Last updated : 21 June 2009 By Boro Mad

Gareth Southgate will want one of Martin O’Neill’s homegrown heroes, Gardner, in part exchange.

Southgate had been considering a loan move for Gardner, currently in Sweden with the England Under-21 squad.

So while he is loath to lose Wheater, the Boro boss would consider a deal involving cash plus Gardner, who is well regarded by O’Neill and has three years left on his contract at Villa Park.
