Middlesbrough transfer latest: Boro linked with £2m ex-Brentford star as Blackburn could miss out on target

Former target of Middlesbrough is set to become available once more in summer transfer window

Middlesbrough will look ahead to the summer transfer season as a time of regrouping and hope. Their 2021/22 Championship season ended with a seventh place finish - just missing out on play offs for promotion.

However, it’s been a season of positives for the Northern side, making it to the FA Cup quarter finals and accumilating 20 wins and 10 draws in league.

Boro star Marcus Tavernier has also had a season to remember as he was able to quell doubters fears regarding his future.

For seasons, Tavernier has divided opinion on his usefullness with many recognising his talent but struggling to see him using it to the best of his ability.

However, since Chris Wilder’s arrival, Tavernier switched positions and has been a key part of Boro’s success this year.

With the summer transfer season coming up, Wilder will hope to solidify his team’s 2021/22 success and strengthen his squad ahead of next year.

Take a look at the latest news from the Championship, including Middlesbrough, and their second-tier rivals.
