Middlesbrough manager Chris Wilderfor four players to exit the Riverside Stadium this month – with two already in talks with other clubs.
With the need to balance the books thanks to the signings of Aaron Connolly, Folarin Balogun and the imminent arrival of Riley McGree, a number of players look set to depart the Teessiders this month.
One of those is Marcus Browne, who is in talks with other teams regarding a permanent exit with Sheffield United linked to his signature, per.

Middlesbrough set to take action in move that’ll affect Nottingham Forest and Sheffield Wednesday
Chris Wilder has been left furious by the handling of Middlesbrough’s Covid-19 outbreak by the EFL.

Two current Boro loans could also be terminated as Wilder looks to get rid of both James Lea Siliki and Onel Hernandez, with the latter having offers from other teams to take him from Boro’s hands after they signed him on loan from Norwich City in the summer.
These are moves that make complete sense for Boro – especially in areas of the pitch where they are top heavy.
It does look like that Wilder is getting it all his own way when it comes to transfers both in and out of the Riverside – perhaps where Neil Warnock may not have been so fortunate.
They will no doubt save quite a bit on wages if they can find new clubs for Hernandez and Lea Siliki, whilst Browne hasn’t lived up to expectations since signing in 2019 from West Ham but a catastrophic knee injury hasn’t helped that.
There should be no shortage of suitors for Ikpeazu either and it’s unfortunate that he’s now effectively sixth in the pecking order at Boro – there’s every chance that a Championship club could come in for him however.
