The 24-year-old could make his senior global debut when England take on France in a friendly tomorrow, having been an unused substitute in Sunday's World Cup qualifier with Scotland, and his performances in the Premier League last season make him one of the most in-demand players in the country.

Gary Monk's last role was with Leeds United but left on the 25th of May as he couldn't reach an agreement with the new owner of the club, Andrea Radrizzani.

"My only focus is Middlesbrough Football Club and doing the best job I can", the manager said at a press conference.

However, new Boro manager Garry Monk is reluctant to see his captain sold.

"After the season I had I was expecting to go forward in that process and be at Leeds".

The 38-year-old had been linked with Sky Bet Championship rivals and North-East neighbours, Sunderland, but said Boro and chairman Steve Gibson were "the right fit" for him. I don't want to go into the details.

James said after Sunday's loss he is no worse for wear, that it wasn't anything some food and wine couldn't remedy. Irving has struggled through two games and not been efficient, and a lot of that is due to Thompson.

Hull have appointed former Russian Federation boss Leonid Slutsky as their new head coach.

"Promotion has to be the ambition, and that's the kind of challenge that you want".

There has also been plenty of speculation surrounding the future of captain Ben Gibson - who is now on global duty with England - with several Premier League clubs reportedly interested in the central defender. You look from before, they had a good progression from the club, built its way to the Premier League and shows it's a club that works in a good way.

"If a big club from the Premier League comes, it might be another story".

Discussions regarding the make-up of Monk's backroom staff are being held with further announcements expected in due course, with United first-team coach James Beattie tipped to join up officially with Boro shortly.
