Middlesbrough striker Kris Boyd is looking forward to a 'huge challenge' after confirming he is set to join Turkish side Eskisehirspor.
Skysports.com revealed on Wednesday that the Scotland international was discussing a move after just one season at The Riverside.
Boyd joined Boro on a free transfer from Rangers 12 months ago and scored six goals in 27 Championship appearances for the club.
He also netted six goals during a loan spell at Nottingham Forest and is now poised to complete a move to Turkey.
A three-year deal is reportedly on the table for the 27-year-old and Eskisehirspor are set to pay Boro a nominal fee.
"This is a huge challenge," Boyd told the Daily Record.
"Eskisehirspor are ambitious and I want to help them achieve their goals. I can't wait to get started."
