Tony Mowbray: In no rush to bring in loan additions

Tony Mowbray: In no rush to bring in loan additions

Boro are not against bolstering their ranks with short-term deals, but have no intention of bringing reinforcements in for the sake of it.

Mowbray is pleased with the squad he has been able to assemble and will only make a move if a target he feels will considerably improve his side becomes available.

Asked if he is contemplating returning to the negotiating table, he told the Evening Gazette: "Only for the right players and they are not jumping out at me at the moment.

"We'll wait and see, see how the team does, see how the results go.

"We could be talking differently in a few weeks' time, sitting here comfortably relaxed with the squad.

"Numbers-wise it's about right, so let's wait and see what injuries we get, let's wait and see how the team goes."

Mowbray is believed to have enquired as to the availability of Norwich City pair Luciano Becchio and Daniel Ayala, but is giving little away when it comes to possible deals.

He added: "I've had conversations with Norwich about various players and obviously we've signed one player from Norwich (Jacob Butterfield) and taken one that was at Norwich (Kai Kamara) and I spoke to Chris Hughton about his temperament and his abilities and how he did for them.

"At the moment I'm concentrating on the players I've already got."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
