Zach Hemming leaves Middlesbrough on loan to Scottish club

Middlesbrough are in the transfer window to sign new players and to also allow some to leave the club. In their quest to ensure some of their youngsters acquire first-team experience, they've confirmed a loan move for one of their young goalkeepers.

Boro have confirmed the departure of goalkeeper Zach Hemming on loan to Scottish club Kilmarnock ahead of next season.

The 21-year-old, who has been at the Riverside Stadium since Under-13 level, spent the majority of last season with Boro's Under-23s.

He previously had loan spells at Blyth Spartans, Darlington, and Hartlepool United.

He will now join a Kilmarnock, who were relegated at the end of the Scottish Premiership last season.

The move to the Scottish side will offer Hemming more regular playing time and first-team experience to aid his development ahead of a possible future at Boro.
