Boro set to pull off stunning loan raid for PSG striker Jese

Karanka is busy trying to bring fresh blood into his first-team squad at the Riverside stadium, as he plots a route towards keeping Boro in England's top division past the end of the season.

Middlesbrough head coach Aitor Karanka has confirmed the club have rejected an offer from Leicester for forward Gaston Ramirez.

Karanka said: "Yes, he's handed in a transfer request, but the offer that we received is not good enough". The last five months have been hard for him because he couldn't settle in as he wanted with the language.

Middlesbrough have agreed a deal with PSG to sign striker Jese Rodriguez on a six-month loan - with the move now left up to the player. "He knows this step between now and the end of the season is really important so he has to be sure". It is frustrating. He was calling us to play here last season.

Reynoldsburg woman charged after reportedly taping toddler son to wall
An 18-year-old mother was arrested after she bragged about taping her toddler to the wall in a shocking Facebook live video. According to CBS News , police were tipped off about the video on Wednesday and launched an investigation.

Yesterday the news broke that Middlesbrough had matched Burnley's £10 million bid for Robert Snodgrass, with the hope of luring the Scottish midfielder to the North East.

He said: "W e have a really good example with Albert". I don't know how long he will be out for or if it will be one, two, three or four weeks. 'It's obvious. But he's a player we like, we are trying to bring him here.

"No one player is more important than the team, but the offer has to be right for the club before a player will leave", he told reporters. I was with him when I was at Real Madrid, I know his potential, I know his character, so he could help us a lot. "We have another five days to see what will happen".

Now, at the age of 23, it is believed a deal will go through as long as they can convince the player it can be of long-term benefit to him.
