Middlesbrough are reportedly plotting a move for Rotherham United midfielder Dan Barlaser, according to Football Insider. The former Newcastle United man has been a key player for the Millers over the past few seasons.

Head of Football Kieran Scott has revealed the club are planning for the next couple of transfer windows as they look to bolster the squad. He has said, as per a report by the Northern Echo:

“We have certainly plotted and planned January, which then naturally leads to the summer, but you never quite know what is going to happen within that. There might be a boy you have your eye on for the summer, you do all your work then someone decides to buy him in January. So there’s a bit of pushing and twisting.

“We definitely have our eyes on quite a few players for the summer already and conversations have already started with agents to make that happen. At the minute we’re looking at two windows.”
