Middlesbrough are preparing for a big summer.

After almost certainly missing out on the play-offs this season attention will now turn to next season and ensuring that the club are in and around the top six next time around.

Neil Warnock is determined to get the club promoted and with that he’s already putting plans in place to strengthen the squad.

New signings are a must at the Riverside Stadium, but there must also be a continued production line of academy players breaking into the first team fold.

Middlesbrough have some excellent young talent in their ranks, but who could make the breakthrough next term?

Here are two Middlesbrough wonderkids who we could see emerge.

When were Middlesbrough founded?

Nathan Wood

The central defender looks set for an incredibly bright future with the club.

Wood is only 18 years old but has already featured 10 times for Middlesbrough, with five of those appearances coming in the Championship. He’s also spent the second half of the season on loan with Crewe Alexandra in League One.

Next term will be a big season for the defender and many supporters are hoping that it’s a campaign where Wood can establish himself as a first team regular at the Riverside Stadium.

Calum Kavanagh

A slightly more raw talent, but one who looks incredibly exciting for Middlesbrough supporters.

The son of former midfielder Graham Kavanagh, Calum has enjoyed a wonderful season with the under-18s in which he’s scored 16 goals and represented the Republic Of Ireland at under-17 level.

Kavanagh ignored interest from Celtic and Chelsea to pen a three-year permanent deal with the Teessiders in September and the hope now is that he may well be a man to break into the first team fold before too long.
