Middlesbrough linked with Rangers keeper

The latest transfer rumours from Scotland reveal that Middlesbrough could be in line to sign Rangers stopper Wes Foderingham in January.

According to reports from the Daily Mail several clubs including Boro have expressed interest in the 28-year-old who is widely expected to leave Ibrox in the January transfer window. Wes Foderingham has been playing second fiddle to veteran stopper Allan Mcgregor in the past few seasons but is understood to be eager for first-team action.

Birmingham are thought to be the front-runners for his signature with the Blues reportedly tracking the stopper as they look to make a move in January.

Middlesbrough have also expressed interest in the stopper as they look to strengthen the team ahead of the crucial second half of the season after a disappointing start to the campaign.

Manager Jonathan Woodgate has been identifying spots in which the team can improve, with the club linked to a number of players. Foderngham would be the second player from the Scottish League to be strongly linked to Middlesbrough with the club also interested in Aberdeen star Sam Cosgrove.

However recent reports about the club's finances could mean that a number of players could be sold to free up room for transfers with high earner Adam Clayton set to be close to the exit door.

Foderingham has good experience in goal having started 110 League games for the Scottish giants and would be a good addition to the Riverside outfit.

With less than a week to the start of the transfer window, it remains to be seen whether a move would materialise in the coming days.
