Middlesbrough FC agree on sale of midfield star Marten De Roon

Middlesbrough FC agree on sale of midfield star Marten De Roon

"It's going to be an exciting season, there are a lot of games in the Championship", the midfielder told Middlesbrough's website.

Despite their season opener defeat to Wolves, Middlesbrough will look to perform impressively this term and return back to the Premier League as soon as possible.

"I already know what the Championship is about".

The 22-year-old recently spent a loan spell with Dutch side SBV Vitesse, scoring 20 goals in 73 matches, and will play in the Championship again after appearing in the league for Sheffield Wednesday back in 2014-15.

"They have played an incredible season, the best ever, and what they have achieved last season was insane". After collecting two seasons worth of senior experience, it was expected that Baker would continue his progress back at Chelsea and hopefully have a chance to impress with the first-team, especially given the lack of numbers in midfield at the club.

If Baker was to move to Boro he would be another notable addition for Garry Monk's side.

Middlesbrough have accepted a bid of around £13m bid from Atalanta for midfielder Marten De Roon, according to Sky sources.

Darren Randolph, Ashley Fletcher, Martin Braithwaite, Cyrus Christie and Jonny Howson have also joined the Teessiders this summer.
