Wouldn't make sense to Middlesbrough who will be wanting to balance the books again because of FFP. A straight swap would give them nothing.
Fry to be bought & loan them Gibson with a view to a sale of a CB (or two) in summer? That'd give them some income now & us for the summer window.

He'd get to play some football and then we can reassess things in the summer. Would be a big risk to sell him and finish the season with just 3 centre backs at the club.
Unless they do a P/X for one of those CB's we were linked with in summer, names have gone, sorry!
