Breaking: Middlesbrough’s stance on move for 25-year-old also pursued by Derby County


Middlesbrough are not pursuing St. Johnstone striker Adama Sidibeh, a report from Teesside Live has said.

Middlesbrough will attempt to add new players this summer in order to improve on the 2023/24 season.

Boro had hoped for another promotion challenge, but a bad start and injury issues meant that their improved 2024 form was insufficient to propel them into the play-offs for the second successive season.


The expectation is that with the addition of some new faces, they will be able to reclaim their place in the top six the following season. Improvements will be made throughout the board, but one critical area to focus on is at the top.

Rumors point to St. Johnstone’s Adama Sidibeh as a potential target.

Middlesbrough has scored five goals in 15 games since its promotion from Warrington Rylands. They were recently linked with Derby County and Burnley.

According to a report from Teesside Live, Boro are not targeting Sidibeh.

A striker is wanted but the Championship side are willing to take their time for the right option to arise as they take a patient approach with their hunt for another talisman.

Extra goal threat

Middlesbrough already has talented attacking players, but acquiring more could help them regain promotion for the upcoming season.

Emmanuel Latte Lath finished the campaign in excellent form and is expected to repeat his achievement the following season. Isaiah Jones and Marcus Forss can also contribute, while youngster Josh Coburn will be eager to step up as he develops.

Bringing in another option perhaps paves the way for Matthew Hoppe to move on for good though it remains to be seen just what comes of his situation.

It looks as though Sidibeh won’t be the man coming in though with these fresh reports dismissing the recent links between Boro and the Gambian ace.

A smart approach?

Middlesbrough will profit from completing business early. It provides them plenty of time to work on the transfer market while also allowing Carrick plenty of time to get his new players settled at the Riverside.

Boro, on the other hand, can afford to be patient in their search for a striker because they already have a talisman in Latte Lath and other options up top.

They aren’t exactly shouting out for another alternative at the top, but if they want to add one, they should be patient in their approach to ensure they get the best option through the door.

Time will tell just who that is, with the summer transfer window yet to officially open and players still taking time to rest up after the conclusion of the season.
