Middlesbrough will renew their attempts to capture James Harper from Reading after agreeing to sell Lee Cattermole to Wigan Athletic for Ã‚Â£3.5 million.
Cattermole, the England Under-21 midfield player, has been given permission to discuss personal terms with Steve BruceÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s team and his departure would free up money for Gareth Southgate who has admitted that Boro need to sell players before they can buy.
