Middlesbrough will be focused on cementing a play-off spot from here on in until the end of the season, with a number of teams breathing down their neck at this moment in time.
Boro extended their unbeaten streak in all competitions to seven games earlier on today as they got the better of West Bromwich Albion at the Hawthorns.
However, it appears as if Tony Pulis decided against signing another attacker last month, as according to the Northern Echo, Middlesbrough didn’t go back in for Yannick Bolasie, despite sources close to the attacker suggesting that he expressed a willingness to discuss a move.
Interestingly, it’s believed that sources close to Yannick Bolasie had suggested he had expressed a willingness to discuss a move to Boro after turning them down in August, but in the end Middlesbrough didn’t go back for him.
Indeed, the Congo international went on to seal a move to Belgian side Anderlecht instead.
Yannick Bolasie, who is valued at £13.5 million (by Transfermarkt), would have been a solid signing for the Championship club as he managed to display his qualities at Villa Park earlier on this season.
Indeed, it comes as some surprise that decided against a move for the attacker as they’re currently light on options, so it would have made sense for them.
