Goals have been something of a problem for Tony Pulis’ side this season with only four teams in the Championship hitting the back of the net on fewer occasions, despite the fact that Boro are still fifth in the table.
As a result, Middlesbrough had planned to bring Grosicki to the Riverside with the Poland international in fine form for Hull City. He has scored four goals and set up six more in the Championship this season.
But it seems that Hull’s demands made a deal rather difficult. The Northern Echo reports that discussions were held about a move for Grosicki but The Tigers were playing hard-ball, demanding a hefty £8 million fee or players in exchange.
According to The Mirror, Hull were keen on Ashley Fletcher so it would be no surprise if he was part of the talks.
Instead, Boro will have to make do with what they have got while Hull are still hovering on the verge of the playoff places.
