Middlesbrough have today been linked with a move for Cardiff City and Canada winger Junior Hoilett.
Hoilett, 30, was signed by Neil Warnock at Cardiff back in 2016. He’s featured 161 times for the Welsh club in the last four seasons – winning promotion in 2018 – and has scored 23 goals.
Warnock has also worked with Hoilett whilst at QPR and now after securing the signing of ex-QPR captain Grant Hall on a free, Warnock is looking to raid another former club of his.
Can you name these 40 EFL mascots? Have a go now!
The Canadian international managed seven Championship goals in 43 appearances last season, featuring in both the club’s play-off ties against Fulham.
Boro fans have reacted positively to the news – Hoilett is a proven Championship player and someone Warnock knows well, but the potential fee is not yet know with Hoilett still having a year left on his Cardiff deal.
