Former Aston Villa midfielder Lee Hendrie claims that Middlesbrough are in the race to sign him.

Hendrie is currently on the look out for a new club, Derby and Stoke are two clubs that have shown interest in the 30 year old.

But Hendrie is thought to be very keen on teaming up with his former captain Gareth Southgate. ‘Middlesbrough are the latest club to make an inquiry – there has been interest from eight,’ Hendrie told the News of the World.

‘I know Gareth well and admit it would be very tempting.’I’d like to stay in the Premiership and think I can still do a job here. ‘I hope to get a deal done with someone soon.’

I’m not sure that Lee hendrie is a player who we should be looking at. I cant see him playing week in week out for us, a very strange signing if true.

  • trust me, Hendrie can still do a job and i thinknk he will go to boro, due to the friendship with southgate, so dont be suprised to him in red next year!

  • Good squad player, and you always have our cast offs. Unfortunately I think you guys will struggle without mega bucks and the loss of Viduka and possibly Yakubu.

  • same here villan444, i agree with you. You had southgate, egiogh, boateng and possibly hendrie and you still arent where u want to be, be ready to face a tough season!!

  • that would be a typical signing from the short sighted southgate.
    maybe he will improve with experience but you wouldnt bet on it.

  • I can still do a job here. ‘I hope to get a deal done with someone soon. Bad news for the bloke that currently sweeps the stadium after the games, it look like little Lee wants his job.
