11 players who have been linked with Middlesbrough and their situations - including Sheffield Wednesday, Sunderland and Crystal Palace men
The summer transfer window isn’t set to reopen until June – yet players are already starting to be linked with Middlesbrough, while there has already been some transfer activity.
Earlier this week Boro agreed a deal to sign goalkeeper Joe Lumley when his contract at QPR expires in June, a shrewd signing given Neil Warnock needed to strengthen his options between the sticks.
Boro are also looking to sign three new strikers this summer and were interested in frontman James Collins, whose contract at Luton was set to end.
Yet the 30-year-old has instead agreed to join Championship rivals Cardiff City, meaning Boro have been forced to assess other targets.
Warnock said at the end of last season he wants to sign around eight or nine new players ahead of the 2021/22 campaign.
Here are some of the names who have been linked with Boro over the last few weeks and their situations as it stands.
