Everton, Southampton chasing deal for Middlesbrough defender Ben Gibson

Everton and Southampton are chasing a deal for Middlesbrough defender Ben Gibson.

The Mirror says Boro have brought in Paddy McNair from Sunderland and are close to landing Aden Flint from Bristol City.

Now top-flight duo Everton and Southampton are both considering testing Boro's resolve over stopper Gibson.

Boro fought tooth and nail to keep Gibson, 25, last summer following relegation as they rejected bids from West Brom.

But owner Steve Gibson, who is the uncle of the defender, may now let his nephew go to play top-flight football again.
