Braithwaite rumours are a cause for concern for Middlesbrough fans

Braithwaite rumours are a cause for concern for Middlesbrough fans

Many Middlesbrough fans are growing more concerned over the future of forward Martin Braithwaite, after The Northern Echo revealed the rumour that he is interested in returning to France. 

The Dane has already bagged three goals in four games for The Boro and looks in red-hot form as Middlesbrough sit in second in the table.

Now that Middlesbrough look like they are going to miss out on target Yannick Bolasie from Everton, keeping hold of Braithwaite (valued at £7.2m on Transfermarkt.co.uk) becomes even more important to them.

The 27-year-old featured for Denmark in the World Cup this year, as they crashed out on penalties to finalists Croatia in the last 16. However, it looks as though he has taken his good form into the new season.

The Boro host fourth place West Brom at the Riverside on Friday, hoping to secure their place at the head of the table.

With less than 10 days for EFL clubs to secure loan signings, Middlesbrough will be hoping that manager Tony Pulis will be able to persuade his star striker to stay.

Here’s what the fans have to say:
