Britt Assombalonga has moved to Turkish side Adana Demirspor, after his contract with Middlesbrough reached a conclusion at the end of June.
It was a frustrating end to his final season with the Championship side, as he made 32 appearances in total for Neil Warnock’s side, before being frozen out of the senior squad towards the end of the 2020/21 campaign.
Middlesbrough finished tenth in the second-tier standings, and they’ll be eager to make a positive start to their 2021/22 season, which is set to get underway on Sunday 8th August, when ‘Boro take on Fulham, in what is likely to be a tricky test for Warnock’s men.
How well do you know Middlesbrough's celebrity supporters?
Assombalonga took to social media to thank everyone associated with Middlesbrough for the journey he’d been on with the club.
To everyone at Middlesbrough football Club, I want to thank you all for the past 4 years!
It’s been a good journey & came across so many good people! Coaches, fans & especially the players what a changing room🤣❤️
All the best for the future 👊🏽 #UTB
