Middlesbrough have moved to improve their squad after their disappointing two defeats to start their campaign against Leicester in the Championship before their shock Capital One Cup defeat to lowly Accrington Stanley has also put the pressure on manager Tony Mowbray to bring in new faces. As a result, he has signed Bristol City winger Albert Adomah for a fee of £1 million.
The Bristol City winger has been the subject of continuous transfer talk this summer as City’s relegation from the second tier of English football as they look to trim the wage bill. The skilful Ghanaian winger has attracted the interest of numerous Championship clubs with Wigan being linked with the midfielder, however it seems that Middlesbrough have made their move and will be hoping everything can be finalised before their game on Saturday.
Adomah scored 17 goals in 131 appearances for Bristol City before his move to Teesside which sees him join new recruit Frazer Richardson, the right back who joined after being released from Southampton at the end of last season.
Adomah made it clear that he didn’t want to play in League One, after City’s relegation and he will now be delighted he has finalised the move to the Riverside and will be hoping to push on and improve Boro’s early season fortunes.
