Middlesbrough have made an enquiry to sign Bristol City striker Famara Diedhiou, who is out of contract at Ashton Gate in the summer.
As reported elsewhere today, Middlesbrough are interested in signing Famara Diedhiou. Understand that they have made an enquiry but no offers for the striker so far. Could be some decisions to be made at Ashton Gate soon. More on @Bristollive soon. #BristolCity #Boro

It had been suggested back in November that the target man was poised to sign a new deal at Ashton Gate, however that hasn’t happened, which has left the Robins vulnerable this month, as they know Diedhiou could leave on a free in the summer.
With his contract situation, Bristol City know this is the last chance to get a fee for the Senegal international if fresh terms can’t be agreed.
Quiz: Have any of these 22 players ever been in Bristol City’s academy?
But, it’s fair to say that the prospect of losing the striker to a team also competing for promotion has not gone down well with the fans.
Here we look at some of the reaction from Twitter…
Why would he want to go there? If he does there is a serious problem behind the scenes at AG.

As likeable as Fam is, I can't help but feel we could/should do better than him. Personally wouldn't be too against this.

If this actually happens and moves to another championship club then there will be a riot

Agent and player have played us and we've let them. All we've heard is "he wants to stay"
