Former Cardiff City star Nathaniel Mendez-Laing has been released by Middlesbrough just four months after joining the club.
The winger was sacked by Cardiff on the eve of last season after failing a drugs test, but was later reunited with former boss Neil Warnock at the Riverside back in January.
However, the 29-year-old has largely struggled to nail down a regular first-team place, and made just nine appearances for Boro last season, netting one goal and earning one assist.
It seems his future could now lie away from Teesside, although his situation doesn't yet seem to be completely resolved.
According to GazetteLive, the winger could well be given a pre-season to prove his fitness and, should no other offers materialise and the player himself manages to prove himself, there could yet be scope for a new, longer-term deal.
Leeds United have ended their interest in Liverpool’s Harry Wilson, according to Football Insider.
The Welshman has spent a season on loan at Cardiff City, racking up an impressive 19 goal contributions in the Championship this season.
“However, a recruitment source has told Football Insider Leeds have moved on from the left-sided attacker and are instead targeting other attacking options,” Wayne Veysey wrote. “It is understood Liverpool will listen to offers for Wilson this summer and £15million will seal a deal.”
At 24-years-old, the forward is running out of time to make enough of an impact at his parent club to work his way into Jurgen Klopp’s first-team plans.

With his contract set to expire in 2023, it would not be entirely surprising if we were preparing to offload the Wales international this summer for roughly around the reported £15m figure.
Considering that player sales will continue to factor into the scale of transfer business we do, we’d expect Wilson – among a number of other likely contenders, including Marko Grujic – to face the transfer chopping block.
As positive a season as the winger has enjoyed, it’s difficult to see him breaking into the first-team squad with Harvey Elliott also competing for a place and Klopp being set on securing an additional forward to compliment the front-three.
I honestly think we could get him in on another loan.
Not saying we should have him back, just that he is or was a decent player to have in a squad.
