Middlesbrough have accepted a bid of around £13m bid from Atalanta for midfielder Marten De Roon, according to Sky sources.
The Dutch player is set for a medical in Italy today.
The 26-year-old joined Middlesbrough for £12m from the Italian side but now is on the verge of returning to Atalanta.
De Roon made 33 appearances last season in the Premier League, scoring four goals as they were relegated.
De Roon made his senior debut for the Netherlands last year and has also played for Sparta Rotterdam.
Middlesbrough have spent heavily during the summer transfer window with £15m striker Britt Assombalonga heading a big list of new players.
The others include Darren Randolph, Ashley Fletcher, Martin Braithwaite, Cyrus Christie and Jonny Howson.
