Championship side Middlesbrough confirm that Dutch midfielder Marten de Roon has rejoined Italian club Atalanta BC after one season in England.

Middlesbrough have confirmed the departure of midfielder Marten de Roon to Atalanta BC.

The 26-year-old joined Boro from the Italian side last summer in a £12m move, but could not prevent their relegation back to the Championship after one season in the Premier League.

In a statement on the official club website, the Teessiders wrote: "The move is a permanent one, with Atalanta re-signing the player they sold to us a year ago. Everyone at MFC wishes Marten all the best for the future."

Boro also confirmed that the fee paid by Atalanta is undisclosed due to a privacy clause in the contract, but Sky Sports News believes that it is in the region of £13m.

De Roon, who made his senior debut for the Netherlands last year, played 33 times last season for Boro in the top flight, scoring four goals.
