IRELAND INTERNATIONAL DARREN Randolph is set to leave Championship strugglers Middlesbrough in a £4 million deal.

The Bray native is expected to return to former club West Ham, according to a report in The Guardian.

The 32-year-old made the move in the other direction in a £5 million deal in 2017, having seen his first-team opportunities limited at the Premier League club.

He has made over 100 appearances in his time at Boro and established himself as one of the best goalkeepers in the Championship, featuring in the league’s PFA Team of the Year last season.

Randolph, who is on the verge of returning from a thigh injury that has kept him out of action of late, is set to battle Lukasz Fabianski for the Hammers’ number one jersey, with summer recruit Roberto having fallen out of favour at the club.

The experienced goalkeeper is almost certain to start in Ireland’s crucial Euro 2020 play-off against Slovakia in Bratislava on 26 March.
