Liam Roberts / Free / Northampton
The goalkeeper was Northampton's player of the year in League Two last season but is likely to start his Championship career as an understudy. Solid addition to the squad. 3/5
Kamil Conteh / Free / Watford
The young midfielder never broke into the Watford first team but is already a full Sierra Leone international and impressed as a triallist at Boro. 3/5
Darragh Lenihan / Free / Blackburn
A rock at the back for previous club Blackburn, Chris Wilder hopes the Republic of Ireland centre-half will address a lack of leadership in the dressing room. 4/5
Ryan Giles / Loan / Wolves
Registered ten assists across two loan spells in the second tier last season. Definite upgrade in the left wing back position and looks a very solid addition. 4/5
Zach Steffen / Loan / Manchester City
The USA international is highly rated by Manchester City and his shot stopping and agility should mean he's a huge upgrade to Boro's goalkeeping contingent. 4/5
Tommy Smith / Free / Stoke
Smith is unlikely to usurp Isiah Jones as Boro's first-choice right wing-back but will provide valuable depth and experience to a relatively young squad. 3/5
Marcus Forss / Undisclosed / Brentford
A young forward who doesn't have an outstanding goalscoring record, with eight league goals in 54 appearances for Brentford. However the Finn could improve in more these favourable circumstances. 3/5
Undisclosed / Swansea
Loan / Reading
Free / Rotherham
Loan / Boca Juniors
£12.5m / Tottenham
Loan / Rotherham
Loan / Aberdeen
£12m / Bournemouth
Matt Crooks had the worst disciplinary record in the Championship last season with 16 yellows and one red card.
Only four Championship players had more shots from outside the box last season than Marcus Tavernier's 49, demonstrating the influential midfielder is not afraid to try his luck from range.
No team won more home Championship games than Middlesbrough's 14 and another strong showing at the Riverside should put Boro in the promotion picture.
Loanees Aaron Connolly and Folarin Balogun contributed just five Championship goals last term and Boro will be hoping to improve their attacking options in the transfer market.
Middlesbrough were disappointed to finish outside of the playoffs last season, but they progressed after Chris Wilder's November appointment and continued improvement can pave the way for a top-six finish in 2022-23. Wilder will be looking for a further uptick in standards and may target better use of the loan market after Folarin Balogun and Aaron Connolly struggled to make an impact last term.
Middlesbrough to finish in top six
