Been told we want 10 for Randolph... dont see us offering terms for Ayala Howson Gestede... just because I dont think we can afford them. Clayton free to go as well I believe

Aw that is a shame. Out the 7 out of contract i want Howson Ayala and Friend to stay. Shotton, Clayton, Marv and Rudy can go.

My hope is maybe offering ayala n howson reduced terms but maybe over a longer contract. I am aware its not easy as just that but hope we can keep hold of them two.

Personally think not offering Ayala and Howson new deals would be a massive mistake. Ayala has been a rock in a poor defence and how many games has Howson performed below a 7/10, I can’t remember too many. I’ve heard both really enjoy being at the club so that could be a boost.

Just some info I woke up to this morning... Maddison 85% happening.. just dependant on payment structure

That makes no sense.. Why would we pay 2.6 for a lad that's free in 6 months but then holding off on contract talks until March so we know the budget?

Because there would be more competition for him on a free transfer, whereas at £2.6 mil only a few will be able to afford him.

To be fair I doubt he would cost that much now due to the fact his contract is up in the summer, I'd imagine it could be just under £2m now

"Middlesbrough targeting Rangers goalkeeper Wes Foderingham as West Ham line up Darren Randolph to provide competition for returning number one Lukasz Fabianski"
 

"Middlesbrough are weighing up a move for Rangers goalkeeper Wes Foderingham.

The 28-year-old is being considered as Boro brace themselves for an offer from West Ham for current number one Darren Randolph.

Foderingham is out of contract in the summer and is free to talk to English clubs from January."

Maddison 85% happening.. just dependant on payment structure... after Clarke but he doesn't want to play for us due to Leeds connection and probably end up at Fulham. Got nothing on Gibbo but just cant see that happening... told Randolph is going to the highest bidder.. contract talks not taking place until March dependant on league position and then knowing playing budget for 20/21 season. Just what I have been told.

Dunno why that would be an issue for him, Leeds couldn't care less out about us.  Plus if he's that bothered about Leeds, he'd be better off coming to us rather than going and helping one of their promotion rivals.

It's Boro, so why wouldn't we?  Sense and us don't go hand in hand sometimes.  Besides, we're clearly desperate.

Few weeks ago i suggested Jordan Rhodes as a Jan loan signing if we failed to get our main striker targets in as he was failing to even make Sheff Weds match day squad.

He has just scored a first half hat trick for them so think he back in favour for now.

Not sure what everyone else thinks but this sounds like total BS to me and contradicts everything that has been spouted before.

And to add. Whilst reading all this drivel I was cringing and a little bit sick in the mouth at all the ass kissing that was going on!!

I think you have to let the players contract run out to offer them a lower wage and we can’t match there current contract now because we don’t know what league we will be in.

Boro considering a loan move for Ben Gibson in Jan according to the Sunday Mirror

Fair few outgoings in that case if we're going to afford his wages.

Probably means Ayala's on his way out. Gibson will love Fry and his nephew, two local lads at CB though.

Apparently it’s there and we don’t need to sell to buy.... Gibson must have got 3 numbers on last nights lottery.

    • I disagree. Replacing Britt is not the hard part imo. Getting a good fee for him under the current circumstances with 1yr left on his deal is the hard part. Ultimately we need to find a striker who gets between 12-15 goals a season as that is what we would lose with Britt.    One of the ITK members on here said we are looking at Lyle Taylor who out of contract at end of season. He has 11 goals to his name and has missed a decent chunk of season. Other players include Nakhi Wells who cost Bristol £5m (same fee as we are maybe looking at for Britt) and has 15 goals. Hugill on loan at QPR has 11 goals Woodrow at Barnsely has 14 goals Out of contract Fletcher at Sheff Wed has 13 goals. I am not suggesting we should look at any of them but they have all offered better value for money than britt so getting more bang for your buck than we have from Britt is not hard. Might be for us due to our past incompetent scouting department but some other clubs managed it. Maybe we can this summer...
    • Played as a striker he was a immense. A proper poacher and could shoot from distance too.

    • and replace him with who? Ivan Toney at a higher price who is unproven in the championship? We can all see that Brit is not perfect but replacing him is much harder, especially when good strikers are the most saught after commodity for teams in any division
