Middlesbrough have been in contact with free agent, Robbie Brady, as Neil Warnock looks to bolster his options on the left, Football League World understands.
It’s been a tricky start to the Championship season for Boro. At this early stage, the Teessiders sit 16th and have won only two of their opening eight fixtures. On Saturday, they were beaten at the Riverside Stadium by Blackpool.
Warnock was allowed to reshape his squad over the entire course of the summer transfer window, yet it appears that he wants more.
Football League World understands that Boro want to add another left-sided option to their squad and Brady fits the bill.
Contact has already been made with the 29-year-old, although Middlesbrough will face competition to sign the Irishman from Celtic, who are also interested.
Brady is a free agent having left Burnley earlier in 2021. He made 87 appearances during a four-and-a-half year stint at Turf Moor, having made a £13m switch from Norwich City.
The winger’s career started with Manchester United, before loans and an eventual permanent move to Hull City.
Having featured for the Tigers regularly between 2011 and 2015, Brady eventually moved on to Norwich, having established himself as a consistent performer in the Premier League.
Despite arriving at Burnley in 2017 with Premier League pedigree, Brady failed to make over 20 appearances for the Clarets in a single league campaign during his time at the club as injuries meant game time was very stop-start.
