Someone is, Us or Leeds as both have bids of £13m accepted. Or so I am told. We will be wiser by 17.00

Don't believe we have had a bid accepted. Local rag (Evening Gazette) has very good links with Boro and are usually very accurate and up to date. There is zero news up here from any bid having been made. Only news is Boro are hoping to keep hold of Dael Fry and Marcus Tavernier and how Woodgate wants to bring one more in.

If there were any credible talk of Assombalonga I'm certain it would at least be rumour mill up here...and it isn't.

Fair enough, wonder where my boro mate heard it then? Would prefer we did not sign him but if no one else can be got he would have to do.

And in fairness it is deadline day and I think we have sniffed around him in the past. So we can now guarantee that since I have said this isnt on the radar it will now happen lol

Fingers crossed it wont, we will get a better CF in, but we did have more than a passing interest when he left Peterborough for Forest; where DF was manager..

Think we got linked to him in January too but that was when Pulis was in charge at Boro who likes a more targetman, hold the ball up type of player than Britt is. Woodgate has vowed to change to a more entertaining style of play and Britt fits that profile more so I would say it is less likely now than it was in January.

Still on the Palace radar, I imagine as a back up option if a more exciting striker like Chalof doesn’t cross the line?

Is that a credible site though? We all have seen sites like that and HTLC which chuck out all sorts just to get hits.

Are you an oldie?

I used to work for Alf Duffield who owned Middlesbrough at one time but it may have been before your time

Really not enthused about this potential signing at all.

We should be setting our sights, for a new Centre Forward, at a far higher standard than Britt Assombalonga. Indeed I’m sure we are and this may just be a back up but even so, we should be looking at much ‘better’ players full stop!

I would rather 0 more transfers than this guy. I have a grave feeling DF will get this guy though.
