Jacques Maghoma: Set to leave Burton

The 25-year-old is out-of-contract at the Pirelli Stadium this summer, but the Brewers are desperate to hold on to him and have offered him fresh terms.

However, after they failed to win promotion in the League Two play-offs - Sky Sports understands that he looks set to leave with a host of clubs keen on him - one of which is Middlesbrough.

Boro boss Tony Mowbray made a personal check on Maghoma in the semi-final first leg against Bradford City - and is believed to have been impressed.

Boro's scouts have been tracking the skilful former Tottenham trainee for much of the season - where he has excelled with 17 goals from midfield.

A number of Championship clubs are believed to be keen on Maghoma, but Boro could be set to offer him the chance of a move to The Riverside.

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
