The Villains have already had two bids for the 21-year-old knocked back by Boro and have seen a third worth around £7.5m also rejected. Boro reportedly value Rogers at £12m and are holding out for that sum this month.

Rogers moved to the Riverside Stadium for just £1.5m from Manchester City last summer, but his great form under Michael Carrick has seen his value skyrocket. The Citizens inserted a significant sell-on clause for Rogers, meaning they will be entitled to a chunk of a transfer fee of Rogers ever leaves Teesside.
