With Aston Villa centre-half James Chester continuing to build himself up after his lengthy spell on the sidelines after playing through the pain barrier for us owing to a serious lack of forethought in the 2018/19 campaign, the 30-year-old Welsh international clearly needs game time and Championship side Middlesbrough are now being linked with having an interest in him.

Thoughts on Chessie remain mixed given the players we’ve brought in, but plenty of fans still think he has a role to play with us despite how he now has to manage the issues he caused himself by playing on previously – but a loan deal to improve his game time and get him some confidence could suit all parties here.

The rumour is simple, Jonathan Woodgate would like him for his experience and Chester is out of contract in the summer, so is a more cost effective target for them.

We’ll have to see if anything comes of this though.
