Speaking to Boro’s official website, head coach Jonathan Woodgate said: “Ravel is a terrific signing for us. He is a real quality player with plenty of experience, and will give us something different to what we have.

“He has a desire to do well and succeed, and that attitude fits in with in well with our ethos here. I met him this week, we had a really good talk, and I think he we will be really good addition to our squad.”
