Middlesbrough have confirmed the signing of Slovenian international striker Andraz Sporar on a season-long loan deal.

The 27-year-old has temporarily joined Neil Warnock’s side from Portuguese Premier League champions Sporting Lisbon.

Sporar brings a very impressive goalscoring record to the Riverside, having netted 141 times in just over 300 senior appearances.

Emerging through the academy system at Slovenian club Interblock, Sporar made his competitive debut in 2012, before joining Olimpija Ljubljana at the end of the 2011/12 campaign.

After three prolific years in the capital, Sporar swapped his homeland for Switzerland, signing for Basel in 2016.

However, just a single goal from 19 appearances followed, before he headed back for Slovenia, but this time he joined Slovan Bratislava, where he netted 60 times in 78 appearances.
