Richardson was on the look-out for a new club after being released by Southampton earlier in the summer following three years at St Mary's.

He made 68 appearances during his time with the Saints, but featured only five times in the Premier League last season and only once after Mauricio Pochettino's appointment as manager.

Capable of playing across the defensive line, the 30-year-old will provide cover for Boro and becomes boss Tony Mowbray's third summer signing.

Mowbray has previously brought in Dean Whitehead and Jozsef Varga, and is also in talks to sign Bristol City winger Albert Adomah.

Richardson is reported to have agreed a one-year contract at The Riverside, but is not available for Saturday's Championship opener at home to Leicester City.

Meanwhile, Boro have also handed professional contracts to Norwegian defender Birger Solberg Meling and locally-born midfielder Bradley Halliday after the pair caught the eye on trial.

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
