As Middlesbrough’s Riverside Stadium prepares to host two England friendlies this week, Boro boss Neil Warnock will continue to assess his options in the transfer market.
Indeed, England manager Gareth Southgate has spoken to the media ahead of the two games.
The Three Lions arrived on Teesside over the weekend to begin preparations for the matches against Austria and Romania.
“I have to say, the last few days have been excellent,” Southgate said.
“To come here, it’s been a really relaxed environment. We work hard but we want a relaxed atmosphere.
“Middlesbrough have been fantastic looking after us.
“Now we have the two friendlies to look forward to.”
