Chuba Akpom is in advanced talks to leave Middlesbrough and join former club PAOK, according to Gazzetta.

Akpom arrived at the Riverside last summer for a fee of around £2.75million, having impressed over in the Greek Super League.

But the striker struggled to make an impact last season, making only 20 starts in the Championship and scoring only five goals in a total of 39 outings.
