BBC Journalist Steve Crossman had tweeted to suggest that Middlesbrough had completed the signing of Mo Besic – although news is now beginning to surface that the midfielder has failed to agree personal terms with the club.
Boro have completed the deal for Mo Besic, at this stage I could not tell you if it’s a loan or a permanent deal as both plates were spinning. But at the very least he is a Boro player and will be until the end of the season. Also told there could be one more addition!!!

If that isn’t good enough news though for the Middlesbrough faithful, the good news keeps coming – as the club have also supposedly brought in “one more addition” – but to who the player is, remains a mystery.
Middlesbrough had been linked with a number of players such as Everton’s Yannick Bolasie, Millwall’s Jed Wallace and George Saville and several other names – but one player who could be likely to be this ‘surprise player’ may well be QPR’s Luke Freeman, who the club submitted an improved offer for in the dying stages of the transfer window.
Middlesbrough’s late offers for George Saville and Jed Wallace could well be due to the fact that Besic failed to agree personal terms with Boro, but those may have been bids the club had lined up for a while.
More on everything, as we have it.
