Middlesbrough manager Tony Mowbray is set to seal a double deal for the club over the next few days.
Bristol City’s powerful winger Albert Adomah is pencilled in to undergo a medical ahead of a £1m move to the Riverside. All formalties should be completed within 24 hours, barring any last-minute hitches.
Meanwhile, Mowbray today offered to take Scottish forward Ross McCormack from Leeds United in a bid to bolster his options up front, with last season’s top scorer Scott McDonald now gone.
McCormack managed just seven goals last season, but hit eighteen the year before. The 26-year-old also struck against Brighton on the opening day of the new Championship campaign to get off the mark for his current side.
Middlesbrough desperately need attacking reinforcements after conceding nine goals more than they scored last time around. McCormack and Adomah represent proven quality at Championship level and appear ideal fits for the attractive style of play encouraged by Boro boss Mowbray.
