The former Sunderland and Stoke midfielder has been in talks with Boro for a number of weeks, following his release from the Britannia Stadium.

Whitehead has now penned a two-year deal with Boro to become their second signing of the summer following on from the capture of Jozsef Varga.

The 31-year-old makes a return to the North East having spent five years with Sunderland, prior to his move to Stoke.

"This is a fresh start for me and I'm looking forward to it," he told Boro+.

"I had five or six options, but having spoken to the manager (Tony Mowbray) early in the summer I had a good feel for him and this place.

"I know the way he likes to play and I know there are a lot of good players here.

"There is a lot of talent here and I think the manager and chairman have this cub heading the right way again. I hope I can help them achieve what they deserve."

England call-up for Clyne

T

he 'where does it end' argument is an absurd one and completely misses the point of the Rooney Rule, which applies to all minorities. It doesn't force any team to appoint anyone, it merely requires them to interview at least one minority candidate.
