Summer 2016 Transfer window

Summer Transfer Window 2016 Summary

Last Updated: 31/08/16 @ 23:31


Main Stories of the Moment


Articles of the moment:







Who saw this coming? Be honest. Purely on the calibre of player that Boro brought in, what an incredible window this has been for the club so far!


The late rumours that never came to fruition:


  • The club are rumoured to have tabled a £20m bid for an player; who the player is or if this is even true is anyone's guess.
  • The future of Jordan Rhodes is still very much up in the air. Boro are believed to be willing to let the player go permanently only if a club matches their valuation; Norwich are rumoured to be interested. There have also been a number of loan bids tabled but this doesn't interest Boro. If the player is to leave, who, if anyone, would Boro bring in as a replacement? Nobody knows.
  • Thomas Mejias is being lined up by Getafe as a potential replacement if their current #1, Guaita, completes a move to Sunderland. 

Other Stories of the window:



  • One transfer that has perhaps been overlooked is that of Juanjo Vila, a world leading expert on video and data analysis in sport. His analysis and input could and should prove invaluable to AK.
  • Contract extensions have very much been the flavour of the window as well with Ayala, Gibson, Friend, Foreshaw and Fry all being given new long term deals of varying length!

Well, having just seen our first proper transfer link I thought I'd start this up.


Middlesbrough are watching Gent-striker Laurent Depoitre. His contract runs out in 2017, but no offers as yet. #boro

Tut tut, Will. What have you done!? :D


Agree this is slightly premature though I think there's argument that this time there is only a List A and not a List B this time round for players for next season. Aitor may not be able to have a List B next year. List B may well consist of potential new managers.

Moral duty to delete this thread?


If I do there will be moans and groans


If I don't there will moans and groans.


But on purely a personal level this is far too early for this type of thread and tbh not even worth thinking about until we know where we will be until all is finalised.


I could simply lock it or hope that Will might just simply delete it himself.


I also realise that KM will be desperate to start this type of thread but guys really this early?


Any one with a good suggestion about this please say so or those in favour of locking this for at least a while please indicate

I don't think it's too early, the season ends next week and besides we're already being linked with players. Plus it'd be interesting to discuss who we might target depending on whether if we'll be playing Premier League football or not next season.
