Middlesbrough have confirmed the signing of Sam McQueen on a season-long loan from Southampton.

The 23-year-old, who is primarily a left-sided midfielder but also capable of playing further back, completed the move on Thursday morning and will be a Boro player until the end of the campaign.

McQueen has made 20 appearances in the Premier League for Saints, but his first start for the club came at the San Siro against Inter Milan in the Europa League, while he has also spent time on loan at Southend.

He made a total of eight appearances last season but was not deemed part of Mark Hughes’ plans for the current campaign, leading to his move to the Riverside where he is the sixth arrival of the summer, following Aden Flint, Paddy McNair, Andy Lonergan, Jordan Hugill and Mo Besic through the door.

Boro are also still hopeful of signing Jason Puncheon from Crystal Palace and George Saville of Millwall. But the Teessiders are expected to lose striker Martin Braithwaite.
