Middlesbrough are considering a swoop for former Celtic target Stephen O'Donnell, according to reports.

Scotland cap O'Donnell has been in fine form this season for Kilmarnock.

However the right-back has so far refused to sign a new deal at Rugby Park and his contract runs out at the end of this season.

This has put several clubs on red alert to the potential of landing him on the cheap.

And, according to the Daily Mail, the Riverside club are keeping a close eye on his progress.

We told previously how Neil Lennon was keen on O'Donnell at one time but the signings of Hatem Abd Elhamed and Moritz Bauer calmed chat of a swoop.

Stoke City, Derby County and Nottingham Forest have also previously been linked with a move for the defender in recent times.
