Hoyte bid from Middlesbrough
Tuesday 12 August 2008
Middlesbrough owner Steve Gibson has confirmed the club are awaiting a response from Arsenal after submitting an offer for defender Justin Hoyte.
Right-back Hoyte, 23, is seen by Boro as the ideal replacement for Luke Young who was allowed to move to Aston Villa last week.
Gibson told Sky Sports News: "We have submitted a bid and we are waiting for Arsenal to respond.
"We've given it our best offer and we hope that it happens, but if it doesn't we move on."
Diving in at the deep end is no excuse for shirking the style stakes
