Transfer News: Nigeria Captain, John Obi Mikel Joins Championship Side, Middlesbrough

Middlesbrough’s new signing, John Mikel Obi has said that he hopes to help the English Championship side get promoted to the Premier League. Mikel stated this shortly after he signed for Middlesbrough on Thursday afternoon.

The Super Eagles’ captain joined Middlesbrough on a six-month deal after he tore up his contract with Chinese Super League (CSL) side, Tianjin TEDA.

In his words;

“For me, it’s looking at the project,” the 31-year-old told the club’s official website. “I spoke to a few clubs and I also spoke to Tony [Pulis], had a good chat with him.

“He’s told me where he wants to go with it and it definitely fits with what I want to do. “The club wants to get promoted so hopefully I’m here to help in any way I can.

“It’s a family club and this is what I want. I like stability and this is why I was at Chelsea for a very long time.”

Mikel will be expected to make his debut for Middlesbrough when they take on Newport County in an FA Cup clash scheduled for Saturday, January 26.
