George Friend: Attracting interest from Stoke, West Ham & West Brom

Sky Bet

Sky Sports understands a number of Premier League clubs are tracking Middlesbrough defender George Friend.

Friend has been a stand-out performer for Middlesbrough this season since his arrival from Doncaster Rovers last summer.

The 25-year-old's performances have not gone unnoticed with Friend's versatility in that he can play left-back as well as centre-back making him an attractive proposition for interested clubs.

West Ham, West Brom and Stoke are all thought to be in the market for a new left-back and Friend is understood to figure highly on their wanted lists.

Middlesbrough are keen to fend off interest in Friend with the former Wolves man establishing himself as a key performer in Tony Mowbray's side.
