Middlesbrough have completed the signing of Gaston Ramirez on a permanent deal

Middlesbrough, England – Uruguay international midfielder Gaston Ramirez will join Middlesbrough on a three-year deal.

The 25-year-old spent the second half of last season on loan to Middlesbrough from Southampton, scoring seven times in 18 Championship appearances to help secure automatic promotion to the Premier League.

Southampton paid Bologna 14.2 million euros for Ramirez four years ago, but he started just 23 Premier League games for the club and spent the 2014/15 season on loan at Hull.

Boro manager Aitor Karanka has now brought in seven players ahead of the new season, which begins with a home game against Stoke on August 13.
