Tony Mowbray: Middlesbrough manager says there is no pressure to sell any of his players
Middlesbrough manager Tony Mowbray says he will only sell one of the club's key players if the price is right and insists there is no pressure to cash in.
Mowbray is keen to construct a squad capable of challenging for promotion to the Premier League this season and has already signed the likes of Jonathan Woodgate and Grant Leadbitter.
However, he is also trying to fend off interest in his players, with Rhys Williams and Marvin Emnes among those to have been linked with top-flight clubs.
"At this moment there's no pressure from above to sell anybody," Mowbray told the Evening Gazette.
"I think the philosophy is every player has their price but we are in no rush to lose any of the players we want to keep.
"I'm under no pressure to sell any players. In fact the chairman would rather keep them all and have a real good shot at it next season.
"And yet my philosophy is, if I felt the price was right for a certain player and I felt I could utilise the money coming in to buy another two or three players that might strengthen the squad, then those are the sort of issues that myself, the chairman and the chief exec would discuss."
