Shay Given to join Middlesbrough?

Middlesbrough are closing in on the signing of veteran goalkeeper Shay Given from Aston Villa, according to a report.

Middlesbrough are reportedly close to signing Aston Villa goalkeeper Shay Given.

It is thought that Villa boss Tim Sherwood is prepared to let the 39-year-old leave on a free transfer.

The Republic of Ireland international made 16 appearances for Boro during a three-month loan stint at the Riverside Stadium in the 2013-14 season.

According to The Telegraph, Given is poised to join the Championship outfit on a permanent basis.

Given signed for Villa for £3.5m from Manchester City in 2011.
