Middlesbrough are believed to have made a bid for Leeds United striker Ross McCormack, according to Sky Sports.
Blackpool are also said to be monitoring the 26-year-old Scot, who netted the equaliser for his side against Brighton at Elland Road on Saturday.
Middlesbrough originally showed an interest in McCormack back in 2008, while they were still in the Premiership under Gareth Southgate, but no deal was struck and the striker ended up leaving Motherwell for Cardiff City before moving to Leeds in the summer of 2010.
Following a successful 2011/12 campaign, during which he finished Leeds’ top scorer with 19 goals, McCormack only ended up with seven goals last season after suffering an injury setback early in the season.
Yet the striker remains popular with his club’s fans, and there has been no previous suggestion that Leeds boss Brian McDermott is keen to offload the Scottish international, who still has two years left on his contract.
Middlesbrough manager Tony Mowbray has been searching for solutions to reverse Boro’s alarming dip in form since the turn of the year, with the frontline in need of strengthening following the departure of Scott McDonald, the club’s top scorer last season, who moved to Millwall after his £28,000-a-week contract was cancelled by mutual consent in July.
Meanwhile, Bristol City winger Albert Adomah is on Teesside for a medical ahead of a move to Middlesbrough after the two club's agreed a deal thought to be in excess of £1m.
The 25-year-old Ghana international has one year left on his current deal at Ashton Gate but has indicated that he does not wish to play in League One in the wake of the club’s relegation from the Championship last season.
