Report claims Middlesbrough are frustrated with Tottenham over Spence deal as Nottingham Forest given renewed hope of transfer

Middlesbrough are becoming frustrated with Tottenham Hotspur over the Djed Spence transfer saga, Football League World claim.

And hence, it’s been claimed that a return to Nottingham Forest is ‘not out of the question’ for Spence.

The 21-year-old spent last season on loan with Nottingham Forest. He flourished in his 42 league appearances for the club, becoming the target of a number of top flight sides in England and across Europe.

But it’s Spurs who’ve been the most closely linked side. They’ve been in dialogue with Middlesbrough over the potential transfer but Football League World now claim that Boro are becoming frustrated with the ongoing situation.

This however contradicts some recent claims made by Middlesbrough boss Chris Wilder, who said that Boro are ‘expecting’ the Spence to Spurs deal to happen this summer.

It’s been reported that any money Middlesbrough make from the Spence sale this summer will be given to Wilder to use in the transfer market, so to say that Boro are frustrated with Spurs and that Nottingham Forest remain in the transfer chase is an easy claim to make.

But Middlesbrough have been hard at work in the transfer market anyway, with David McGoldrick set to become Wilder’s latest summer addition.

What next for Wilder?

Wilder won’t be dwelling on the Spence saga. He has plenty of work to do this summer and whilst a sale of Spence would give him and his side some much-needed funding, it’s not paramount to their fortunes next season.

And if Spence remains at the club going into next season, then Wilder will have a Premier League-quality player on their hands anyway.

Things are certainly looking up for Middlesbrough under Wilder, with fans hopeful of seeing some more fresh faces come through the door between now and the start of next season.
