Kieran Scott emphasizes that Middlesbrough’s option to purchase Sam Greenwood from Leeds United is not a straightforward process and cannot be executed instantly. Despite Greenwood’s impressive performance for Boro, where he currently leads the team’s goal-scoring tally with four goals, Scott clarifies that the situation is more complex.

The agreed £1.5 million deal with Leeds for Greenwood’s potential transfer adds to the appeal of securing him permanently. However, Scott, the head of football, cautions against assuming an immediate acquisition. During a studio interview with BBC Tees, he explains the intricacies of the loan agreement, emphasizing that Greenwood is still a Leeds player, and the process demands respect for the existing arrangement.

Reflecting on his history with Greenwood, Scott recalls having observed the player since he was 15 at Sunderland, expressing admiration for his talent.

Now, with Greenwood making a positive impact at Boro, Scott remains optimistic about the ongoing collaboration between the player and the club.
