The resident Middlesbrough fans propping up the bar in the Transfer Tavern have been thanking the high heavens for both the presence of Victor Valdes and their strong defence following the 0-0 stalemate with Watford on Saturday.
As happy as our Teeside locals are about the way Aitor Karanka has manned their first season back in the Premier League, they believe their side needs a touch more creativity to really enjoy the closing stages of the campaign.
With that in mind, reports from the Daily Mail have come as welcome ones for those who frequent the Riverside on a regular basis. Aitor Karanka reportedly wants someone to come in over the next few weeks to operate between the midfield and attack as he bids to introduce more goals to his team.
According to them, the North East side will step up attempts to bring Stoke City ace Bojan to the club and reportedly hope to strike a £9m deal over the Spaniard. Meanwhile, Everton winger Gerard Deulofeu is also said to be of interest as he continues to struggle for game time at Goodison Park.
The Boro fans are delighted about the idea of signing such a degree of talent, so soon after being promoted.
Who should Boro sign to light up the Riverside? Let us know below…
