Middlesbrough have opened talks with Everton about securing loan star Mo Besic on a permanent deal.

The 26-year-old midfielder returned to Boro on deadline day loan deal, after a permanent move collapsed late on.

Besic has once again become a key figure in Boro’s push for promotion and Tony Pulis is pushing the club’s hierarchy to get a deal done before possible interest from Premier League and other top-flight clubs from around Europe solidifies.

Boro believe that German-born Besic is already attracting interest from rival clubs and so they want a deal done before January if possible – despite the fact he is on a season-long deal.

Everton are open to a deal, given Besic has over two-years left on his contract at Goodison Park.
