Middlesbrough have completed the signing of forward Martin Braithwaite from Toulouse.
We understand the fee to be £9m and the 26-year-old has signed a four-year deal after he underwent a medical at the club's training ground on Thursday.
The Denmark striker, who has 16 international caps and can also play as a winger, is Boro manager Garry Monk's third summer signing.
Braithwaite, who scored 11 Ligue 1 goals for Toulouse last season, will fly out to Portugal on Friday to meet up with his new team-mates at their pre-season training camp.
"Garry Monk has completed his third signing of the summer after Martin Braithwaite finalised his transfer from Toulouse," a statement released on Middlesbrough's official website said.
"Boro agreed a deal with the French side to capture the services of the highly-rated Braithwaite.
"The player completed his medical at Rockliffe on Thursday and was shown around the training ground ahead of his proposed four-year deal to Teesside.
"The Danish international put pen to paper on a four-year deal and follows Jonny Howson and Cyrus Christie into Boro, who joined last week from Norwich City and Derby County respectively."
Recently relegated from the Premier League, Middlesbrough kick-off their 2017-18 Championship campaign away at Wolves on August 5.
