Here are all of today’s Championship transfer rumours.
Middlesbrough endured a disappointing end to their Championship campaign as they narrowly missed out on a play-off spot.
Chris Wilder’s side were relying on Luton Town and Sheffield United dropping points as well as a win for themselves - and nothing went in their favour at all.
With their rivals both claiming wins, Boro were also beaten 4-1 by Preston North End, with Paddy McNair also picking up a red card.
Defeat meant that they finished the season in seventh place - five points below the play-offs.
Middlesbrough will now prepare for their sixth successive campaign in the second tier.
