According to Teesside Live, Middlesbrough are set to add Newcastle United coach Graeme Carrick to their coaching staff. Middlesbrough manager Michael Carrick has been in charge since October 2022, so he’s had plenty of experience working with a trusted coaching staff at the Riverside.



However, like with any team, coaches come and go, and new hires are made to strengthen the ranks behind the management. Carrick has had the similar experience in his debut with Boro.
Middlesbrough appear to be on the verge of adding a new member to their backroom staff, and boss Carrick is well-versed with the individual.

According to Teesside Live, Carrick’s younger brother Graeme is expected to join his backroom team from Newcastle United.

Boro sought the Magpies for permission to speak with the 39-year-old, which was granted. As a result, a move is inevitable when the brothers reunite at Riverside Stadium.

Carrick has spent his whole coaching career at Newcastle United, working in their academy. He is now the manager of their U18s and, in addition to his club duties, spent 15 years in the England setup from 2007 to 2022.

It remains to be seen when the transfer is finalized, but it represents a significant coup for the Championship team. The expectation is that having another pair of hands on deck at the Riverside will assist boss Carrick climb back up the Championship table.

If the transfer is approved, he will join Jonathan Woodgate, Alan Fettis, Grant Leadbitter, and others on the backroom team.

It is a much-needed appointment, since Aaron Danks is poised to join Vincent Kompany at Bayern Munich. The two previously worked together at Anderlecht and are planning to reunite in Germany.middlesbrough, Middlesbrough set to make Newcastle United swoop, talks to begin

Aside from coaching additions, Middlesbrough hopes to have a successful summer transfer window as they attempt to close the gap on the promotion race.

Boro sealed the second signing of the summer transfer season with a move for Delano Burgzorg over the weekend, after agreeing to keep Luke Ayling permanently following his successful loan spell at Leeds United.

The attacker’s signing keeps him in England after a spell with relegated Huddersfield Town in 2023/24.

The aim is that more new faces will join Ayling and Burgzorg via the door. Now that the window is fully open, there may be some more movement on the transfer front from here on out.
