Here is the latest from today’s Championship transfer news.
Middlesbrough face their first away trip of the new season this weekend as they travel to QPR.
Chris Wilder’s side will be eager to pick up their first win of the campaign following their opening day draw with West Brom, while their opponents are still on the hunt for their first point.
Boro have a particularly poor record against QPR and have failed to beat them since a 2-0 win at the Riverside Stadium in 2019 (D3 L3).
Their last trip to Loftus Road came in February, where they played out an entertaining 2-2 draw.
After finding themselves 2-1 down only a minute into the second half, a strike of luck gifted them a point when ex-Boro winger Albert Adomah converted the ball into his own net.
