Boro players will know their fates concerning their futures this week
It is no longer news that Middlesbrough are ready for a major rebuild next season, as they hope to challenge for a Premier League promotion spot.
Neil Warnock has a clear vision of what he wants to do next season, and he understands that he needs to allow many players to leave and sign new ones.
Several players are on loan from different clubs, and they have no idea if the Championship side will still need their services. The contracts of some other players will end this summer, and they are also not sure where they stand in Warnock's plans. The same goes for young players who are looking for playing time with the first team next season.
Warnock has, however, stated that he will see each of the players this week, where he will decide which of them will stay or go in the transfer window.
"I'm going to see everybody, some Monday, and the odd one Tuesday," Warnock said.
"We'll probably make some sort of statement later on in the week."
"I'm going to be speaking to everybody over the next two or three days, youngsters included."
"We'll then let you know what I’ve been saying to them, but it's only fair that I speak to them first before we announce anything, whether they are staying or going."
