Middlesbrough boss Tony Pulis made 13 signings during his time on Teesside.

But how did Pulis fare in the transfer market during his 18-month spell on Teesside? We've taken a closer look at how Pulis' 13 signings fared during their time at Boro. Scroll down and flick through our gallery to find out:

The promising winger played just 49 minutes for the Teessiders after signing on loan from Manchester City in January 2018. The 22-year-old went on to become a permanent fixture at Leeds United this season.
Boro initially signed Besic on loan just a month after Pulis took charge. The Bosnian made a significant impact in midfield and played a key part as the Teessiders reached the play-offs.

The experienced defender was often brought on towards the end of games when Boro were looking to shut up shop. Overall he played just nine games and made just one start during his four-month spell.
Much was expected of the giant centre-half who scored eight league goals and impressed for Bristol City in the 2017/18 season. Flint didn't quite hit the same heights at Boro but was still a regular at the back.
A player who has rarely played in his natural position this season, filling in at the back rather than playing in midfield. McNair made just 16 league appearances this term despite Boro's lack of creativity in the engine room.
Hugill netted six league goals in 37 league appearances after signing for Boro from West Ham on a season-long loan. Despite his local links Hugill struggled to keep his first-team spot at the Riverside.
The Southampton defender briefly provided capable cover at full-back before his loan spell was cut short following a cruciate knee injury.
The versatile midfielder improved as the season went on but still struggled during his first season on Teesside. It can not have helped when he was regularly being moved from one position to another.
Lonergan made just two senior appearances for Boro in the Carabao Cup, conceding four goals in total against Notts County and Rochdale. He did save two penalties in the shootout against County though.
Boro re-signed Besic on a season-long loan at the start of the 2018/19 season, yet the Bosnian struggled to replicate his impressive form. The Bosnian did improve in the latter stages before returning to Everton.
Batth had to be patient for his chance at Boro but forced his way into the side with a couple of solid displays. His departure in January was problematic as the Teessiders suffered injuries at the back.
The winger was signed to add some much-needed pace to the Boro attack but made just five appearances in all competitions. Van La Parra then returned to Huddersfield following an injury.
The former Chelsea midfielder stepped straight into the side after joining Boro in January. Mikel's quality on the ball and defensive nous stood out despite the side's failure to make the play-offs.
