Ugandan international Uche Ikpeazu has sealed a transfer from Wycombe Wanderers to Middlesbrough.
The 26-year-old completed the formalities of his move ahead of the start of pre-season training.
Boro agreed a deal with Wycombe for his services.
Middlesbrough have confirmed the arrival of the striker on their official website by stating:
“Uche Ikpeazu has become the club’s third signing of the summer after joining from Wycombe Wanderers.”
“He has signed a three-year contract.”
Neil Warnock a big fan of Uche Ikpeazu
Boro boss Neil Warnock said that he has been a big fan of Uche Ikpeazu.
“I’ve always liked Uche back to when he was at Hearts and I watched him a few times.”
“He looks raw at times but he’s so keen and dedicated wherever he plays.”
“I think the fans will really get behind him because he’s such a 100% player.
“I was really impressed in my meetings with him with his dedication and desire to do well for Middlesbrough.”
“I’m really looking forward to working with him.”
Millwall, Derby, and Nottingham Forest were all also linked with the Chairboys man but Middlesbrough have secured his services.
Last October, the then-Uganda coach Johnathan McKinstry named Ikpeazu in the provisional squad.
This was to face South Sudan in an Africa Cup of Nations qualifying match but he could not make his debut as the match was postponed.
