Kei Kamara: Striker has signed a two-year contract at Middlesbrough

Kamara has joined Boro for an undisclosed fee from MLS side Sporting Kansas after spending a spell on loan at Norwich City last season.

He has agreed a two-year contract, with the option of a further year, and is relishing his move to the Championship club.

"I played a game on Saturday, got on a plane on Sunday and now I'm here on Monday so it's been a long couple of days but now I'm delighted to be here," Kamara told the club's official website.

"I've heard playing in the Championship is a lot harder than the Premier League but I'm always ready for a challenge so I'm looking forward to it. Hopefully my own style and way of playing will help the team out."

Boro boss Tony Mowbray added: "We are delighted that Kei's here. He will add to our attacking options all across the front line.

"He'll bring some added power, pace and an aerial threat to our squad."

Mowbray has also brought in Butterfield from Norwich on a three-year contract with the option of a further 12 months.

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
