Boro ready to let Ben Gibson leave

Middlesbrough are gearing up to sell Ben Gibson, with a number of Premier League clubs ready to move for the homegrown ace.

Boro were reluctant to sell last summer following their relegation from the top-flight, but having failed to get back up at the first attempt – they now look unlikely to stand in the way of the 25-year-old – nephew of club chairman Steve.

Boro had been wanting £20million, but I understand that a £15million deal could be enough to land Gibson – who has been a part of the senior England squad.

Leicester were keen, but they have already snapped up Jonny Evans this summer – leaving Everton and Southampton as front-runners for his signature.

Fulham and neighbours Newcastle are also monitoring the situation of the left-sided centre-half.

Bookmakers make Southampton firm favourites as it stands, with BetVictor making them 5/4 to land GIbson ahead of Everton at 5/1.
