Coventry City manager Andy Thorn is fuming about the way Middlesbrough are trying to unsettle Lukas Jutkiewicz.
Tony Mowbray had one bid accepted for the forward if you prefer to believe the North East press over the City Board, but after failing to come up with the money when the Bates sale to Swansea deal fell through, Middlesbrough have tried to take the former Everton and Motherwell player on loan.
Speaking to the CT, Andy Thorn said: "It's stuff that can unsettle a player and I have made a few calls and dealt with that side of it and I have spoken to Lukas and he is fine.
"So I am not happy with the way it has all been handled because I don't like people messing about with my players.
"It's not good and I don't like it."
