Middlesbrough have agreed a deal to sign Geremi from Chelsea only for the player to reject a return to Teesside. Middlesbrough have been chasing the
Cameroon international for some time as they look to bring him back to The Riverside. Geremi enjoyed a successful season-long loan at Boro in the
2002-03 campaign before moving to Chelsea.
The former Real Madrid player has now struggled to hold down a regular place in the Chelsea side this season and Boro hoped the lure of regular action
could tempt him to move back to the club. Boro are believed to have agreed a fee in the region of 3 million with Chelsea to re-sign Geremi, but the
player has stalled over the move.
