Danish international Martin Braithwaite joins Leganes from Middlesbrough

Leganes have completed the loan signing of Middlesbrough forward and Denmark international Martin Braithwaite until the end of the season.

The Madrid-based club have agreed to sign the player for the remainder of the 2018/19 campaign after agreeing personal terms this week.

A report in Marca claims Leganes had wanted to include a purchase option within the loan deal, which is to last until the end of the campaign, but that this was rejected by Boro.

Braithwaite joined the English club from Toulouse in 2017 but after four months returned to Ligue 1 as he joined Bordeaux on a loan deal.

He has featured 19 times for Middlesbrough this campaign, netting three goals.
