From ESPN - July 17, 2017

Middlesbrough have announced a club-record deal to sign Britt Assombalonga from Nottingham Forest.

The 24-year-old striker has signed for Garry Monk's Championship side despite an injury-hit three years at the City Ground.

Reports said the forward would cost Boro about 15 million. The club did not confirm the fee, but did say it was the highest in club history.

Assombalonga is a proven goalscorer in the Championship, having netted 30 times in 47 league starts since signing for 5.5 million in 2014.

However, persistent injuries have held back his progress, with a serious knee injury ruling him out for much of the 2015-16 season, but he signed a new five-year deal last summer after proving his fitness.
