Alves Looking To Leave Boro?

Last updated : 09 March 2009 By Boro Mad

Southgate stuck with the XI that crashed to a 4-0 defeat at Tottenham on Wednesday night and many fans Alves could be at least an option from the bench.

The Holland international is tipped to leave the Riverside in the summer, as he seems to have taken the stick for recent results due to some shocking finishing in front of goal.

Southgate has looked to other alternatives, but there must still be some place for him in the run in to the relegation fight, as striker options are short.

We've been expecting goals from midfield, but that isn't going to happen without someone with finishing ability to worry defenders.
