‘Boro’ manager zooms in on out-of-contract Fuller
MIDDLESBROUGH - Manager Tony Mobray is the latest in a string of managers who are keen on signing Jamaica’s out-of-contract forward Ricardo Fuller.
The Middlesborough boss has added five new signings at Gigg Lane, but has plans to have one or two more fresh faces.
He is intent on including a new striker that will add some much-needed experience from the top two divisions.
And after becoming a free agent this summer, former Stoke City frontman Fuller is a man Mowbray thinks could play a critical role in his side.
A number of forwards have been considered, but Fuller's availability and attributes have made him an ideal candidate to provide the Middlesbrough squad with a different option in attack.
However, the 32-year-old Fuller been attracting interest from Hull City, Ipswich Town, Cardiff City, and Wigan Athletic.
However, with nothing signed and sealed, Mowbray has entered the fray and Fuller could team up with former Stoke teammate Jonathan Woodgate at the Riverside Stadium in the coming weeks.
Middlesborough compete in the England’s second tier, The Championship.
