Middlesbrough fans are split over Van La Parra reports

According to The Sun, Middlesbrough want to sign Huddersfield Town attacker Rajiv van La Parra on loan before the end of the month.

Boro were believed to be on the verge of sealing a deal for Yannick Bolasie earlier this week, with the Everton attacker due to arrive at the Riverside Stadium on loan.

However, Aston Villa have since swooped in to land Bolasie, which has led to Boro needing to have a rethink ahead of the closing of the loan window at the end of August.

According to The Sun, Huddersfield’s Van La Parra has emerged as a target for Boro, with the 27-year-old surplus to requirements at the John Smith’s Stadium this season.

Van La Parra appeared in all but five of Huddersfield’s 38 Premier League matches last season, and also has plenty of experience of the Championship having represented both Wolverhampton Wanderers and Brighton & Hove Albion in the second tier.

The Boro fans have been offering their views on the potential deal, and it would be fair to say that the majority are split.
