Middlesbrough complete the signing of striker Rudy Gestede from Aston Villa for a reported fee between £6m and £7m.
Gestede becomes Aitor Karanka's first signing of the January transfer window and has penned a contract that will keep him at the Riverside until June 2020. Gestede scored four goals in 19 appearances for Aston Villa this season and is no stranger to the Premier League, having scored five goals in 24 leagues matches for Villa when they relegated last season. The 28-year-old will compete with first-choice strikers Alvaro Negredo and Cristhian Stuani for a starting role, while his arrival could result in moves away from Middlesbrough for out-of-favor strikers David Nugent and Jordan Rhodes. Gestede's Premier League return could come on January 14th when Middlesbrough travel to Vicarage Road to take on Watford. Jan 4 - 9:45 PM
