Chelsea, Man Utd and Liverpool face massive hurdle in their attempts to sign England youngster

Middlesbrough are confident of keeping star defender Ben Gibson. The Teesiders, who have been relegated from the Premier League, believe the player’s roots will make it difficult for him to leave them this summer.

Boro manager Steve Agnew, claims that Ben Gibson is currently very happy at the Riverside stadium and is willing to stay and help them push for an immediate return to the Premier League next season.

Gibson received an England call-up during this season, which was a high point of his career that has also seen the English top six clubs linked with a move for him.

Despite their relegation from the English top flight, Boro are one of the least conceding teams in the Premier League and they have conceded fewer goals than Liverpool and other top teams in the league this season.

Ben signed a new five-year deal with the club during the season, and Agnew believes that he would stick around to honour that deal.

Jurgen Klopp, Antonio Conte and Jose Mourinho are among coaches who have asked their scouts to look at the defender, and they are believed to be preparing bids for the player if they miss out on their main targets. © 2017 Frontier Theme
