The news comes after defender Jack Robinson 19, signed a new two-year deal with the club.

Robinson told the Boro’s website: “I've been here since I was an Under-12, so to add to that is a great feeling.

"Ever since I was a kid I've been going to the games, I've had season tickets, and watching the likes of Ben Gibson - that's what I aspire to and where I want to be.

"It's been a great experience training with the senior players and to make my debut even for a few minutes was a dream come true.”
