Tony Pulis

Several images have been doing the rounds on Twitter today that have led some Middlesbrough fans to believe Yannick Bolasie is at Middlesbrough’s training ground.

The images show Middlesbrough boss Tony Pulis and another member of his staff both stood with the same figure, which many people are speculating is Bolasie.

The Evening Gazette, Middlesbrough’s local paper is also reporting that Bolasie is at Boro’s training complex ahead of a season-long loan.

Bolasie’s Middlesbrough links

After failing to gain promotion to the Premier League last season, Middlesbrough have sold several of their top stars this summer.

Ben Gibson has gone to Burnley, Patrick Bamford to Leeds and Adama Traore to Wolves.

But it is the latter two of these players which Boro have still yet to replace.

Middlesbrough were already not overly blessed in their attacking department. So, to sell two of their forwards and not replace them would not be great.

This is something even Pulis himself has commented upon.

“At the moment our depth is just not strong enough.

“The quality in the group has to be improved and the depth has to be improved otherwise I’m absolutely convinced we’ll just fall away.

“I think you’ve only got to look at the squad to see that it needs to be strengthened.

”And we’re trying to do it. We’ve been trying to do it this week and unfortunately we’ve not been able to get anyone in again.”

One of the players Middlesbrough had been linked with earlier this month was indeed Yannick Bolasie.

However, there had seemingly been little development on that front, until these pictures emerged on Twitter today.
