Crystal Palace have come in for Middlesbroughs Lee Tomlin

02 Feb 2015 14:45:06
Is it a loan or a permanent? What's the fee?

02 Feb 2015 15:54:04
Can't believe you've asked that it would take a very silly offer for us to sell anyone of our top players

02 Feb 2015 16:33:26
..............I've been watching ssn all day and their reporter at Palace hasn't been told so you'd better get on the M1 quick as you can and tell Alan Pardew, because even he doesn't know about this bid that he's made

{Ed003's Note - We don't ask for sources on here Jimmy if folk want to give it they will.}

I have heard this too 3m



28 Jan 2015 18:43:27
Albert Adomah to Crystal Palace for 3m plus add ons, this will page the way for Tom Ince to sign for boro on loan with a view to a permanent.

29 Jan 2015 00:36:36
Middlesbrough have signed midfielder Adam Forshaw from Wigan Athletic for an undisclosed fee

30 Jan 2015 13:31:04
Boro are leading the chase to sign highly-rated Northern Irish teenager Jordan Stewart, according to his club manager.

The 19-year-old has recently returned to parent club Glentoran after a trial on Teesside, and the winger is thought to have impressed Boro's coaches.

Stewart is considered one of the brightest young talents in Northern Ireland's Danske Bank Premiership, and has been linked with a number of Premier League clubs including Crystal Palace and Stoke City.

But Glentoran boss Eddie Patterson claims Boro are leading the chase to sign the sparkling gem at the end of the season.

"By all accounts Jordan has left a good impression on Middlesbrough but like any transfer the club has to weigh up several factors before making a decision, " Patterson told the Belfast Telegraph.

"I was talking to their Academy manager and it seems that they are quite pleased with the qualities Jordan is showing in games and in training.

"I will not stand in any youngster's way when there is a possibility of a move to full-time football and neither will Glentoran. There's no question Jordan is one our game's outstanding young players.

Scott Media BelfastJordan Stewart, right, celebrates after scoring for Glentoran
"The ideal scenario for me is Jordan staying with us and then getting a move across the water at the end of the season.

"It's great for him that he has this opportunity and hopefully a big club can recognise his potential. I know Stoke City and Crystal Palace also want Jordan over for a trial and it's fantastic news because he deserves a chance in the full-time game.

"My job is to look after the club's interests but also support our young players in whatever way I can to see them fulfil their potential.

"I know some managers are reluctant to let players go on trial and I can understand that point of view but I have told Jordan we will do all we can to help him along this road while recognising the importance of him being available to play for Glentoran.

"In our conversations with young players we want to show them we have an interest in the players' future and that's paramount for me. "

A deal has yet to be finalised to bring Stewart to the Riverside on a permanent basis, but Patterson's comments suggest that Boro chiefs are already evaluating possible transfer targets for next season.

Aitor Karanka yesterday confirmed that Boro's business is done this month, after Adam Forshaw's arrival from Wigan Athletic.

Seems like this lad was the teenage sensation I was on about.
Anyone got any more information on him?

Tom Ince I don't think so utter rubbish





28 Jan 2015 15:13:16
Tom Ince linked with a move to Middlesbrough and Derby,



28 Jan 2015 14:12:57
Middlesbrough are being linked with both Graham Dorrens of West Brom and Tom Ince at Hull.

To be honest I can't see how either would fit in as Boro don't need another Midfielder of Winger.

It could be just hype but Sky are reporting it.

Personally I can't see anymore business being done this January unless we let someone go first.

28 Jan 2015 16:30:43
There won't be any more major business this January, maybe one or two players in on loan later on, Ince and the likes but no more signings. We've signed well and there's every possibility we'll finish the season in the top two if we keep up our winning form of late. In Aitor we trust

01 Feb 2015 15:08:52
Albert staying none going





28 Jan 2015 06:23:26
Its is understood that West Bromwich Albion are prepared to pay £4m and Graham Dorrans for Middlesbrough left back George Friend, the player is not keen on the deal and Boro have held firm sp far.

It would have to be silly money for him to leave and Dorrans isn't that good

28 Jan 2015 12:28:39
I'd tell them to forget Dorrans and offer over six then I'd consider it maybe

28 Jan 2015 13:27:01
Adam Forshaw is a definite signing and will be around the £2million mark, and Dorrans is also a possibility considering that he is out of favour at West Brom, however, there are several clubs interested in signing him with a view to a permanent buy at the end of the loan deal. It is heard that Birmingham and Middlesbrough are the two clus at the head of the race. We are also keeping track of a teenage sensation, I heard he was coming in to take Woodgate's place as Woodgate is getting on a bit now. However, unfortunately, I haven't been given any other information about this teenage sensation, anyone have any ideas?

29 Jan 2015 09:41:31
I don't think a teenage sensation would be signing for Middlesbrough

29 Jan 2015 15:19:04
Maybe he thinks he wouldn't get game time at a prem team so he wants to come to the best team outside the prem



27 Jan 2015 14:00:07
Middlesbrough to sign Adam Forshaw from Wigan for 2.5 million pounds on a 3 and a half year deal. Move expected to be completed today

Wont be today, can see it being thursday

Well jimmy jimmy another one past your friend in the club without a word. What exactly does your mate do, sell the bovril? What a chairman. brilliant

27 Jan 2015 18:16:09
Good. That's the kind of signing we need in my opinion. Real footballers with experience of the English leagues

27 Jan 2015 18:28:12
Only me that found this deal out really suddenly? good transfer i'd say though

Sounds like another Clayton but a bit much for another player of the same

31 Jan 2015 10:04:26
Palace have signed Senegalese international full back pape souare so they won't be enquiring about friend any longer



27 Jan 2015 06:50:55
Middlesbrough have taken 19 year old Glentoran midfielder Jordan Stewart on trial

27 Jan 2015 14:16:53
An update on Middlesbrough's transfer news.
Adam forshaw is set to sign for around £2 to £2.5million.
He was Brentford's player of the year when they were in league one, has won the Pfa award when he played for them in league one and has been named in league ones team of the year. Wigan signed him from Brentford for £4million when they had Uwe Rosler but then he got sacked so this deal is almost certainly done.
He's also an academy product of Everton.



26 Jan 2015 15:28:57
This info came from a relative of Arsenal director who is over here in Greece on businesses who I was chatting to in general about football yesterday.
Arsenal have been scouting Middlesbrough's young cb Ben Gibson.
Gibson was excellent against Man City in Saturdays FA cup match and this has convinced Arsenal to prepare a bid for him before the transfer deadline rather than wait until the summer.
Not sure if deal will include a loan back back to Boro until end of season.

26 Jan 2015 19:35:08
They can get their grubby hands off he's one of our few real, homegrown players



21 Jan 2015 01:00:10
Charlie Adam is a name I've heard Middlesbrough are trying to sign.

Boro will not sign Charlie Adam. I think a few Boro fans need a reality check.

His wages would be too high for us and whoever we sign will only be a back-up to Clayton & Leadbetter.

More realistic targets would be someone who is showing promise and needs the experience of being involved in a first team squad.

Was at the Cardiff gamw last night we need someone to play for tomlins position and names been mentioned is Charlie Adam ans nick Powell so adam may sound like a long shot but were going places. and if atsu gose to derby y carnt Adam cum to the mighty boro who will be playing prem football soon ak we trust



18 Jan 2015 12:55:38
James Morrison set to return to middlesbrough

Its true the James Morris link good business

Nick Powell another name iam been told

19 Jan 2015 12:55:45
I also have heard Nick Powell.

19 Jan 2015 15:25:33
Would love either, be brilliant if we got both. Would Powell be a loan or a purchase?

19 Jan 2015 17:01:04
Old link we wanted Powell before he went to Leciester, we got Veljković instead. Stick my neck out a little - teams we've watched this season. Charlie Adam loan?! Long shot from the club.

19 Jan 2015 19:37:17
Karanka said it would be a loan from a prem team I'd be happy with any of those mentioned

19 Jan 2015 19:44:31
No, we have been linked with Powell again since his return to United. I wouldn't mind Charlie Adam, but I'm sick of loans, time we signed someone. I'd rather have someone like the lad Cairney from Blackburn. I've seen him linked with us on here before

"You are sick of loans" of course we didn't sign anyone in the last transfer window! and this one hasn't finished yet! Not really sure what you want?
Karanka has made excellent use of the loan system which also complies with FFP rules. Look at the bigger picture instead moaning.
As for Powell his loan was terminated by Leicester ( Nigel Pearson) due to his poor disciplinary record and attitude in training

20 Jan 2015 15:32:58
Calm down. Of course I'm sick of loans. Every Chelsea reserve going is on Teesside along with most of their mates from Spurs. No long term vision from Karanka, proof that he wants to move on sooner rather than later. If we lose tonight I'll bin my season card

What? For losing one game? This is one of our best seasons! and this isn't fifa mate karanka is going to bring in a player which is going to improve the squad, even if he is on loan, not break the FFP play rules by buying some overpriced player, person

20 Jan 2015 18:20:41
We should be able to beat Cardiff. Welsh team! One of our best seasons? You haven't been going to games for very long. Don't get me wrong, I don't want to break the new stupid finance rule or whatever it is called but we need long term signing.

Jimmy Jimmy is offit man calm down take a chill pill don't even k ow what your talking about!

his transfer news that comes from his friend is always miles off look at the Spurs lad he said he's extended the day before he left.
Clearly he isn't looking to the best interests in the club next he will say we should have a front two of ibrahimovic and benzema

I can't believe that anyone would moan about getting quality loans from Chelsea or any other premiership club.

Long term signings mean absolutely nothing these days. Karanka is doing a fantastic job.

We have a solid defence, the best central midfield partnership in the championship and strikers who can score at this level.

Its impossible for Boro to sogn these players permanently as their transfer fees are way to high for us.

This is an exciting season and its by far the best one we've had for over 6 years.

Some people don't have a clue on here ak using loan market because he's not daft and can buy class because he's taken ua up end of get your self to the games we played poor against Cardiff and won so stop moaning on and support your team tje club is in the best place its been in for ages utb

21 Jan 2015 21:17:54
So Jimmy jimmy we won, did you keep your season ticket? This is by far the best season we've had for at least 6 years and we are playing good football. Boro doesn't deserve fans who can't support us if we lose.

22 Jan 2015 15:23:43
Yes my season card is still intact. For another couple of weeks at least. Best season for six years isn't really saying much considering the tripe when Southgate, Strachan and Mowbray were managing Boro. As for not supporting the team I haven't missed a game home or away this season.

Stop been negative Jimmy

22 Jan 2015 18:44:37
never said you don't support the team just saying you are too negative and need to lighten up

23 Jan 2015 07:42:54
It's hard not to be negative when players like Patrick Bamford who are uncommitted and will not be here next season are making the team. Steve Gibson seems to be the only one with any long term vision

23 Jan 2015 08:29:42
Ohjimmyjimmy is the type of fan that holds the club back. I have two like him sat behind me every week that moan constantly. My son counted how many times one of them shouted 'rubbish' the other night(a word he shouts constantly btw)-after half an hour he'd shouted it 37 times, my son then stopped counting. They slag all the players off, but then celebrate their goals. Yes this is one of the best seasons we've had in a long time,and I've been going since 1984. Aitors use of the loan system is brilliant, his tactics and vision is superb. This management team will take us up. Utb

Jimmy to say that players are uncommitted just because they are on loan is Ludacris, Bamford puts his all in every game and his work rate is fantastic. Yes he may not be here next season but I am sure that every time he steps out on to the pitch either with Boro or elsewhere he is only thinking about doing his best for that team.

23 Jan 2015 12:26:53
I resent that comment as you don't even know me

23 Jan 2015 15:49:01
Bamford?!? Puts his all in?!? Does he sh. And btw Ludacris is a rapper.

23 Jan 2015 19:13:07
I resent your sarcastic comment regarding the other guys spelling. And yes, I do know you, well I know your type. Brought up in the glory days of Ravanelli, Emerson or maybe the cup final European times, you have no idea what the club is about. Bet your a pleasure to sit near at the game as all you'll do is moan. Have you celebrated any of the loanees goals/performances this season, I bet you have. The word hypocrite springs to mind

24 Jan 2015 09:03:49
I celebrate the goals of Middlesbrough Football Club not individual players. And no I was brought up long before the days of Ravanelli and Emerson. Although I do have to admit that not all the loanees are uncommitted, both the lads from Tottenham seemed fairly interested when they were here. As for moaning at the games, not unless we're losing. It'll be next season if we go up and all the loanees and substandard Spanish players are gone and we are being drubbed three or four nil every week then you'll be moaning and for when that happens, I accept your apology.

25 Jan 2015 09:12:31
If Boro go up this season then I bet my house that Bamford and Kalas are on loan with us again next season.

Its a deal that works well for us and for their development.

Jimmy chill out man and enjoy the ride.

26 Jan 2015 16:03:35
Great when do I move in?

26 Jan 2015 20:07:38
jimmy you are so negative! we will not get beat 3 or 4 nil every week and this weekend proved that. we will obviously get loanees next season why don't you lighten up and be upbeat about a great win like the rest of us. Lucky we won against city otherwise you'd have thrown your season ticket away!

26 Jan 2015 22:42:33
Is there any excuse for positivity in times like this? More loanees are not the answer, we already have fart oo many. Of course I'm upbeat about beating City but I'd throw it away for a more important league win against Brentford on Saturday. as for throwing away my season card, that seems like a waste of money but I'll think twice about renewing next season, and I haven't said that in the 40+ years I've been going to games.

{Ed003's Note - how many jimmy lol}

27 Jan 2015 07:54:41
I'd say probably about 42. I'm not that old I've just been going since I was about nine or ten.



13 Jan 2015 09:59:04
Looks like Aldershot Town striker Brett Williams is off north of the border with St Mirren and St Johnstone keen to take the hitman.

Troy Deeney of Watford on WBA radara.

Gosport Boro striker Matt Paterson being courted by Portsmouth, Oxford, Swindon and now Crawley.

Andy Johnson will snub Wycombe and sign for Luton.

And finally, Rotherham's Fabian Brandy will sign for Rochdale.


14 Jan 2015 13:30:38
quick re-brief of our targets:
Fernando Pacheco - becoming more likely, yet it is getting even quieter as there isn't much notice to this, and it is claimed to be on a loan until the end of the season.
Juan Muniz - all rounded midfielder who can easily give Tomlin a run for his place and is very competitive
Niguez - basically a full on, but younger, version of Whitehead (who is way past his peak in my opinion)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Jacob Ross

15 Jan 2015 16:19:09
Oikonomou and Dimi did not play together in the Greek youth teams because Dimi would have been ineligible to do so six years ago as he would have been 31. Furthermore, Cairney is not someone who the club have expressed an interest in but I personally would love to see him at the Riverside. Muniz and Niguez cannot be called targets yet as Boro have no interest in actually signing them, but Karanka does admire the players. As for the Emerson article in the gazette you have misunderstood. If Pacheco does come in it will be if/when Mejias departs so Pacheco can be second choice goalkeeper

15 Jan 2015 16:19:09

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

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



12 Jan 2015 18:37:13
Boro have extended the loan of Tottenham defender-midfielder Milos Veljkovic until the end of the season. They will also look to confirm a couple of low-profile signings in the next few days. Spanish striker Seve Angel is expected to join on a free transfer on a contract until the end of the season whilst Magnus Wolff Eikrem an ex Manchester United free agent who (I think) was briefly on Cardiff City's books is wanted as short term cover. If the Angel deal falls through Boro will join the race for ex City striker Rolando Bianchi with fellow Championship sides Leeds, Cardiff and Fulham. Karanka may be interested in another defender as cover, free agent Steven Mouyokolo is the name after previous target Juan Torres Ruiz joined Getafe. Still on the look out for a stopper, Pachecos name still being mentioned, but Karanka wants a keeper with first team experience in English football.

13 Jan 2015 12:55:28
The only area the club are looking to seriously improve in January is midfield, preferably someone creative. Juan Muñiz of Sporting Gijón and Aarón Ñíguez of Elche are two who have been watched this season.

The club would only bring a striker in if they sold one. Bamford signing his extension meant we ended our search for this window.

13 Jan 2015 15:40:01
Can't see us going for Niguez as his goals coring ability is questionable to say the least. Muniz looks a decent young footballer but no improvement on Tomlin.

13 Jan 2015 18:43:52
The idea would be to add to the options and variety of player in the midfield area. A goal-scoring midfielder is expensive to bring in. I'm sure Aitor will get the player or two that he needs to consolidate the team.

14 Jan 2015 07:27:34
I'll put these names to my friend who is the one who gives me my information. See if he's heard anything about it

So much for your accurate info regarding Milos extending his loan till the end of the season!

14 Jan 2015 14:50:45
I managed to get most names right in the summer.

Milos is gone freeing up vital room for a creative midfielder, either loan or perm. They have spent the last 3 months watching midfielders so it was pretty obvious.

JRM glad to see you posting again, your rumours in the summer were pretty close to the final outcome compared to all this friend of a friend nonsense. Personally I would like to see Butterfield back. far more consistent than Tomlin. Apart from persisting with Mejias too long, the only mistake Karanka has made IMO



12 Jan 2015 08:59:03
I've heard Shay Given could be heading back to Middlesbrough.

12 Jan 2015 12:29:16
You've heard wrong

How do you know your information hasn't exactly been spot on

13 Jan 2015 07:29:23
Karanka wants a long term solution. Why replace a 37 year old with a 38/39 year old



08 Jan 2015 16:30:06
Boro will confirm the Kalas deal before the Huddersfield game. Furthermore a goalkeeper is high up on AK's list of targets, with a potential deal for Real's Pacheco having fallen through and Jamal Blackman having been recalled from his loan by Chelsea after the departure of former Fulham keeper Mark Schwarzer to Leicester City. West Ham forward Ricky Vaz Te, who was influential in their promotion season, but has since fallen out the first team will join Boro, perhaps initially on loan as cover for the strikers and wingers. Interest in a loan deal for Chelsea midfielder Lewis Baker will come to an end with the arrival of Kalas as we will then have the maximum three players on loan from Chelsea but the search for a backup central midfielder still going on, albeit queitly and in the background with worries that Boro will not be able to extend the loan of Milos Veljkovic from Tottenham Hotspur. No names on the GK or midfield situation as yet but Vaz Te is the forward interesting Boro

Wrong about Vaz Te, he's joining Fulham

09 Jan 2015 08:09:51
I can only pass on what I've heard and what I've heard is that the deal for him to join Boro is still on

09 Jan 2015 16:23:07
Lewis Baker already joined Sheff Wed on loan.

10 Jan 2015 06:37:31
Karanka is still keen on getting Fernando Pacheco on loan, it is still going on quietly, as he wants to sort out the expired loanees, such as Veljkovic, etc, and is trying to extend them even further ahead.
Other targets that he has enquired about are:
Shay given (again)
Arbeloa (short term contract)
Steve Harper (recommendation by Steve Agnew)
and it is also mentioned that Karanka is looking for a Central Midfielder incase the loan contract of Veljkovic can not be extended. This target has been claimed to be Tom Cairney of Blackburn, as many people took into consideration that Steele left for Blackburn, would we get someone back off them?

Replies are very welcoming. Thanks for reading, Jacob Ross

Think we're okay fr keepers and Arbeloa! doubt he will come here from Real Madrid!

10 Jan 2015 10:54:46
Jacob is correct. My source now tells me that Pacheco is still coming but now only on a loan. Karanka knows what he plans to do about Veljkovic and he hasn't told. Given is fantastic but Karanka wants a long term GK. I especially can't see him going for Harper unless Agnew is a strong salesman. Arbeloa remains a short term loan target should Kalas fall through. Not heard anything about Cairney but like him as a player. Baker has joined Wednesday that's why I have said that interest will come to an end

10 Jan 2015 13:38:21
We're ok for keepers? Ok sidgybean. Did I ever tell you I played upfront for United.



01 Jan 2015 02:53:24
Bamford has extended his loan until seasons end whilst Jason Steele has made his loan move to Blackburn Rovers permanent. Boro will now look to confirm the Pacheco signing whilst Brentford have signing Rangers midfielder Lewis MacLeod, who supports Manchester United

Looks like it could be tomas kalas according to reports

02 Jan 2015 23:13:10
Yeah two arrivals from Chelsea due, Kalas and midfielder Lewis Baker. This will made possible by the return of Jamal Blackman to the Blues at the end of his loan this month



31 Dec 2014 16:37:57
Boro will look for a new right back on loan when Emilio Nsue leave for the ACON, as Damia and Ryan Fredericks are still out. Crystal Palaces Jack Hunt is one option, his loan at Nottingham Forest expires on New Years Day whilst I've also heard rumours linking Reals Arbeloa with a shock short term loan move to the Middlesbrough Teesside BBC Radio Tees Stadium

Arbeloa would be a great coup. I'd like to see us go for Bakary Sako of wolves or Jota and Andre Gray from Brentford

Would love to see Jota and Gray at the Riverside top quality players. To bring them both in we'd have to pay about two to three million but they'd be worth it. They'd be useful with Bamford going back to Chelsea at the end of the season and hopefully Vossen returning to Genk



31 Dec 2014 12:00:58
Boro will look to loan out or sell James Husband who has failed to break into the side since joining in the summer. Karanka does not want many new signings, but Boro are interested in Chesterfields Eoin Doyle for half a million pounds and with Blackman returning to Chelsea and Mejias set to depart, Real stopper Fernando Pacheco will sign on loan until the end of the season with a view to a permanent move

Husband your mad class player hoin nowhere kike is shocking should be vossen up top Bamford in behind and keep it that way vossen on a different level he will get 20 goals a season

04 Jan 2015 14:16:02
All the silly people saying Kike is bad must not have been involved in the game. He is crucial to our team with his hold up play, as for Vossen twenty goals a season? Really?ok then.



29 Dec 2014 16:01:58
Derby & Middlesborough are keeping tabs on Wycombe Midfielder Josh Scowan. The wanderers Midfielder is keen on stepping up to the championship should either club make an offer for him

Really hoping he's not on his way to Boro. Certainly not the kind of signing either side needs as they should both be looking for promotion



29 Dec 2014 10:24:49
Ipswich, Middlesborough and West Brom are considering a bid for Brentford's Moses Odubajo. Moses has impressed at right back this season but will be in danger of losing his place when Alan McCormack is back from injury so will be a perfect chance to tempt him away with a guarentee of first team football.

Hope this isn't true Boro have enough full backs and wingers as it is

12 Jan 2015 11:12:59
I doubt it is true. When McCormack was fit, moses was playing on the wing so I assume he will just move back there.

15 Jan 2015 16:20:45
Good. We don't need to start signing substandard players now. We're in a promotion race for goodness sakes.

13 Oct 2014 21:35:41
Huddersfield, Middlesbrough and Fulham all in the race to sign Peterborough fans favourite Ben Alnwick

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!

16 Nov 2014 09:51:16
Parker you are a droid if the player in question was to get an offer from htafc he would jump ship pronto as it would mean more money better quality football and better all round will now be thinking how do I know this? Well I've been at both clubs and Peterborough is for the love of god is shhh I isn't anywhere near as quality as htafc. Peterborough will languish in lg1 for another couple of years then slip away into non league football whilst htafc will grow and grow. So before you think about using your digits to spout garbage again get your facts right.!!!

But if this rumour is true why would he go to Huddersfield and not Middlesbrough or Fulham

You tell me I give my reply you answered with a question

21 Dec 2014 12:27:42
Boro don't want or need a substandard goalkeeper. He should go to Fulham he would get more of a look in there than at Huddersfield



03 Sep 2014 07:13:58
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.



01 Sep 2014 13:55:47
Middlesbrough have signed winger Yanic Wildschut from Dutch side Heerenveen for an undisclosed fee

Vossen and Wildscut in 2 more hopeful before close.

4 to leave including Seb Hines and two youngsters on loan

Any idea who the two are?

And seb hines is set to leave for birmingham

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

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

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

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

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.

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

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

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.

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.



29 Aug 2014 11:38:24
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.

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'!

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

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

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

Bamford signed, vossen unlikely, andy delort on his way

Id have Jon Walters and mickail smith here

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

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

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

Wigan in for delort

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

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.

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.

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

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

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.

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

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



28 Aug 2014 19:55:37
Jamie O'Hara to sign for Middlesbrough after being released on a free transfer from Wolves earlier today

Get In Ohara is class

Kai Kamara leaves Leaves Boro by mutual agreement

29 Aug 2014 10:40:04
No he's not n O'hara is no good he's a sick note

I Don't Get Why We Had To Let Him Go. He Was A Top Player And Scored 4 in His first 7champinship games £900,000 For One Season RIPOFF

29 Aug 2014 12:53:06
I don't think bamford is the answer we aren't going up now. UTB IN AK WE TRUST

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

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

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

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.

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

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

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!



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.

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

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

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!

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

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!

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

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.

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

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.

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



27 Aug 2014 16:20:20
Danny Graham was sat with woody last night watching boro v preston not my words. I was listening to commentary from maddo n brownlea. maddo said " he's been speaking to woody and danny Graham down stairs "
What do you think guys?.

Woodenhead was at MK Dons mate.

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.

28 Aug 2014 12:04:34
Nothing in it, was a social thing.

Signed Ryan Fredericks on loan



27 Aug 2014 14:50:51
Middlesbrough have won the race to sign french striker andy delort for a fee of 3.5m

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

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

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 ********

{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.

30 Aug 2014 18:09:34
He Was at the wigan game today



26 Aug 2014 19:38:17
James Morrison just pulled up at middlesbroughs riverside stadium

If he was here for talks he'd of pulled up at hurworth like everyone else

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!

27 Aug 2014 17:37:12
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.

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

24 Jan 2015 09:09:03
We've got the best defence in the league



26 Aug 2014 07:33:18
Middlesbrough are set to complete the signing of Bamford and Lewis Baker within the next 24 hours.
Bamford could make his debut tonight against Pre.

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

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

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

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

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.



25 Aug 2014 09:43:00
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.

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

Hope a decent keepers coming in.

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

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.

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

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

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

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
