Reports on Wednesday suggested the Australia international was set to join Liverpool, but Boro have shot down the claims.

"Boro have this afternoon confirmed that they have not reached an agreement with any club for the sale of goalkeeper Brad Jones,'' a statement on the club's official website said.

However, manager Gordon Strachan refused to confirm that Jones would be in the squad for the trip to face Leicester on Saturday.

"I've no idea, we'll pick a squad tomorrow of available people,'' he said. "The big bonus is Jason Steele did terrifically well at Chesterfield.''
