Middlesbrough complete move for Dutch midfielder
Marten De Roon has completed a transfer move to newly promoted Middlesbrough. It is understood that Boro have spent a 16 million euro fee to land the Atalanta defensive midfielder.
The move for De Roon is somewhat of a surprise as Boro had been very quiet on a potential move for the 25-year-old. De Roon is very highly rated by many in Italy and had been expected to eventually complete a move to Inter Milan, after the San Siro side expressed interest in the holding midfielder.
De Roon is sure to be the first of many signings at the promoted Premier League side.
