Championship promotion hopefuls Middlesbrough have signed David Nugent from Leicester City, according to Sky Sports.
The one time England international moves to the Riverside Stadium for an undisclosed fee after falling further out of favour at Leicester following the arrival of Japan striker Shinji Okazaki while Jamie Vardy, Andrej Kramaric and Leonardo Ulloa are also ahead of him in the pecking order.
Since signing for the Foxes four years ago Nugent racked up one hundred and eighty appearances for the club in all competitions, scoring fifty-nine goals while he was part of the squad that won the Championship in 2014.
Prior to his move to the East Midlands, the thirty year old averaged around a hundred games in spells with Portsmouth, Preston North End and Bury while he also had a loan spell with Burnley in their 2009/10 Premier League campaign.
Boro drew their opening game of the season last weekend, and are the favourites to win the Championship at 11/2.
