Middlesbrough to ease wage bill in January
Manager Tony Mowbray admits that the Teesside outfit will need to reduce their wages and has warned fans that there will not be any spending during the month-long market.
"My hope is that it will be a busy January but we won't be splashing money about," he said.
"When you speak to other managers, it's clear we have a very much higher wage bill for this league so we've got to reduce that.
"We've got to lose some players and try to bring a balance so that we can start to produce a team that can score goals, keep clean sheets, win games and excite the supporters."
