Middlesbrough have finally completed the signing of Brazilian striker Afonso Alves for an undisclosed club-record fee from Dutch side Heerenveen.

Alves, who turned 27 on Wednesday, has signed a four-and-a-half-year deal with the Teesside club after passing a medical and agreeing personal terms earlier this week.

He still requires international clearance from the Dutch football federation (KNVB) before he can make his debut.
