Can we have a separate thread called ‘Boro’s Summer transfer thread- Danish edition’ for when Borodane inevitably try’s to push half of Denmark/Scandinavia on us 😉

To be frank I wouldn't advocate any Danish talent to join Boro at the moment. And those with talent in the danish league will likely have better offers than a relegation threatened championship club. I have repeatedly said we should sign Mustapha Bundu though, but Boro just won't listen.

Linked to Wesley Said from Toulouse.  They paid 8m Euros for him a year ago, so seems unlikely

He hasn't exactly set the world on fire there, so could be a loan.

Ah yes, more defensive midfielders, just what we need!

Ha. My exact though aswell. But we are losing Clayton and I'd happily let McNair go if we can get close to our money back. Same with Saville (which is highly unlikely).

And the last time we signed someone from Toulouse, it went so well.................

I'm not sure we have any proper "defensive" midfielders at all. Mcnair has always performed better as a box to box type and even Clayton had to modify his playing style to suit the role.

I think clubs have delayed voting on transfer window dates so i think it is a bit unknown at the moment..

It’s been extended to October across Europe I think.

I imagine the English leagues will fall in line with this. This is the latest news from the Premier League...

I'd rather keep Saville than mcnair to be honest, I just think Saville gives us a bit more.

    • To be fair, all of the players who we have been linked with so far make sense. I don’t think we’ll see many mercenaries come to Boro for a pay day, which I’m pleased about.    Touch wood; all the signs seem positive so far in terms of who we’ve been linked with 
    • Ashley Fletcher. The fact he’s overcome so much pressure and “down moments” with us, yet he has still come out stronger on the other side is really admirable. I think that’s a very under rated quality for a footballer to have. I bloody love it seeing him play with confidence and his hard work paying off. Go on LAD!
    • Fletcher.  I honestly think he is our best striker now.  He had a difficult start here, with fans on his back because of his price tag, but has persevered and developed despite all the inadequacies in our coaching set up.  I really like how he and Tav link up.  I am looking forward to seeing how he develops under a manager who knows how to coach players and inspire confidence in them.  
    • To be honest I find it difficult to pick a favourite out as we are at a stage where we have no consistently outstanding players though many are very capable in flashes...I like Johnson going forwards but he terrifies me near our penalty area...Fletch is improving all the time and with a partner that would pass to him, he could improve a lot more...Tav is beginning to show his potential ...but agree with Blanco, Saville very underrated and reminds me a lot of Mustoe...so probably one of those three depending on the game...."deep rums".?..I'll have one of those 
    • Friend also for sentimental reasons. I have a soft spot for Dijksteel  for reasons unbeknown to even myself and want him to do well. I really liked Ayala as I felt much more confident in our defence when he was a part of it but the way he departed left a bad taste. My favourite player growing up, despite my username, was actually Gianluca Festa. I like players who play in a way which shows that they care about this club as much as we fans do. Festa did that. There been more since him, George being one of them. His legs have gone but I know he gives a sh*t about this club just as much as the rest of us do.
