Boro were hoping to have added a fresh face to their ranks prior to Saturday's 2-0 defeat at Queens Park Rangers.

They thought a deal had been wrapped up, only to see an untimely training ground injury leave them empty-handed.

It has been a case of back to the drawing board for Mowbray and his transfer plans, but he is confident business will be done during the loan window.

He told the Middlesbrough Gazette on his recent recruitment frustration: "We had a hotel room booked for a player coming in on Friday night.

"We'd agreed it with the manager, the deal was done and I received a call 15 minutes later to say they'd picked up an injury in training and the player wouldn't be coming, it would be too much of a risk to let him go.

"We had a shirt with us with the name on the back and the number registered with the FA. We might go back to them when the injury clears up.

"It's something we're trying to address. By the time the international break ends, we may have one or two new faces in."

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.

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!
