The 21-year-old Scot was brought to The Riverside by former Boro boss Gordon Strachan in May 2010.

Although he played a number of games during his first season south of the border, he made just one appearance in 2011/12, when he also spent time on loan at Walsall.

However, the left-back is getting more opportunities this season and admits it has been a long haul for him in North Yorkshire.

The former Livingston player told The Northern Gazette: "It's been a long time in coming. I have been wanting to play football and I have started to get some games.

"I am really enjoying my football right now. These things, contract situations, take a lot of time, I don't think I have anything to worry about.

"There's no rush and it's the happiest I have been since I joined and it's the most I have enjoyed my football since I started here.

"I'm enjoying Teesside. I have settled in now down here and I'm not thinking about going anywhere."

S

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

F365's Transfer Guide - Part One

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
