Middlesbrough on the verge of securing Rotherham United forward signing
Middlesbrough have been linked with Rotherham United striker Michael Smith throughout the transfer window, however, it now seems Boro have beaten their competition in the race for the 29-year-old.
For a striker who scored 10 goals and provided three assists in 44 Championship matches last season, Smith has been attracting interest from several Championship clubs, including Middlesbrough and Bristol City.
According to reports, Neil Warnock wants to sign him, but had been pegged back by his transfer fee as he enters into the last 12 months of his contract with the Millers.
However, it appears that Warnock is confident in signing him and his relationship with Rotherham United boss Paul Warne will give him the edge to complete the deal.
Middlesbrough will be hoping to wrap up the signing as soon as possible as they prepare for the Championship season which kicks off on Saturday August 7th.
