Middlesbrough: Britton Wasn't A Target For Us

Middlesbrough chairman Steve Gibson has slammed reports suggesting that they were interested in signing Leon Britton.

The Championship side were one of a number of clubs linked with a move for the midfielder, but the Teesiders insist he was being 'pushed by his agent', and he wasn't a target.

Gibson told the club's official site:

'I am angry and hugely disappointed to read reports suggesting that we lost out in trying to sign Leon Britton. That's simply untrue,'

'Britton was never one of our main targets. He was simply a player who had been pushed by his agent. He is absolutely no loss to us,' he stressed.

'We received an unsolicited proposal from his agent some weeks ago, which we dismissed out of hand as the figures were well beyond any valuation we might have placed on the player.'
