IRELAND INTERNATIONAL CYRUS Christie was among the players to make moves late on during last night’s transfer deadline day.
The right-back, who only joined Middlesbrough from Derby in the summer, signed for Championship rivals Fulham.
The 25-year-old signs for the side, who are currently sixth in the table, for an undisclosed fee, penning a three-and-a-half-year contract, with the option of a further year.
He made 26 apperances for Boro, after signing for Tony Pulis’ side last year for £2.5 million.
Newcastle United striker Aleksandar Mitrovic also joined Fulham on loan until the end of the season in the dying stages of last night’s window.
“Aleksandar is a talented player who has already amassed an impressive record at the highest levels of the game,” director of football, Tony Khan, told the club’s website.
“Cyrus is a fantastic young player who brings both an international pedigree and a wealth of Championship experience with him.”
