Middlesbrough have decided to end their interest in Hull defender Harry Maguire after their most recent bid was rejected.
Aitor Karanka has been one of the busiest Premier League managers this summer as he looks to put his squad in a strong position to beat relegation.
However, the Spaniard has had no luck in trying to strengthen at the back with top target Neven Subotic’s move from Borussia Dortmund stopped by injury.
The Boro boss turned his attention to Maguire but after a £5million offer was rejected by the Tigers he will again have to outline a new target to come in at the Riverside.
Hull have been hit with an injury crisis over the summer and are already light on numbers heading into the Premier League season, which has led to them standing firm over the former Sheffield United man.
