Huth agrees to join Middlesbrough

Robert Huth will join Middlesbrough after agreeing terms on a five-year deal which he expects to sign after the World Cup.

Chelsea and Boro agreed a fee last week and Huth announced today: “I have spoken with the manager, Gareth Southgate, and have promised him I will join Middlesbrough for the new season. The paperwork hasn’t been completed as yet but I have told [him] that I will sign the contract when it is ready.”
