Exclusive: Crossley thinks Burke and Middlesbrough could’ve been a good match -Championship

Speaking exclusively to The Transfer Tavern, former Middlesbrough goalkeeper Mark Crossley believes Oliver Burke and his old side could have been a good match.

According to The Northern Echo, Middlesbrough were keen on doing a deal with Sheffield United for Burke, with manager Neil Warnock coming out to state that he likes the player.

Boro’s interest failed to materialise into anything, though, with Burke remaining a part of Slavisa Jokanovic’s squad.

Would you have taken Burke?

For Crossley, had they got a deal over the line, it could have been a good move for both parties. On his former club’s interest in the United attacker, he told TT:

“He’s still a young lad and he needs to be playing football. Maybe a loan spell at Middlesbrough could’ve been the answer, which would’ve been good for Middlesbrough.

“He’s a good player, got loads of pace, loads of power. He’s definitely a talented player. He’s got pace to burn.” 

Burke was not an automatic starter for United last season and has already been left out of his side’s starting XI a few times this term.

If the 24-year-old Scotland international does not manage to nail down a spot in the team before January, then perhaps a move to another Championship outfit like Middlesbrough is something he considers in the next transfer window.
