Middlesbrough are still working on completing deals ahead of their training camp in Portugal next week.

Manager Garry Monk remains hopeful of securing Norwich City midfielder Jonny Howson in a £5m move, reports the Northern Echo. Howson, 29, has already turned down the offer of a new deal at Carrow Road.
