Boro manager Tony Pulis has admitted he is hoping for a busy end to the loan transfer window which ends on Friday, saying he expects comings and goings to happen in the coming days.
The club have made a fantastic start to the season so far, sitting joint top of the Championship table slightly below Leeds on goal difference having managed 4 wins and a draw in their opening 5 games.
Pulis’ younger stars took to the field this week in order to see off Rochdale 2-1 in the Carabao Cup, booking their place in the third round of the competition.
And the manager was full of praise for his players, who he hopes will continue to work hard in order to push for a place in his team.
But with their top of the table clash with Leeds on the horizon, they must first get some last minute business out of the way.
It is reported that Boro are hoping to sign Millwall’s George Saville on loan, as well as another winger. They are also keen on allowing several fringe stars to leave the club – with Ashley Fletcher and Marvin Johnson said to be on their way out.
When asked about whether or not Boro still have business to be done with the window about to close, Pulis said: “Yes, so I won’t continue to talk.
“I’m hoping the next couple of days will be busy.”
He was then asked if that meant players will be coming both in and out, to which he replied: “Yeah, fingers crossed.”
