The Football League Paper - - CHRIS DUNLAVY -

MID­DLES­BROUGH boss Ai­tor Karanka be­lieves he has got the “right player at the right price” af­ter com­plet­ing the £4m sign­ing of David Nu­gent from Le­ices­ter.

The 30-year-old has signed a three-year con­tract and will be charged with at­tempt­ing to fire Boro to the Premier League along­side Kike and Chris­tian Stu­ani.

Boro had been keen to boost their for­ward op­tions af­ter Pa­trick Bam­ford and Jelle Vossen both de­parted in the sum­mer. But with their at­tempts to land £14m-rated Black­burn hitman Jor­dan Rhodes stalling, Boro have swooped for Nu­gent.

Ex­pe­ri­ence: David Nu­gent

“Ev­ery­one knows what a good player he is,” said Karanka. “We have worked re­ally hard to bring David to the club and ev­ery­one can see that we have not had to spend a crazy amount of money to bring him here. It’s im­por­tant to get the right play­ers at the right price.”
