Neil Taylor has signed a new deal that will keep him at Middlesbrough for the rest of the season.

The experienced full-back joined Boro on a short-term contract towards at the Riverside Stadium in November and whilst he has only played two games, Taylor helped Boro to two wins and two clean sheets.
With his squad short in defensive areas, Chris Wilder was always going to try and keep the player but things were complicated by rival Championship interest.
However, it was announced today that the 32-year-old had agreed fresh terms with the Teesside outfit that will see him remain as part of Wilder’s squad as they look to push for promotion.
Have each of these 24 ex-Middlesbrough academy players ever played in the Premier League?
As you would expect, this news went down well with the Middlesbrough support who recognise that the former Aston Villa man could play an important role for the remainder of the campaign both on and off the pitch.
Here we look at some of the reaction from Twitter…
Great bit of business 👍

Well deserved! Was put through a trial by fire when he first arrived and put in some excellent shifts
