An update from FMTTM;
Like I keep saying Middlesbrough and Swansea have agreed a fee which does include add-ons but nothing else has happened at the moment because Middlesbrough are still trying to sign Ayala on a permanent before letting Rhys Williams leave the club. And as for people thinking that we have enough centre backs at the club, well that ain’t true. We have the following;
Jonathan Woodgate - Can’t play 90 minutes
Seb Hines - Karanka wants to get rid of and still talk that Birmingham are interested.
Omerou - Can play CB but isn’t up to the fitness levels needed hence why he hasn’t featured yet.
Ben Gibson - Young but yeah hes fine and can do a decent job.
Rhys Williams - Departing in the near future.
Ayala has returned back to his parent club now, so really that doesn’t leave us with too many CB’s. So if you think about it we really don’t have that much cover, that’s why Karanka is so keen to replace Williams as such. One thing we do have too many of is in the goalkeeper position with five in total.
