Middlesbrough chasing Newcastle striker Best

Middlesbrough are chasing Newcastle United striker Leon Best.

The News of the World says Best almost signed for Gordon Strachan in January, only for a last-gasp call from Chris Hughton to take him to St James' Park instead.

Since then Best has struggled for opportunities at St James' Park and the signing of Hatem Ben Arfa has further pushed him down the pecking order.

Hughton has the in-form Andy Carroll, Kevin Nolan, Shola Ameobi and Ben Arfa to get the goals to keep the Toon in the Premier League.
