Middlesbrough manager Tony Mowbray has revealed he is under no pressure to sell any of his emerging youngsters.

Boro are expected to see changes over the next few months due to chairman Steve Gibson's plan to reduce the playing staff's £24 million wage bill in time for next season.

However, despite the expected changes at the Riverside, Mowbray insists the club don't have to offload their young talent.

"We have to reduce our wage bill quite considerably. How do we do that? We will wait and see," he told The Northern Echo.

"In my mind and the chairman's mind we have players we will not be selling, but they will probably be the ones who we get the phone calls for. I am under no pressure to sell.

"There are other players we might have to listen to offers for even though they have done well for us. The message to supporters would be that there are certain players at our club we don't have to sell. If we do sell someone, I will explain to supporters the reason why."
