Transfer deadline day is renowned for its late drama and last-gasp deals.
For Middlesbrough supporters it was certainly a day that didn’t disappoint on any level.
Deals had already been completed for Jordan Archer, Yannick Bolasie and Darnell Fisher with the rumour mill started turning that a move for further attacking reinforcements could be on the cards.
That’s why the announcement of a deal for Nathaniel Mendez-Laing was met with such optimism from supporters.
The winger arrived on a free contract on a deal until the end of the season and left fans feeling incredibly excited about the signing and what he could offer under previous boss Neil Warnock.
Here’s a look at what some supporters had to say about the arrival.
Jheeeeze Welcome!! 😎
