Negredo to Middlesbrough imminent?

Alvaro Negredo will not travel with Valencia to Netherlands for their preseason tour after “completing” his season-long loan to Middlesbrough.

According to AS, Negredo is headed for England to undergo his medical with Middlesbrough, before joining up with Aitor Karanka’s side at their Marbella training camp.

The move marks the end of a disappointing two-year spell back in Spain for the striker, who scored just 10 La Liga goals in that time, despite Los Che paying Manchester City €27m to make his loan deal permanent last summer.

The Premier League new boys, meanwhile, will absorb all of the former Sevilla hitman’s €6m salary for the 2016-17 campaign.
