Martin Braithwaite joined Middlesbrough from Toulouse in 2017 and wanted to leave the club in the summer.

Earlier in August, Tony Pulis confirmed the player’s desire to move to Spain, but no deal took shape and the Denmark international continued at the Riverside.

The 27-year-old was part of his national squad during the international break and while speaking to Danish publication Tipsbladet, he refused to commit his long-term future to the Championship side.

When asked if he would stay with his current employer until the end of the season, he said: “Yes. I do not think so much about things. I play soccer and focus on the ambition, which is moving up [to the Premier League].”

“…you cannot really say what’s going to happen in six months. You can only live in the present and that’s what I’m trying to do.”

After 17 matches, his side are now sitting second in the table with 31 points, two points behind leaders Norwich City and the Dane remains hopeful they’ll finish this season in a good position and return to the top flight club competition in England.

“We are in a great position. We are on the rise, and that’s the ambition so it’s just about continuing it. I also think that’s how it ends, but we know there are lots of matches yet, and we’re just continuing to build on,” the forward explained.

Braithwaite’s contract runs out in 2021. He’s made 15 appearances for Boro in the league this season and scored three goals in the process.
