Nottingham Forest FC can announce that the transfer of Britt Assombalonga to Middlesbrough FC is complete.
A spokesperson for Nottingham Forest FC said:
"Middlesbrough FC outbid various other clubs to sign Britt Assombalonga. As a club we felt that since the fee agreed met the buyout clause in his contract and he wanted to move it would be wrong to stand in his way."
Britt Assombalonga said: "I would like to thank Nottingham Forest for all their help and support especially whilst I was injured. They have shown full commitment to me to continue but I felt that this was too good an opportunity for me to pass up at this stage of my career."
