Neil Warnock is hopeful of adding a couple of new players to his Middlesbrough squad early this week.
The Teessiders started their Championship season with a 1-1 draw against Fulham on Sunday but will be hoping that they can bolster their squad before the transfer window closes at the end of August.
Middlesbrough have already signed Joe Lumley, Sammy Ameobi, Lee Peltier, Uche Ikpeazu, Matt Crooks and Martin Payero, however there could be more new faces on the horizon.
Reports from Football Insider have claimed that a deal has been agreed to sign Sol Bamba on a one-year deal, while Football Insider have also claimed that ex-Brentford goalkeeper Luke Daniels has also agreed a deal.
While Warnock has not mentioned names with regards to the potential new signings, he did express his hope that the club could complete two deals in the coming days while also hoping to add a couple more in the coming weeks.
Speaking to Teesside Live, Warnock said: “Well you know about the lads that have been training with us.
“I’m hoping that we can sign a couple early in the week and then we’re working on a couple more.”
22 things all Middlesbrough fans simply must know - But do you?
It’s hard to argue with Middlesbrough’s work in the transfer market.
Six new signings at this stage of the summer is pretty impressive given the amount of work that needed to be done at the Riverside Stadium.
However with the squad looking thin it makes sense to add some more faces to the ranks.
If these reported deals come off, Sol Bamba and Luke Daniels will be great additions and will certainly serve the club well for the forthcoming season.
