SportsTalk December 3 According to British media reports, Carrick’s Middlesbrough want to sign a central defender in the winter window.
It is reported that since Lenihan underwent ankle surgery, Carrick needs a top replacement, ideally a loan to help the team.
It is understood that Nottingham Forest’s Worrall and Leeds United’s Cresswell are their main targets. The former is 26 years old and does not have many opportunities in Nottingham Forest. A loan is beneficial to both parties. Cresswell, 21, is a fringe figure in the team, but Leeds may be reluctant to loan out to Middlesbrough because they don’t want to help their rivals.
Middlesbrough experienced a difficult start to the season. They only won their first win of the season on September 23. Although they are now ranked third in the Championship 12th place, but only 3 points away from the promotion play-off zone.
