Middlesbrough are digging in their heels over defender Ben Gibson.

The Daily Mail says Boro are determined to rebuff offers for Gibson in the January transfer window.

Gibson is attracting interest from a host of Premier League clubs following a string of impressive displays on his first season in the top-flight.

Chelsea and Everton are among the clubs to have scouted the 23-year-old intensively this season.

But Boro chairman Steve Gibson – also the defender’s uncle – is prepared to reject offers for his nephew when the transfer window re-opens next month as they brace themselves for interest.
