Middlesbrough target Afonso Alves was undergoing a medical on Tuesday evening as the Teessiders attempted to push through a club record signing.

The 26-year-old Heerenveen striker is understood to have arrived on Teesside as the two clubs worked to finalise a move which will cost Boro significantly more than the £8.15million they paid Empoli for Massimo Maccarone during the summer of 2002.

However, while agreement is close, there are still details to thrash out before the Brazilian´s work permit appeal is heard on Wednesday.
