Middlesbrough winning race for Everton star

Middlesbrough are set to conclude a deal to bring Brendan Galloway to the club on a loan deal for 2016-17, according to The Mirror.

The left-back has impressed since being given a chance to play at Goodison Park and is being tipped to have a bright future in the sport.

However, with Leighton Baines and Bryan Oviedo both at Ronald Koeman’s disposal also, it remains to be seen how much football Galloway will receive in 2016-17.

Aitor Karanka has been busy in the transfer market this summer and will look to add more new faces to his squad before the window closes at the end of August.

Championship side Newcastle United are also being linked with a move for Galloway, but the Teeside outfit are expected to win the race for his loan capture.

Middlesbrough started their return to the Premier League with a 1-1 draw with Stoke City yesterday, in a result they will be pleased with.
