A Boro statement said: "Garry Monk has completed his third signing of the summer after Martin Braithwaite finalised his transfer from Toulouse.

"Boro agreed a deal with the French side to capture the services of the highly-rated Braithwaite.

"Braithwaite completed his medical at Rockliffe on Thursday and was shown around the training ground ahead of his proposed four-year deal to Teesside."
