Middlesbrough fans react to Moukoudi reports

According to The Sun, Middlesbrough boss Tony Pulis is desperate to tie up a deal for Le Havre centre-back Harold Moukoudi ahead of the January transfer window.

West Ham United were strongly linked with the Frenchman in the latter stages of the summer window, but he ultimately remained at Le Havre.

A number of Premier League clubs are said to be considering a move for the 6ft 3in defender, but according to The Sun, Moukoudi would be prepared to drop down into the Championship if Boro agreed a deal with Le Havre.

Indeed, the report claims that Boro boss Tony Pulis wants a replacement for Ben Gibson, who moved to Burnley in the summer transfer window.

Despite signing Aden Flint and Paddy McNair, Pulis is believed to want Moukoudi to lead his defence moving forward.

The Boro fans have been reacting to the transfer speculation on Twitter, and a selection of the responses, which are certainly mixed, can be seen below:
