Middlesbrough’s Tony Mowbray sells Leroy Lita to Swansea City

IT WILL be a case of one in and one out at the Riverside today.

Middlesbrough are bringing in keeper Carl Ikeme on loan move from Wolves, while Leroy Lita will finally complete the £1.75 million transfer to Premier League new boys Swansea.

Tony Mowbray is likely to keep Ikeme until first-choice stopper Jason Steele is fit to return.

Steele suffered a broken scaphoid in training last month, with Danny Coyne and Connor Ripley then sharing the gloves on the pre-season tour of Slovenia and Croatia and then in the friendly defeats at Darlington and Carlisle.

IKeme made an encouraging debut in Friday’s friendly against PSV Eindhoven.

And Mowbray was pleased with the start he made in front of the bumper crowd.

“I think he did fine on Friday, it was a difficult game,” said Mowbray.
