Woodgate reveals Boro are looking at two more signings

Middlesbrough manager, Jonathan Woodgate, has expressed his intent to bring new faces to the club before the end of the transfer window.

Woodgate saw his team lose 1-0 on Friday to Fulham ending their six matches unbeaten run in the league.

Fulham ran the defence ragged, and this was not surprising given that Boro have endured an injury crisis at the back.

Speaking after the game, Woodgate claimed that a lack of defensive options had contributed to the defeat.

"I would love to have played a four at the back because you've got two full-backs looking after their winger and two v one at centre-half, but I've only got one fit centre-half."

When quizzed on whether the club could make further moves in the transfer window, Woodgate admitted that he had a target of one or two signings.

"How many more signings would we like to make? I've no idea. Maybe one or two, let's see."

Woodgate has already brought in new faces to the club with Lukas Nmecha and Patrick Roberts joining from Manchester City.

Dejan Stojanovic became the latest signing after joining from St Gallen on Thursday, but the club have yet to bring in a centre-back.

One player that has been linked with the club is defender Reece Oxford.

It is understood that Boro are in advanced talks with the player as they seek to loan him for the rest of the season.
