Middlesbrough have announced the signing of striker Uche Ikpeazu after the club agreed a deal with Wycombe.

The 26-year-old scored six goals in 33 games in all competitions for the Chairboys in the 2020-21 campaign. The former Hearts, Cambridge and Crewe forward has put pen to paper on a three-year contract at the Riverside and becomes Boro’s third signing of the summer after bringing in Sammy Ameobi and Joe Lumley.

Boro manager Neil Warnock told the club’s website: “I’ve always liked Uche back to when he was at Hearts and I watched him a few times.

“I was really impressed in my meetings with him with his dedication and desire to do well for Middlesbrough.”

Lee Peltier was later announced as Warnock’s fourth signing of the summer.

The versatile defender has made over 500 career appearances and was promoted with Cardiff back in 2018 whilst Warnock was in charge.

The Boro boss said: “I know what Lee can do, he’s fantastic in the dressing room, and we haven’t got many senior pros in there.”
