The news is Boro want Gibson, but only on loan, Norwich also interested, we want Worrell from Forest, Sheff Utd also interested.
So no actual news then, just what everyone already knows.

Boro want Gibson but cant afford him, we want rid, and if we do get rid we will be replacing him.

So we were reported as being priced out of a move for Robertson on 25th June by a couple of journalists, and then landed Taylor on 6th of July.

Suppose we could call a couple of weeks a different time, and Taylor the obvious number 1 target just like Lansbury once was.
