Middlesbrough have been reported as keen on Derby County defender Cyrus Christie.

The 24-year-old Republic of Ireland international right-back still has a year remaining on his current deal and, according to the Telegraph, could be available for around £1.5m.

However, Boro are likely to face significant competition with Premier League newcomers Brighton and Championship rivals Reading similarly showing an interest.

Christie made 30 appearances for the Rams last season and was previously with Coventry City.
