Middlesbrough will be looking to bring another player in before the end of the month as they go on in search of promotion to the Premier League.
Indeed, Boro have already displayed moments of brilliance so far this season as they seem to have found some consistency under Tony Pulis. Although, they did suffer a setback in their pursuit of a long-term target recently, as according to Hartlepool Mail, Leeds United and Swansea City are also interested in Everton’s Muhamed Besic.
After an impressive stint at the Riverside, there were hopes that the Bosnian would return for a longer stay.
But, after a permanent deal broke down earlier on in the summer, things have gotten worse for Boro as two other clubs have joined the race in the form of Leeds United and Swansea City.
Middlesbrough will be desperate to get a deal done as he was one of their star performers in the last campaign and could help them secure promotion this time round.
Tony Pulis will want to bring Muhamed Besic back to the club before the end of the month as they really benefited from his services last season.
The Bosnian has no future at Goodison Park and will inevitably depart before the loan deadline, but he could rock up at either Leeds United or Swansea City instead of the Riverside Stadium.
Grant Leadbitter is getting to the end of his career and depth in the middle of midfield isn’t currently a strong point for the Championship club, so securing Besic’s signature is vital.
