Middlesbrough’s summer transfer window is showing signs of heating up.
It’s been a slow start to the summer for Neil Warnock’s side who have been limited to just one new signing since the end of last season, but after a disappointing end to last term, it’s clear that the club are looking to kick on.
Warnock is determined to push Middlesbrough into play-off contention after finishing 10th in the last campaign but if they’re to do that then they’ll need to kick their recruitment efforts up a notch.
With that in mind here’s the latest news from around the Riverside Stadium…

A move for the Bordeaux man could be tricky to complete due to his asking price, according to the Northern Echo.
The 22-year-old spent last season on loan at Fulham in the Premier League, and while the Whites had an option to sign the player, he has since moved back to France to link up with his parent club.
Neil Warnock is determined to sign at least two strikers this summer, but with a permanent move unlikely, it means that Middlesbrough may have to make a loan move if they’re to get a deal done.
