Adomah has signed a three-year deal at the Riverside and Boro are expected to announce his arrival on Wednesday, the day after their embarrassing League Cup exit to Accrington Stanley.

Mowbray has lodged a bid for Leeds United's Ross McCormack and admits his side are short of goals.

"Albert is not going to head balls in the box, or head balls away from the net," said the Middlesbrough boss.

"He is a creative wide player who can get up and down the right wing, he will cause problems to teams with his speed and trickery.

"He can create chances but ultimately we need to have somebody who can stick the ball in the net. We are looking hard to try to adjust that situation."

Leeds boss Brian McDermott has revealed that he has already turned down bids in recent days for some of his players.

"We've had a couple of bids for players which we've rejected," McDermott said.

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
