So it is no surprise that many Middlesbrough fans are happy with the transfer links. They took to Twitter to have their say.

However, there are some Boro fans who are more reserved.

This will definitely be one to keep an eye when the transfer window opens next month. A proven goalscorer at this level, Middlesbrough, or any club for that matter, will be lucky to have someone of his calibre and with his experience for the remainder of the season.
