Leyton Orient on the look out for a non league striker - currently three being looked at - David Tarpey at Maidenhead, 45 goals last season but manager Alan Devonshire wants to hold him to his current contract. Matt Paterson at Oxford City, 60 goals in last three seasons and 5 already this season. Matt Blake at Leiston, 40 goals last season the outsider.

Looks like Aldershot Town striker Brett Williams is off north of the border with St Mirren and St Johnstone keen to take the hitman.

Troy Deeney of Watford on WBA radara.

Gosport Boro striker Matt Paterson being courted by Portsmouth, Oxford, Swindon and now Crawley.

Andy Johnson will snub Wycombe and sign for Luton.

And finally, Rotherham's Fabian Brandy will sign for Rochdale.

quick re-brief of our targets:
Fernando Pacheco - becoming more likely, yet it is getting even quieter as there isn't much notice to this, and it is claimed to be on a loan until the end of the season.
Juan Muniz - all rounded midfielder who can easily give Tomlin a run for his place and is very competitive
Niguez - basically a full on, but younger, version of Whitehead (who is way past his peak in my opinion)

Our right back solution has been resurrected by the arrival of Tomas Kalas so there won't be any more arrivals for the Right back spot, however, two new targets who are under the radar from media have been linked with Boro. These are Tom Cairney who has been mentioned now and again, but nothing has went ahead just yet ( ). The second target is a versatile centre back who can also play in midfield, his name is Marios Oikonomou and he is only 22 years old, so has time to improve even further. He has played for Greece Under 21s and has a good relationship with Dimi Konstantopolous, who we could use to persuade Oikonomou to come to Middlesbrough.

Extra: Mark Hughes has let Robert Huth go out on loan to a Championship club. Watford are winning the race at the moment, but 2 other Football League clubs are interested.

Fernando Pacheco on a loan until the end of the season may have become even more quiet, but it is still going on and is looking increasingly likely as Konstantopolous turns 37, we have Mejias as our back up at the moment and Karanka is concerned that if we get promoted, how will they cope?.

I know we still have Ripley, but he still needs experience, as that is beneficial to both him and the club, look at how Reach and Gibson turned out, an influential duo who play a significant part in Karanka's future plans.

Niguez (also known as Jony) is a younger kind of version of Whitehead is way past his peak, whereas Muniz is a more all-rounded midfielder.


3.) 14 Jan 2015 15:24:07
My mate from whom I get my information was here and I put the above names to him. Pacheco remains a target but Ivan Perez Munoz advises that Mejias outshone Pacheco at Madrid, my friend wouldn't be surprised if we swooped for a more experienced goalie whilst he knows Aitor to be an admirer of Muniz and Niguez but not interested in signing either yet (I must stress the yet apparently). He has heard nothing of Cairney but says it could be possible. There is no interest in Oikonomou though my friend is an admirer of his, Karanka has no awareness of the player. Fran Merida deal could be back on after Milos Veljkovic's loan extension failed.


4.) 15 Jan 2015 07:08:38
Fernando Pacheco is a younger keeper than Mejias, and Mejias hasn't really proven himself to be an adequate keeper who will be able to replace Konstantopolous in the near future.

Oikonomou is a 22 year old central defender who is well known by Dimi Konstantopolous as they have played in the Greece National acedemy side together, (Oikonomou was just 16 then).

Cairney is a target that is going under the radar as there has been hardly, or no mention at all, yet it is a likely possibility he could arrive in Teesside considering Veljkovic has went back to Spurs, and Whitehead seemingly past his peak and seems to be more fitted to our right back role, thus leaving just Clayton, Leadbitter and our young future prospect Bryn Morris as our only Centre midfielders. Muniz and Niguez are also potential targets to arrive in teesside.

Extra: I've been reading the Evening Gazette and it is suggested that an Emerson-type of midfielder is set to arrive on Teesside. Anyone got any idea who this could be?

Oikonomou and Dimi did not play together in the Greek youth teams because Dimi would have been ineligible to do so six years ago as he would have been 31. Furthermore, Cairney is not someone who the club have expressed an interest in but I personally would love to see him at the Riverside. Muniz and Niguez cannot be called targets yet as Boro have no interest in actually signing them, but Karanka does admire the players. As for the Emerson article in the gazette you have misunderstood. If Pacheco does come in it will be if/when Mejias departs so Pacheco can be second choice goalkeeper

7.) I meant like player/coach type, you know what I mean, sorry about that little mix up.
And no I have not misunderstood the Emerson article as Karanka is looking for a loanee who can replace Milos Veljkovic.
I think everyone would love Tom Cairney at the Riverside! He is a good player and even though it is not out with the media, Karanka isn't impressed with Mejias, so is considering whether it'll be more beneficial to send him out on loan to free up wages or to sell him permanently to free the transfer budget up as well as the wages. What would you do if you were Karanka?


8.) 18 Jan 2015 16:35:23
Oh I thought you meant that their was some kind of friendship between the two Greeks. In fact, it's quite probable that the two have never met. The Emerson article was in no way a reference to any potential incomer, it was just to remember a fantastic player. Cairney, ideal signing. Karanka has said he will not sign a new first choice goalkeeper until the summer, but if whether Mejias is sold or loaned out, Pacheco would be the replacement second choice. If I were Karanka I'd pack the poor lad back of to Spain where he is more comfortable

James Constable, Eastleigh striker will re-sign for Oxford United.

Cheltenham and Soutend United are monitoring John Akinde Barnet's free scoring striker. Scorer of 16 goals this season he is hotly tipped to join Cheltenham in January.

Portsmouth, Plymouth and Swindon are all tracking ex Burton Albion striker Matt Paterson. Paterson scorer of 16 goals and 17 assists already this season is currently playing with Conference South Side Gosport Borough.

And finally Dartford will be hoping to re-sign Charlie Sheringham from Conf South side Ebbsfleet United.

Please avoid using the word 'Boro' in posts not relating to Middlesbrough, Peterborough or Stevenage Borough, otherwise we end up with your Sunday league nonsense all over our pages. Thank you.

Plymouth Argyle still keen to take Aldershot striker Brett Williams

Accrington Stanley are looking at bringing in Salisbury striker Jamie White

The rumours are flying about in the lower leagues:

James Constable Oxford to Rotherham or Swindon Town
Brett Williams Aldershot to Plymouth Argyle
Andre Grey Luton to Coventry or Spersonhrope
Jake Hyde Barnet to Wimbledon or Burton Albion
Matt Paterson Aldershot to Burton Albion or Bristol Rovers
Lee Gregory Halifax to Huddersfield
Sam Winnall Scunthorpe to Brentford
Luke Ayling Yeovil to Watford
Dan Bentley Southend to Peterborough
Reece Styche FGR to Barnet


1.) 06 May 2014 13:25:02
Luke Ayling would be a good asset for Watford. Talented 22 year old defender


2.) Danny Kedwell Gillingham to Wimbledon


3.) 06 May 2014 20:48:38
I have heard Scunthorpe (the team I support)have 3 main transfers targets in the summer will hoskins, o, toole and andy butler is there any truth to theses rumours. Is there any more targets that I don't know. And who do you think will leave scunny in the summer.


4.) James Constable to Rotherham or Swindon, it really is silly season. Not good enough for League 2 let alone League 1.


5.) 06 May 2014 22:54:11
With Rovers letting 15 players go, and of the retained players, at least 8 players will be moving on to clubs in league 1 or 2 there is going to be a major rebuild at the mem - Luton and Wrexham had 29 and 27 players for the season 2013/14 so Rovers to have any chance to return to league two next year - in time for the new ground - I make that they will need to sign at least 24 players? and I can't see that happening -I hope it does. let's hope the players they sign are better then the last 3 years as the football at the MEM has been the worst I have seen in over 40years of supporting the club, Come on Rovers let's get back to 10 years ago were we were heading up the league and not down


6.) 07 May 2014 09:46:44
Watford have taken an interest once again in Reece Wabara who recently left Manchester City.


7.) 07 May 2014 17:27:23
please can anyone tell me who watford are trying to sign please.


8.) We are trying to sign according to the Watford local paper, Matej Vydra most probably a season long loan and sign Daniel Tozser on a permanent contract

You can add to your list of departures, Alex McDonald, Zander Diamond, Phil Edwards and Dominic Knowles.

I believe Gary Rowett is very keen on Rochdale's centre back Ollie Lancashire and recently released from Preston midfielder John Moushino.

Who Zola? He was so good for Burton last season.

Yeovil see Williams as a perfect replacement for Madden, indeed he's stronger and better in the air than Madden. As for not being good enough for L1/2 - he's made a big difference at Aldershot and in the League, deserves a shot.
