Two Middlesbrough transfer deals look to have fallen through as Tony Pulis continues to wheel and deal in the market.

Pulis has managed to secure the signings of Aden Flint and Paddy McNair as he attempts to mount a Premier League promotion push.

But one player that looks unlikely to be joining Middlesbrough this summer is former midfielder James Morrison.

TRANSFERS: Middlesbrough man wanted by Wolves
Morrison, whose contract at West Brom expired at the end of last season, had been heavily linked with a move to the Riverside Stadium - where he plied his trade until 2007.

However, reports in the North East suggest that Pulis is not interested in the 32-year-old and is focusing on other targets.

The midfielder is currently training with the Baggies as he looks to prove his fitness in a late attempt to secure a new deal.

Meanwhile, Southampton have reportedly lost interest in Middlesbrough defender Ben Gibson.

RUMOURS: Middlesbrough want £16m for striker
The Saints, as well as a host of other clubs in the top flight, were keen on Gibson earlier this window after his string of impressive displays last season.

But the Daily Echo suggest that boss Mark Hughes is not prioritising a move for the centre back at this time - although a deal could be revitalised later in the summer.
