Nottingham Forest striker Britt Assombalonga has completed his £14 million move to The Reds’ Sky Bet Championship rivals Middlesbrough after passing a medical on Teesside.

The 24-year-old Zaire born hotshot’s move comes as no real surprise with the player having been strongly linked with Boro in recent days.

Assombalonga netted 30 goals in 69 appearances for Forest and his goalscoring talent could be missed at The City Ground. After hearing news that the transfer had been completed, Forest fans took to Twitter to give their views on the deal.

Forest signed Assombalonga for a near £6 million transfer fee from Peterborough United in August 2014 after the player had netted 33 goals in 58 appearances for The Posh.
