West Ham co-chairman David Gold has dismissed speculation linking Michail Antonio with a move to newly promoted Middlesbrough.
Antonio enjoyed an excellent first season at West Ham, scoring nine goals in all competitions as Slaven Bilic's team finished seventh in the Premier League - clinching a Europa League spot while also reaching the quarter-finals of the FA Cup.
A report in the Evening Standard claimed Middlesbrough had identified winger Antonio as a top transfer target for their first season back in the top flight.
But Gold was quick to put that speculation to bed, telling Middlesbrough in a post on Twitter to "dream on" over a potential move for Antonio.
