Transfer Round Up: Boro Eye £1m+ Rated Defender, Club Could Pip Leeds For League Two Star And Leicester Enter Battle For Baggies Ace

Liam Lindsay

Middlesbrough are one of five teams interested in Barnsley defender Liam Lindsay, according to reports in the English media.

The Tykes have already rejected a £1m offer from Brescia, but Boro, Derby, West Brom, Brentford and Stoke are all said to be pursuing the 23-year-old.

Huddersfield are reportedly in advanced talks to secure Forest Green’s promising young winger Reece Brown.

Leeds United were believed to be the frontrunners to sign the 23-year-old but the Terriers are now favourites to secure the player on a free transfer.

Brown scored 11 goals and provided 15 assists as Forest Green reached the League Two playoffs last season.

Leicester City have joined Sheffield United and Norwich City in considering an offer for West Brom’s Jay Rodriguez, according to reports.

The Baggies striker scored 22 goals last season, but the club’s failure to gain promotion to the Premier League means he can leave for just £5m due to a release clause.
