His move to reassure fans comes amid reports Championship rivals Nottingham Forest have made a fresh bid to sign Grant Leadbitter from the Riverside outfit.

But Mowbray says the club are trying to put a team together to compete in the division.

The Middlesbrough boss told the Evening Gazette: "I don't think our supporters should be concerned about any of our best players leaving.

Supportive chairman

"The chairman is very supportive about the fact that we are trying to build a team to get out of this league.

"Why would you sell your best players to your potential rivals? I don't think that's something we should be concerning ourselves about.

"We're trying to build a team not dismantle one or chase money.

"We're trying to put together a team that can be competitive at the top end of the table."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
