Report suggests Middlesbrough have moved quickly to secure Randolph replacement

Middlesbrough have agreed a deal to sign goalkeeper Dejan Stojanovic from St Gallen, a report from TeamTalk has claimed.

The Championship side are likely to be in the market for a new goalkeeper after it was confirmed earlier on Wednesday that Darren Randolph has left the Riverside Stadium to return to former club West Ham on a permanent basis.

It had previously been reported in the Swiss press that ‘Boro have made contact with St Gallen about a move for Stojanovic, and it appears those talks are now making some form of progress.

According to the latest reports, ‘Boro have now agreed a £1million fee for the permanent signing of the 26-year-old, and confirmation of Randolph’s departure has now cleared the way for Stojanovic to make the move to England.

Having joined St Gallen from Serie A outfit Bologna in the summer of 2016, Stojanovic has made a total of 79 appearances in all competitions for his current club, who sit third in the Swiss top flight at the half-way stage of the current campaign.

The Verdict

This could be a useful signing for ‘Boro.

Following Randolph’s departure, it does feel as they need a more experienced option to call upon between the posts, although it should be noted that 21-year-old Aynsley Pears has stepped up impressively during Randolph’s injury-enforced absence over the past few months.

Even so, Stojanovic should provide a reliable option for Jonathan Woodgate’s side, and given they are said to have received £4million for Randolph, the £1million they look set to pay for Stojanovic means there should still be funds left over to invest in other areas of their squad once this move has been completed.
