Middlesbrough have confirmed the signings of 20-year-old Amadou Sylla and 17-year-old Jakub Sinior on their club’s official website.
Frenchman Sylla joins as a free agent after a stint with Stade Reims in France whilst Pole Sinior joins from Legia U19s team.
Both players will be joining the club’s academy to further their development.
Sylla, who plays as an attacking midfielder, has featured against his new team before in the UEFA Youth League, a tie in which he scored once and provided two assists.
Sinior, whose primary position is as a centre back, only moved to Legia’s U19 squad last month and had no time to make an appearance for them before his move to Middlesbrough.
It’s always good to see teams preparing for the future and these two signings show exactly that.
Sylla’s two assists and a goal against Middlesbrough’s U19s would have likely been the reason the player was on their radar in the first place.
Not enough is known about Jakub Sinior but it is unlikely the club would have brought the player in if they didn’t think he possessed the qualities necessary to succeed at the Riverside.
Don’t expect to see either player featuring for the first team for a few years but when they do, they could make a big impact on the side.
