Southampton are the latest club to be linked with Middlesbrough centre-back Ben Gibson.
The 24-year-old was one of Boro’s few shining lights in a woeful season which saw them drop out of the top-flight and join their north-east rivals Sunderland in next seasons Championship. Gibson, who won his first England call-up in March, has been touted as a £25 million target for Chelsea and Liverpool, but the homegrown talent looks set to rebuff all offers in favour of spearheading a return to the Premier League. The news will come as a welcome boost to new permanent boss Garry Monk who replaces Aitor Karanka at the helm. "Ben is obviously a big focal point," he said. "I've watched him over the last couple of seasons, and I'm well aware of him and what he can bring to the team. It's important you keep your best players and important you're able to keep a core together and give yourself the best possible opportunity of reaching the club's ambition, which is to go back to the Premier League. Ben is a big part of that." Thu, Jun 15, 2017 08:17:00 AM
