Reliable journalist Pete O’Rourke has also confirmed the news – with it appearing that Middlesbrough are going to try and take this transfer right down to the wire – and the club will be hoping they can bring Luke Freeman to the Riverside by the time the 5pm deadline hits – and all deals across the country will have been struck.
Freeman first began to make a name for himself at Stevenage, scoring 14 goals in 103 appearances from midfield, before Bristol City the decided to offer the midfielder a chance to step up with the club and move into the Championship, after helping the club to earn promotion from League One – the division in which he left Stevenage to move to the Robins.
Freeman scored a similar goal tally of 10 goals in 105 games during his time with the Robins and then moved to QPR in 2016 and has gone on to make 61 appearances for Rangers, scoring on seven occasions.
Middlesbrough have got money to spend and it’s quite likely they will have the capacity to convince the midfielder to move to Tony Pulis’ side; or at least the financial power to offer the money possible to make QPR consider selling one of their main assets.
