Yeates Set To Secure Boro Move
Gareth Southgate is set to make Mark Yeates his first signing of the Summer.
Yeates is set to sign for Middlesbrough FC after agreeing a fee with Colchester United.
As expected, Yeates was at Rockcliffe Park today discussing personal terms.
Gareth Southgate told MFC, "I want players who have played in the Championship and who have a hunger to play in the Premier League."
"We want a mixture of hunger, energy and quality."

We feel we are close to being able to do some sort of a deal. Hopefully something might happen over the next few days.
