Joe Hart’s loan move to West Ham United was part of a hectic week for the Hammers, as they also announced the permanent acquisition of Javier Hernandez. Indeed it is exciting times for fans, but not so much for Darren Randolph.

The Republic of Ireland shot-stopper finally muscled his way past Adrian in the pecking order at the London Stadium, but Hart’s arrival cast doubt over his future at the club.

This evening, Middlesbrough have announced that they have agreed a deal to bring the Bray-native to the Riverside Stadium, as they plot a route back to the Premier League.

“The club have agreed a deal in principle with West Ham United to sign goalkeeper Darren Randolph, subject to a medical and personal terms.”

He will join Ireland team-mate Cyrus Christie at Boro. The club are joint-favourites for the Championship this season along with Aston Villa, so Randolph will be eager to make a swift return to the top flight.

The 30-year-old has been the number-one choice in Martin O’Neill’s Ireland set-up since he was sprung from the bench during the famous 1-0 victory over Germany in 2015.
