Many Middlesbrough fans have taken to Twitter to react to the news that the club are in advanced talks to sign Heerenveen winger Mitchell Van Bergen.
The two clubs are said to be closing in on reaching an agreement for the 21-year-old to move to the Riverside Stadium after Boro had a second bid accepted after their opening bid was turned down.
Van Bergen is one of the most highly rated young Dutch players in the Eredivisie and bringing him to the North East would surely be viewed as a major coup by Neil Warnock and his staff.
Naturally the news of this transfer update didn’t take long to reach the Middlesbrough faithful, with many taking to social media to react to the development.
