Boro keen on Chelsea duo

Middlesbrough boss Aitor Karanka confirmed he is aiming to sign two players on loan from Chelsea after watching his side win 3-0 at Oldham in the first round of the Capital One Cup.

Boro are chasing striker Patrick Bamford and midfielder George Saville as they bid to launch a Sky Bet Championship promotion campaign.

We are improving every day and showing we are a good team, but I also want to sign more players.

We are not strong enough at the moment. I want players who can't sleep because they are worried that someone else will take their place.

I hope we will sign the two from Chelsea. The club are working on that, but we have got seven games in 22 days so I'm concentrating on the games.

Emnes set for Swansea switch

Swansea are set to sign Marvin Emnes on loan from Middlesbrough, Press Association Sport understands.

The 25-year-old Dutchman had one-month spell with the Swans three seasons ago, making himself a fans' favourite by scoring the winner in a south Wales derby win over Cardiff.

Swansea have tried to bring the striker back to the Liberty Stadium on several occasions since, and they look to have succeeded on his occasion with moves for Tom Ince, Anthony Pilkington and Nacer Chadli having failed to come to fruition.

The deal will see Emnes, who has scored just once for Boro this term, make the move to south Wales until the end of the season.
