Our Middlesbrough fans here in the Transfer Tavern are looking for new signings to come in this window but, as quoted by The Daily Star, Aitor Karanka has suggested outgoings could happen too.
The Riverside Stadium outfit have been going well enough so far this season with them holding a good chance of staying in the Premier League past this season.
They’ve adapted well and bought better which is why our local Boro fans are excited about these coming weeks.
However, players leaving are also a possibility with Stewart Downing one such name being floated about.
The former Liverpool and Aston Villa winger could be on his way to Crystal Palace this month and the Spaniard’s comments on the situation certainly suggest he isn’t too bothered by such a prospect.
Karanka said of Downing, and indeed any other player that might want to move:
“I have always said that a player who is not happy here can leave.”
The Eagles, themselves, are looking to avoid relegation and our Boro fans are hoping this potential deal doesn’t jeopardise their own hopes in helping Palace’s.
Thoughts, Boro fans? Let us know below!
