Middlesbrough have added two-time Championship promotion winner Neeskens Kebano to their squad – subject to EFL clearance.

The 28-year-old will arrive on a season-long loan deal from Fulham and has been part of the Cottagers’ sides which won promotion to the Premier League in 2018 and 2020.

Kebano becomes Boro’s fifth signing of the January transfer window, following goalkeeper Jordan Archer, Yannick Bolasie, Darnell Fisher, and Nathaniel Mendez-Laing.

The midfielder has predominantly played in a central attacking role but has operated in multiple positions, including on the flanks.

Boro boss Neil Warnock told the club’s website: “It’s a deal I didn’t think would happen. We’ve been after Neeskens for a few weeks now and we’ve managed to get it over the line which is a real plus for us.

“Mendez-Laing and Yannick are both lacking match fitness whereas Neeskens has been involved and playing. He’s another string to our bow and we’re looking forward to him joining us.”
