Boro snare striker Lita

Published Add your comment

Middlesbrough have completed the signing of former England Under-21 striker Leroy Lita on a three-year deal.

The 24-year-old has moved to the Riverside Stadium on a free transfer after being released by Championship rivals Reading in the summer.

Lita started his career with Bristol City, scoring 38 goals in 100 appearances for the Ashton Gate club.

He joined Reading for £1million in July 2005 and made 100 appearances in all competitions during his time at the Madejski Stadium, scoring 32 goals.

Lita fell out of favour towards the end of his Reading career and spent time on loan at Charlton and Norwich.
