Middlesbrough agree Nsue deal

Middlesbrough have agreed a deal to sign Emilio Nsue from Real Mallorca on a three-year contract, subject to international clearance.

The 24-year-old, a former Spain U21 international, will become the club's fourth signing of the summer.

Nsue, who can operate anywhere on the right, has played almost 200 games for Mallorca after beginning his career in the club's B team.

Middlesborough Head Coach Aitor Karanka told the club's official website: "He is a versatile player who I have known for five years. He is a good lad with a good mentality and approach to the game.

"I know him personally and know the type of person he is, and that is important. And as a player he can play in different positions and I am delighted we have agreed a deal to sign him."

Nsue follows Kike, Tomas Mejias and James Husband to the Riverside this summer.
