CON­NOR Ri­p­ley hopes to be Mid­dles­brough’s No.1 goal­keeper next sea­son af­ter a stun­ning year on loan at Old­ham.

Ri­p­ley kept 18 clean sheets for the Lat­ics and was named in League One’s team of the sea­son.

“I want to be play­ing at the club I have sup­ported since I was a kid,” he said. “But ul­ti­mately, it is not up to me. If they don’t think I am ready, then I will prob­a­bly go back out on loan.”

The Lat­ics have re­leased six play­ers: winger Lee Croft, 31, mid­fielder Josh Law, 27, left-back Jamie Reck­ord, 25, striker Michael Ngoo, 24, mid­fielder Lee Knight, 19, and de­fender Charles Dunne, 24.
