Middlesborough looking to loan Blackburn Rovers starlet

Blackburn youngster Hanley is certainly one for the futureBlackburn Rovers are believed to be allowing their young centre-back Grant Hanley a loan move away next season with Middlesborough apparently the most likely destination.

The 19 year old recently scored his first goal against Fulham last month but with a lack of first team appearances with the likes of Christopher Samba and Blackburn captain Ryan Nelson at the hub of the Ewood Park defence, it has been suggested that more playing time with another club will help his development.

The player has been earmarked for big things to come and interest from other clubs is likely to increase although Rovers will not be looking to sell their starlet quite yet and a loan move looks much more likely over the summer than an actual sale.

Should Middlesbrough not agree a loan deal for the centre-back during the summer then it is believed that numerous other clubs will look to bring the player into a Championship campaign.
