Middlesbrough manager Neil Warnock has said the amount of money Town are spending they should win the league.

The Boro boss was speaking in the wake of Hayden Coulson's loan move to Portman Road that was sealed this week.

Warnock said he didn’t have much choice regarding left-back Coulson's move to the Blues and feels Coulson and Town could be celebrating come the end of the season.

“I just think the money they're spending they should win the league really," Warnock told the Hartlepool Mail.

“They are really splashing out and have a new owner and everything. I think his agent had sorted it out weeks ago really, kept knocking on my door now for weeks and it seemed logical to let him go if I’m not going to play him regularly.

“I didn’t have much choice on that, if I’m honest,” Warnock said when asked about the switch.

Hayden wanted to go for the season. I think Cooky (Town manager Paul Cook) was ringing him every minute of the day so there’s not a lot I can do.
