Middlesbrough are chasing Burnley winger Chris Eagles.

The former Manchester United midfielder was watched by Boro boss Gareth Southgate's spy Gordon McQueen in the Carling Cup semi-final defeat at Tottenham last week.

Boro are going to check again, with players to offer Burnley boss Owen Coyle in part exchange for the £5m-rated midfielder who only moved to Turf Moor in the summer.

Coyle is keen on Boro youngsters Tony McMahon and Rhys Williams.
