Adam Forshaw signs for Middlesbrough.
Former Brentford midfielder Adam Forshaw has signed for Middlesbrough for £2.5 million.
And Forshaw’s first game for Boro could be potentially the trip to Griffin Park this Saturday against his former team-mates.
Forshaw left Brentford in the summer of 2014 after months of rumours, signing for Wigan for a fee of £3.6 million.
After winning the Division 1 Player of the Year award whilst at Brentford, much was expected of Forshaw when he moved North.
However, Wigan have been in turmoil this season and when Uwe Rosler was sacked after 10 months in charge, he was never really given the chance.
