Ashley Fletcher has completed his £6.5m move from West Ham to Middlesbrough.
The striker has signed a four-year contract and becomes Boro's sixth senior permanent signing of the summer as the club rebuilds under Garry Monk ahead of their return to the Championship.
Boro have now spent more than £30m on forward reinforcements following deals for Britt Assombalonga and Martin Braithwaite, and Fletcher arrives after just one season at West Ham.
The 21-year-old joined the Hammers last summer at the end of his Manchester United contract but scored just one goal, in a League Cup defeat at Old Trafford.
His sale was sanctioned after West Ham brought in Marko Arnautovic and Javier Hernandez for a combined £41m.
