Siena are still interested in taking Massimo Maccarone on loan for the season.
Siena are ready to re-open talks with Middlesbrough regarding the future of Massimo Maccarone, according to reports in Italy.
Maccarone enjoyed a successful loan spell with the Tuscan side last season, scoring seven goals in eight league starts.
Siena were looking to take Maccarone on a season-long loan, but the Italian striker recently returned to England after negotiations between the two sides broke down, with the Italian club not prepared to pay all of the 25-year-old's salary.
Despite dipping into the transfer market for Erjon Bodgani and Roberto Nanni, speculation persists that president Paolo De Luca is set to once again check on the possibility of loaning the Middlesbrough forward.
Maccarone recently attracted interest from Championship side Southampton, but he was not prepared to play in the lower echelons of English football.
