Martin Braithwaite passes Boro medical

Middlesbrough are on the verge of signing Martin Braithwaite from Toulouse.

The striker passed his medical on Thursday and is set join for a fee of just under £9 million.

He will be Garry Monk’s third summer signing, following the arrival of Jonny Howson and Cyrus Christie.

Braithwaite scored 11 Ligue 1 goals last term and has attracted interest from several Premier League clubs including West Ham, Bournemouth and Brighton.

“I know some will be surprised by this choice - and he did have several offers from a couple of top-10 clubs in both Germany and England, including a big offer at the last minute - but none have offered a complete package like Middlesbrough” said a source close to Braithwaite.

“Martin is impressed by the team’s commitment to an immediate Premier League return, commitment to excellence and the overall elite set-up of the club.”

"Everyone from the president down to the coach went above and beyond to sign him. He expects to not only get back up right away, but to be in the top half of the Premier League in the next three years."
