Middlesbrough, Middlesbrough man faces uncertain future after not being included in retained list

Middlesbrough man faces uncertain future after not being included in retained list

Middlesbrough submitted their official retained list to the EFL and there is one glaring omission.

Middlesbrough announced via their website that Sol Bamba, Lee Peltier, Neil Taylor would not be offered new contracts, whilst Jonny Howson would enter into talks ahead of a proposed new deal. They also revealed that all four loanees would return to their parent clubs.

Since then there has been no further announcements from the club as to whether any players in contract would be leaving this summer.

However, with the recent publishing of the retained lists of every side in the EFL, there seems to be no place for Sammy Ameobi in Middlesbrough’s squad for next season.

The report shows players registered to play as of 21st May 2022, but Ameobi’s name does not feature.

The forward only signed for Boro last summer, making the switch from Nottingham Forest on a free transfer. But having picked up an injury prior to pre-season he has not made a single appearance in a Middlesbrough shirt.

Now it seems he will be allowed to depart, with Chris Wilder’s side prepared to cut their losses and release the 30-year-old.

He is not the only one to have suffered a season ending injury, with right-back Darnell Fisher having suffered a similar fate, yet, he is included in the retained list.

With the Ameobi still out, even if he was to become a free agent, it is likely teams would be hesitant to take the gamble until he can prove his fitness.
