Middlesbrough’s Britt Assombalonga and Ashley Fletcher will not play any further part in the 2020/21 season according to BBC Radio Tees Sport.

Assombalonga and Fletcher has been with Boro since 2017, but they’re both set to depart in the summer, as Neil Warnock turns his attention to next year’s campaign.

Assombalonga has scored five goals in 32 appearances, with Fletcher scoring twice in his 14 appearances in all competitions this term.

Middlesbrough boss Neil Warnock has recently confirmed that both Assombalonga and Fletcher aren’t training with the club’s first-team at this stage.

“We’ve told them that they won’t be involved again now. They won’t play and they won’t train with us. I just felt it was the right time. It’s difficult for players as well – it’s not their fault altogether.”
