Chris Wilder’s appointment at the Riverside ushered in huge improvements in results with Boro currently sitting in seventh place following their 2-1 midweek victory over West Brom.

Unsurprisingly, this resurgence in results means that some Premier League sides are starting to sniff around their key players and the Northern Echo report that both Isaiah Jones and Djed Spence could be on the move this summer.Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool have all been linked with a move for Spence with Boro reportedly commanding a fee of £15million for the defender.

Jones, on the other hand, is reportedly being eyed by West Ham with RB Leipzig, Lyon and Ajax having also shown interest in the 22-year-old who grabbed a vital assist in Wednesday’s win over the Baggies.
