Middlesbrough could make a move for Norwich City Head of Recruitment
Middlesbrough's aim for next season is to ensure they can compete for Premier League promotion, and they are doing everything they can to prepare ahead of the challenge.
Boro have been linked with making a move for the Head of Recruitment at Norwich City, Kieran Scott, hoping to appoint him as their new Sporting Director.
This is an off-field shake-up as they also look to modernise the hierarchy at the Riverside Stadium.
Scott has so far been influential for Norwich, helping the club secure players like Teemu Pukki and Emi Buendia.
He has previously sent a hint that he is interested in becoming a Sporting Director in the future, and it seems it may become a possibility with Middlesbrough.

The potential appointment of Kieran Scott will be a blessing to Middlesbrough because it will help free up some of the responsibilities on Neil Warnock, allowing him to focus on other matters.
