According to the Northern Echo, Middlesbrough could be set to offload Ashley Fletcher, Rudy Gestede and Grant Leadbitter this month.

Boro boss Tony Pulis is said to be open to selling a number of first-team players, as he looks to re-shape his squad at the Riverside Stadium.

Pulis has come under pressure from Middlesbrough fans, with his style of play once again drawing some criticism.


Middlesbrough are in fifth place in the Championship table, but a recent run of poor results has led to Pulis wanting to make some alterations.

Even top scorer Britt Assombalonga could be up for grabs, but Boro do not expect to receive the sort of fee the expect for the rapid forward.

Assombalonga is regarded as a £15 million player for Middlesbrough, and few Championship sides can afford that sort of fee.

Gestede’s, Fletcher’s and Leadbitter’s departures from the Riverside Stadium are far more likely though.

And it seems that Boro are more than willing to listen to offers for the experienced trio, as they look to raise some funds.
