Middlesbrough set to offer new deal to out of contract winger
Middlesbrough manager Neil Warnock indeed has a lot of decisions to make this summer, and the future of winger Nathaniel Mendez-Laing is one of them.
Reports from the Northern Echo suggest that Boro will try to offer Nathaniel Mendez-Laing a new deal at the club.
The 29-year-old had a deal with Boro until this summer, after joining them on a short-term deal in the January transfer window. He played nine times within the period, scoring once and providing one assist before suffering an injury.
Warnock has previously revealed that he will give him a chance to showcase himself in pre-season before deciding on his future, and it looks like the club may be set to offer him a new deal.

Warnock knows Mendez-Laing very well, and he has an excellent relationship with him having worked together at Cardiff City. This report seems authentic, and it wouldn't be a surprise if the player is offered a new deal.
