choices in midfield which is a good thing he wants at least 2 players for each position! We need to finalise the RB
deal and get a striker before the Birmingham game now!
Omeruo has officially signed on a season long loan today I know we already knew but it wasn't finalised until this morning!

Jacob Butterfield isn't part if the deal, he is very much staying at Middlesbrough. He could leave before September but we will be wanting a fee.

JRM


Butterfield going end of bad business by the club

Huddersfield have signed Coner Coady today, if we get Butterfield and £1.5 for Clayton. We have a better balanced midfield. Thank you very much my Smoggie friends.

It was only last week you where banging on about how Huddersfield wouldn't budge from there 3 million valuation!! Now he's on the move to the Boro terriers fans seem to think he's turned from a world beater into an average player. If Butterfield is part of the deal I'm not bothered in the least to lose him, he's had a good pre-season against less then great opposition and in my mind not the same player he was when showing so much promise at Barnsley, he's had a couple of bad injuries possibly taking there toll a ewe bit.

Callaby32


Your welcome, thank you for your best midfielder.

BoroLad93


No way we can let butterfield go he is class. I thought this was going to be his season. hope he stays. I would rather see whitehead go

boro


Don't know why we're spending loads of money on every position but striker I know we've bought kike but we've got rid of 3 strikers and brought just 1 in we need atleast another decent striker to work with kike, and if not Vossen then so what look somewhere else and invest the money we were willing to in Vossen to someone else won't be happy with graham or some young loaneess we should play 2 strikers 2 wingers and 2 midfielders not 5 midfielders like always too defencove1 upfront doesn't work when carayol baxk it will be great and hopefully Rhys Williams is back to his old form I'm a fan of his and for let Butterfield go he works great with lead bitter but loads of completion now for CM's Butterfield is one of our best and should be kept hold of

Sidgybean99


Sidgybean99:I thought this is a rumours site and not opinions on who should play and in what formation. Get over who we are letting go trust and back our manager.

Adam Clayton will be joining Middlesborough after all. The deal was done today. Looks to be in the region of £1.5m although as usual with Huddersfield the fee will be undisclosed. Leaves a gap in the Town midfield to be filled quickly as Majewski's loan into the club from Forest is not thought to have been made with Clayton's departure in mind. Last minute replacement signing could be announced on Friday.

Not yet it isn't, Brighton back in. Sounds like he's off but nowt official

Any huddersfield fans care to shed any light on if Adam Clayton is any good then? Is he better than butterfield, leadbitter, whitehead, ensue, adomah, carayol, ledesma??

daz_boro


Our best midfielder but not good enough to make a difference to anyone wanting to get to the premier league. Didn't feature in friendly tonight so definitely off

Huddsguy86


He's a quality young player with the ability and potential to perform at Premiership level. A good buy at a good price. I wish him all the best.

Rumours in Huddersfield it a far from done deal. At least one other club has matched the asking price, Brighton. Seems like Butterfield might swing the deal your way. If it does happen what a fantastic piece of business by Huddersfield.
Clayton was our best midfielder by miles last year, but when we played well as a team he went missing. Seemed to shine when we were not so good. Good player but after signing Coady today, getting £2m with one year left on his contract is great business.

Fu


Great business? Selling best midfielder on the cheap, in the hope of getting butter field as part of the deal? Then with no offence to him bringing in a young untried lad for 375k not the reported 500k, progress. what progress?

Townfan62


Funny, I thought he wouldn't be leaving for less than 3m? Ridiculous and unnecessary signing. Complete waste of money for an average player no better than what we already have.

marshall


06 Aug 2014 23:02:27
Townfan62, are you a Grimsby fan? Clayton was in the last year of his contract, he signed for £350k two years ago and we potentially sell him for £2m or £1.5m and Butterfield. When we were rubbish, the 2nd half of last season, Clayton was our best player by a country mile. When we were playing well though and Patterson punched him people were more bothered about Patterson not playing than Clayton, at that time all the dynamics of the midfield were wrong. We now have Norwood, Hogg, Coady, and the Polish bloke who's name I'm not even going to try and spell. Then the youth, both the the under 18's and under 21's walked their leagues last year. Last think we have is either £2m or £1.5m and Butterfield, now to me and anyone else not on the moon, that's is great business. I didn't mention progress but for one of the smallest clubs in the Championship, I would call that great progress.
Please don't cry though in two years when we sell Butterfield for £xm and bring in four others. It's the only way a club of Huddersfield's size can actually progress. Unfortunately we're not massive like the Boro.

If you think Boro has given 2 million plus Butterfield for Clayton you are from planet Zog. All your posts on Clayton have been desperate. The transfer is on hold simply until Town find a replacement which is fair enough. You asked for Butterfield and were told to do one. Understand you have bid for Coady.

Lastmanstanding


No sorry not a Grimsby fan, just a realist. mid boro told us to get stuffed with butter field hence the cheap arrival of Coady for next to nowt, million in bank! Yeah bring out all these supposed brilliant youngsters, Sinnott etc, we all saw him eh, ie subbed, crooks seen him, they must be good as they never play! Let's see how many play Saturday.

Townfan62

Good morning for the depressing planet Zog.
I actually said it was either £2m or £1.5m and Butterfield. I don't work for the club though, those are just the rumours up here on Zog.
Contrary to been told to do one on Butterfield, it is work in progress, doesn't sound like he is over keen on the move though but we'll find out soon. Seems like we fancy Butterfield and your manager is happy to let him go. Time will tell.
Clayton has not signed for you yet and Brighton have not given up hope. It will be an interesting couple of days.

Coner Coady signed yesterday on a three year deal with the option of another year.

Fu


07 Aug 2014 08:30:25
Do town even need clayton or butterfield anymore? Coady is top class n will be a top top player n so is majewski if we can get him full time then if can get norwood playing well all the time plus hogg. Then there's billing and holmes who are already championship level kids without playin hardly any games. that's 6 cm without counting crooks whose been used at cb but not quite ready, pelts can play dm and gobern who could turn out to be a scott arfield. I think when st ledger comes in we will be done unless we could bring in a premier young forward on loan. Over one million profit n the teams looking together roll on saturday

FU
Timing is everything.
You were told in no uncertain terms that Butterfield would not be part of the Clayton deal. Town then held the Clayton deal up to bring in a replacement whilst at the same time you made a straight approach for Butterfield. Understand the club is not that keen to lose him as he has had a great pre season. Believe we have allowed Butterfield free reign to stay or go and he is not that keen to switch, but that last bit is just word on the street. Personally I believe it would be a mistake to let him go. Two footed and intelligent midfielders are not that thick on the ground in the championship and this could be his season? Good luck to you if you get him.
