Middlesbrough strengthened this summer and were arguably one of the best prepared of the promoted sides, much to the delight of the Riverside faithful propping up the bar in the Transfer Tavern.
In 2014-15, ‘Boro fell at the final hurdle, losing to Norwich City in the play-off final.
Last season, however, they finally regained their place in the Premier League courtesy of a last-day draw at home to Brighton.
Spanish manager Aitor Karanka strengthened the Teessiders by signing experienced pros such as Victor Valdes and Alvaro Negredo as well as young players Adama Traore and Calum Chambers.
In fact, most of the summer arrivals were relative coups for a newly-promoted outfit.
All together, Boro actually signed eleven players, enough to fill a whole squad but that has meant that there have been a lot of fringe players left over in the squad.
Whilst Karanka has every reason to be happy with Boro’s start to the season, especially the impressive draws away at Arsenal and Manchester City, there is every chance that some members of the squad will feel like they need to move on to get regular football.
The guys at the Tavern think these TWO Boro players could be offloaded.
