It is getting desperate for the Toon boss, having lost out on a number of strikers this week.

And with the transfer deadline just hours away, it seems Middlesbrough is about as far as he will travel.

Viduka is said to be available for £2m, but would Boro manager Gareth Southgate sell him to his nearest rivals?

There is a lot of bad blood over Jonathan Woodgate’s snub to join the ‘little club in Yorkshire’, and the Smogs are gloating at the moment.

I’m sure they would not be amused if there star striker moved up the A19.
