COLCHESTER United winger Mark Yeates today completed his move to Championship side Middlesborough.

The 24-year-old Dubliner told the Boro website, www.mfc.co.uk: "This is massive for me. There was interest from other clubs, but there was only one thing on my mind once my agent told me Middlesbrough had been in touch.

"This club belongs in the Premier League, the fans deserve to be there and I can't wait to play in front of them.

"It's a Premier club in my mind - all you have to do is look around the facilities, the training ground, the stadium, everything is spot-on."
