The MirrorMiddlesbrough boss Gareth Southgate has launched a £2million raid for Burnley's Chris Eagles. Southgate is ready to test the Clarets' resolve to hang on to the
winger , who has played a major role in Burnley's success this season.
Boro are also favourites to sign out-of-favour Marlon Harewood, who can quit Aston Villa when a new striker is signed.
Chris Eagles, yes! Marlon Harewood, no!
What is this all about? Harewood is a type of player that, on his day, can score against the best in the world. Unfortunately those days only come every February 29th, so as this year is not a leap-year we can forget about this option. What about Alves, Tuncay and Mido??
I want Chris Eagles to sign just so I can put a post up titled "The Eagle Has Landed". I don't care how good he is!
Come On Boro
