Report: Everton midfielder set for late loan move to top-eight side
Everton midfielder Mo Besic has been the subject of interest from Championship outfit Middlesbrough, according to a report.
The Liverpool Echo report that Boro’ boss Tony Pulis is keen on bringing the out of favour enforcer to the Riverside on a loan deal.
Besic has not earned regular first team football since returning from his season ending injury sustained during Ronald Koeman’s first season in charge.
However, it is reported that talks are in the preliminary stages between the two clubs over a short-term loan move.
Pulis had best negotiate with haste, as the January transfer window is about to shut.
Football Insider verdict:
It is clear that Besic’s future does not lie at Goodison Park. The Bosnian international has only featured eight times this season, mostly as a squad rotation player. Boro’ are in need of competition amongst their ranks as they fight for promotion, so the deal would suit both parties, as Sam Allardyce would get another name off of his wage books. The deal is reported as to being in the early stages, so negotiations will have to heat up, as the time to sign players is quickly running out. Pulis is renown for preferring combative midfield players who can help in defending, so Besic’s style of play would suit the Welshman’s plans.
