Report: Boro tracking League Two star Jevani Brown

Middlesbrough are one of several clubs chasing League Two hotshot Jevani Brown, according to The Mirror.

The 23-year-old has had an impressive season so far and his form has lead to a handful of Championship clubs chasing his signature. Sheffield United, Sheffield Wednesday, Wolves, Derby and Barnsley are all in the mix for the forward.

Brown came through the ranks at Peterborough United and was a regular for their youth sides before an off-field incident marred his chances of establishing himself at London Road. He was subsequently released in November 2013.

A stint in non-league soon followed but after a free scoring season with St. Neots Town, League Two Cambridge gave Brown a chance to revive his career in the Football League, signing him on a two-year deal in the summer.

Although the Jamaican hasn’t been as prolific in front of goal for the U’s, he has been impressive on the assist trail, having been involved in nine out of the previous 11 goals netted by Shaun Derry’s side before the new year.

Brown, who had been on trial at Birmingham, has played the majority of the league season as an attacking midfielder, but has also been utilised in central midfield as well as on the flanks and up front.

“If I’m being honest that’s [goals] one of the main things that I’ve been trying to add to my game,” Brown told Cambridge News last month.

“The goals win you matches at the end of the day and that’s what we’re trying to do – win matches. I think I had a couple in the past few games now so hopefully this run can continue and I can carry one scoring.

“I’ve been practicing my shooting but the gaffer (Shaun Derry) and even Joe (Dunne) have been saying to me that I’ve got a good strike so any time I’ve got half a yard just hit it because you never know what could happen and I’m starting to do that more and it’s starting to pay off.”
