Middlesbrough fans react on Twitter to Everton loanee Mohamed Besic's display against Birmingham City

Middlesbrough fans want Everton loanee Mo Besic brought in on a permanent transfer.

Middlesbrough fans are absolutely raving about Everton loanee Mohamed Besic, after his performance last night.

Besic helped Boro pick up a 1-0 victory against Birmingham City last night, with his performance in central midfield highly impressive.

Besic helped screen Boro’s defence, as they picked up a clean sheet at St. Andrews.

Besic is becoming a highly important player for Tony Pulis’ side, and there is a widespread hope that Boro will be able to sign him from Everton on a permanent deal in the summer.

Besic has started in Boro’s last five matches, and helped them avoid defeat in their last four.

Pulis’ side are making a last ditch run for the play offs, as they aim for promotion.

Boro are currently occupying the last spot in the top six, and Besic looks likely to have a key role to play over the remainder of the season.

Whether Middlesbrough would have a chance of buying Besic off Everton remains to be seen, as if a new manager comes in at Goodison Park, he may want to assess whether the Bosnian could still have a part to play.
