Middlesbrough are hoping to complete a £5m deal to sign Sunderland midfielder Paddy McNair today after a deal was resurrected over the weekend.

The Wearsiders accepted a bid last week, but Boro pulled out of the running after believing that the Northern Ireland international was still being offered to rival clubs

But talks between McNair’s representatives and Boro have now got a deal back on track and the 23-year-old is expected to have a medical today.

Nottingham Forest will spend the next 48 hours trying to push through a deal for Boro striker Patrick Bamford, with a big-money move having been mooted for the player, a lifelong Forest fan.

Boro face stiff competition in their quest to sign defensive target Aden Flint, with Burnley being the latest side linked with the 28-year-old. West Brom and Fulham are also keen.

West Ham United are reportedly keen on testing the resolve of Huddersfield Town by making a bid for key midfielder Aaron Mooy, impressing on World Cup duty for the Socceroos in Russia, and have been linked with an £18m move.

A host of top-flight clubs have an ongoing interest in Mooy, including Everton and Southampton.

Rotherham United are poised to make a move to bring in Fleetwood Town defender Cian Bolger, who impressed for the Lancashire outfit last term.

Parma look set to win the race to sign reported Leeds United midfield target Leo Stulak, who has impressed in Serie B with Venezia and also been linked with Genoa and Bologna.

Another rumoured European target of Leeds, St Pauli striker Marvin Ducksch is expected to join Fortuna Dusseldorf.

Ducksch enjoyed a prolific season on loan at Holstein Kiel last term, scoring 19 times.

Bolton Wanderers would have to find around £1m if they are to land Bradford City striker Charlie Wyke.

Phil Parkinson is a big fan of the 25-year-old, who has struck 19 goals in 42 games for the Bantams in League One over the past year-and-a-half and made tentative enquiries about his availability in January, but felt that the asking price was too high.

Wyke, brought in for a £250,000 fee from Carlisle United in January, 2017, is approaching the final year of his contract at City.
