Middlesbrough have signed Valencia striker Alvaro Negredo, as confirmed by their official club website.

The 30-year-old then moved to Valencia but struggled for form at the Mestalla, netting just ten goals in 55 appearances during the club’s last two La Liga campaigns.

He’s been linked with a shock move to Middlesbrough frequently in recent weeks and the newly-promoted Premier League side have finally got their man, confirming Negredo’s arrival via their official website.

Mirror Football’s Ed Malyon has added some more detail to the story, claiming the 6 foot 2 striker has signed for Boro on a season-long loan and will take home more than £100k per-week.

Aitor Karanka’s side have also signed three-time Champions League winner Victor Valdes, former Ajax forward Viktor Fischer, midfielder Marten de Roon and defender Bernardo Espinosa this summer.
