Gestede on his way to Boro

Premier League minnows Middlesbrough have reportedly reached an agreement to sign Aston Villa striker Rudy Gestede in the January transfer window.

The 28-year-old was on the radar of Newcastle United for some while but it is their Riverside counterparts, who have managed to finalize a deal for his services.

According to The Guardian, the former Blackburn Rovers star has agreed on a three-year contract with Aitor Karanka's side and the deal will go through once he undergoes a successful medical at the turn of the year.

Boro are rumoured to have settled on a £6.5m for the striker, who has netted four goals in all competitions for Aston Villa this season.

Gestede did not have a bright campaign in the Premier League last term, but he will be hoping to make amends with Middlesbrough in the second half of the season.
