Middlesbrough have made three signings so far this January in Patrick Bamford, Mikael Soisalo and Rudy Gestede, and Aitor Karanka says he is after more reinforcements:
Bamford rejoined the Smoggies on a four-and-a-half-year deal yesterday.
“I said always the main position I want to strengthen is the wings as the only quick player we have is Adama,” said Karanka.
“I want to bring another but we have 2 weeks.
“The club is working well behind the scenes and knows the players I like and would want to bring in.”
“I am really pleased Patrick Bamford is back. He’s a player I like a lot and he has played his best football with us. The most important thing is to recover Patrick’s confidence. He can be as important for us as he was two years ago,” he told reporters.
Patrick can play any attacking position. His best characteristic is that he is always thinking forward, which we need right now.
