Middlesbrough boss Gareth Southgate is backing new recruit Marvin Emnes to make a major impact in England after beating Ajax and Feyenoord to his signature.

Boro have clinched a £3.2million deal to capture the 20-year-old Dutchman from Sparta Rotterdam in a four-year contract.

He said: "We feel we have signed an exciting young player in Marvin. Last season was his breakthrough year at Sparta Rotterdam and he ended the campaign with a flurry, scoring eight goals in his final 10 games."
