Middlesbrough fans desperate to keep Braithwaite

According to Spanish publication Mundo Deportivo, both Leganes and Girona are interested in signing Middlesbrough attacker Martin Braithwaite.

Braithwaite, 27, scored five Championship goals for Boro in the first half of last season before being loaned to Bordeaux for the remainder of the 2017-18 campaign.

The Denmark international is now back with Boro, however, and has started the new season in impressive fashion – scoring three times in five Championship appearances.

There is no question that Boro will be expecting to challenge for promotion to the Premier League this season, and Braithwaite could have a huge say in that.

That said, it is being reported that the attacker could now move to Spain before the end of the month.

The Boro fans have been offering their views on the transfer speculation, and it would be fair to say that they are desperate for their club to keep hold of Braithwaite.
