Daniel Ayala: Could be on his way to Middlesbrough

The Spaniard spent last season on loan at Nottingham Forest, and Hughton admits it is best for the 22-year-old to play first-team football more regularly at this stage in his career.

Ayala has been linked with a loan switch to Middlesbrough, with a view to a permanent move, but Hughton has refused to comment on the reports.

Speaking to The Pink'un, Hughton said: "We are making assessments of the whole squad.

"We have brought in eight players now but we have had more go the other way so we have to get the balances right.

"Dani is someone who went out on loan last season but came back and I have to say looked very good in pre-season training and he has been involved from day one this summer.

"That is one we are assessing, but it is important for him to get games at his age."

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
