Manager Garry Monk is more than happy to see the latest transfer window finally closing.

The Boro boss has experienced a really hectic time of things with incoming and outgoing deals both into double figures, although sought after duo Ben Gibson and Adama Traore crucially remain at the Riverside despite plenty of interest.

“As a manager, it’s nice to finally have that window closed, and now the focus is on football and all speculation can stop until the next one,” Monk told The Northern Echo. “All the focus is on the football, and the games we have coming up.

“We can concentrate on the football without any speculation, or any doubt, or any cloud over anyone,” he added. “That frees the mind and we can get on with the business in hand.”
