Middlesbrough bid for Arsenal defender Hoyte
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.'
