Middlesbrough signed three new players on deadline day last week - and today they have been handed their squad numbers.

Tony Pulis' men have made an unbeaten start to the season and haven't conceded a goal since the opening day 2-2 draw at Millwall, a run of form which has seen them sit joint-top with Leeds United on 14 points.

However, that didn't stop the Boro manager from adding to his squad before the transfer window slammed completely shut.

Sam McQueen was first through the door last Thursday after he joined on a season-long loan deal from Premier League side Southampton, and he will wear the number 14 shirt.

Another addition then followed from Wolverhampton Wanderers, with Pulis bringing in Danny Batth, who captained Wolves to the Championship title last season, to bolster his back line.

Bath wore the number six for Wolves, and will do the same with Middlebrough.
