Ben Gibson Given Permission to Train With Middlesbrough
Burnley Football Club have this afternoon confirmed they have given permission for defender Ben Gibson to train with his former club Middlesbrough for one week, the Clarets signed him from Middlesbrough in August 2018 for £15million, however he has made just one Premier League appearance in two years.
Burnley said in an statement this afternoon that defender Gibson had “made it clear that he wanted to leave” in the January transfer window, but the club “did not receive an offer it felt was acceptable”. There has been a number of rumours coming out of the club saying that Gibson has had words with the management team and coaches about his recent attitude in training and that he has been told that he will be training with the Clarets U23 squad for the rest of the season, he has therefore made the decision to train with his former club.
Gibson, made 185 league appearances for Middlesbrough and was called up to the England squad in March 2017, despite having two years remaining on his Burnley contract it looks like the Clarets defender may be on the move come the end of the season.
