‘Panic buy’ – Many Middlesbrough fans react to links with Sheffield United player

Published

on

Middlesbrough could be set to bring in another attacking player before the transfer window closes, with Oliver Burke said to be on their radar.

Burke has endured a difficult time at Sheffield United since joining the Blades in a swap deal involving Callum Robinson last summer.

The 24-year-old made 25 appearances in the Premier League last term, starting on only 14 occasions and finding the net only once.

Having featured in three of United’s four opening games in the Championship this season, reports from The Sun have claimed that Slavisa Jokanovic is looking to offload the attacker before the window closes.

According to Football Insider, a move to the Riverside could be in the offing, with Boro opening talks to bring the Scotland international to Teesside.

Burke is among a number of attackers on United’s books, so getting him off the wage bill before the end of the transfer window will free up funds for Jokanovic going forward.

Middlesbrough, meanwhile, have recently seen Chuba Akpom return to Greek side PAOK, and they also let Britt Assombalonga and Ashley Fletcher depart at the end of last season.

Here, we take a look at Boro fans’ reactions to Burke’s arrival…
