Middlesbrough are preparing to sign Nigerian striker Batholomew Ogbeche to help the club improve their miserable goal tally of late, according to the Northern Echo.

Tony Mowbray's side netted their first home league goal since August against Millwall on Saturday, with the likes of Marvin Emnes and Scott McDonald going through a dry patch in-front of goal.

And the boss is looking to Ogbeche to help solve Boro's goalscoring crisis, which is threatening to derail their impressive start to the season.


Ogbeche is a free agent after his release from Kavala this summer.

If a deal can be completed in time, the 26-year-old could be involved in Middlesbrough's trip to Nottingham Forest.

McDonald has failed to find the net for Middlesbrough since the August victory over Barnsley, while Emnes last struck in the club's last win against Crystal Palace last month.

Middlesbrough boss Mowbray said: on McDonald's goal drought: "He's a bit frustrated but I think he knows that his work and effort is appreciated. He's the sort of boy who can get uptight about it, but the message is to relax."
