Tony Mowbray: Hopes to strengthen his squad

Tony Mowbray: Hopes to strengthen his squad

Boro have been linked with Norwich duo Dani Ayala and Luciano Becchio, as well as Leeds striker Ross McCormack, in recent days, and Mowbray is keeping his fingers crossed as he awaits a breakthrough.

He told the Evening Gazette: "We are working on things on a daily basis. How close are we to doing something? I would like to think pretty close.

"Let's wait and see what happens, but we are working very hard to strengthen the squad.

"The point I have been trying to make is we have a good team. I just feel the squad needs to be strengthened so that if we suffer an injury, we have cover in place."

Meanwhile, Nottingham Forest are understood to have made a fresh bid for Boro midfielder Grant Leadbitter, who Mowbray wants to keep on Teesside.

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
