Martin Skrtel linked with Boro move

Reports claim Boro are ready to bring Martin Skrtel to The Riverside.

The Sun claim Boro are ready to offer Martin Skrtel the chance to stay in the Premier League after falling out-of-favour with Liverpool.

The centre-back has been at the Anfield club for 8 years and is rumoured to be attracting the eyes of both Premier League and foreign clubs.

With an asking price of £6 million, the 31-year-old could be brought in to strengthen the Boro squad after gaining promotion.

Red Flush online casino is offering the ability to play over 700 online casino games and attractive bonuses for new players, something which may be appealing for gamers over the summer domestic break.

Skrtel, who has two years left on his contract, will be an expensive addition to the Boro squad, however it could be one that brings some much needed Premier League experience to the defence.

In other reports today, Boro are said to be interested in Sporting Gijon central defender Bernardo Espinosa. Bernardo is claimed to have had an agreement in principle to join Bournemouth.

Spanish newspaper Marca said the club have an 'offer on the table' from Middlesbrough FC, and Bournemouth's offer is resurrected too. The defender has featured 92 times for Sporting Gijon, scoring 6 times.

Meanwhile, Boro are still waiting to finalise the deal for Ajax winger Viktor Fischer. The Denmark international has agreed personal terms to join Boro, with a fee of £4m agreed. The 21-year-old has also completed a medical with Boro and the final paper work is due to be completed when the transfer window opens.

Fischer came to prominence in the youth ranks at Ajax after signing as an 18-year-old in 2012. He has made almost 100 appearances for the side who finished second in the Eredivisie last season.

Fischer has scored 24 league goals for Ajax, and has eight caps and one goal for Denmark - a great bet from Red Flush online casino.

In other news, Damia Abella has left Middlesbrough FC after Boro opted against extending the Spaniard's two-year contract at the club.

Most of the defender’s time at Boro has been spent on the treatment table, after he suffered a serious knee injury in September 2014.

He told the official Boro website "My first thoughts were that it was a big club in terms of the facilities and everything that surrounds the place.”

“I was convinced to join because it was a great project to be involved in and in the end we achieved it. It was a dream for everybody winning promotion.”

“I knew it was a big and lovely club. I really felt like I had landed on my feet joining Boro. I got into the team and it was a shame that I wasn’t able to keep going - but it was just how things worked out.”

“The atmosphere was perfect in the dressing room in terms of the ambition, belief and trust within each other.”

“We all believed in reaching the goal of promotion, as well as the fact that everyone was so friendly.”

“I just want to say how grateful I am for how everyone has treated me during my time at Middlesbrough. Thank you to everyone.”
