Ashley Fletcher linked with Boro move

Middlesbrough have made a £6.5million bid to sign West Ham striker Ashley Fletcher

Middlesbrough have agreed "a deal in principle" to sign West Ham United striker Ashley Fletcher, although terms are now unconfirmed.

The 21-year-old only joined the Hammers last summer from Manchester United, but despite both Andy Carroll and Diafra Sakho regularly being absent through injury, Slaven Bilic rarely made use of Fletcher.

The England Under-20 worldwide made 20 appearances last season for West Ham, however only started two Premier League games.

After reports broke on Wednesday evening over a potential transfer, the club confirmed today that a deal has been reached with the Hammers.

However, following the signings of Javier Hernandez and Marko Arnautović, it is unlikely Fletcher would receive much first-team football by staying at the London Stadium.

Middlesbrough have already spent big this summer by signing up Britt Assombalonga and Martin Braithwaite, however they appear to have shown no signs of letting up in their recruitment drive with Fletcher now also on his way to the Riverside.

"The former Manchester United youth player has left West Ham's training camp in Germany and is heading to Boro for talks".

Despite his lack of action, Fletcher, who scored nine goals in 27 appearances while on loan with then League One side Barnsley in 2015-16, has been linked with a host of clubs in this transfer window, including Premier League trio Watford, Huddersfield Town and Brighton.
