Aden Flint is currently undergoing a medical at Middlesbrough after a fee was agreed with Bristol City to have him, Sky Sports confirms.
The Championship side have agreed on a fee in the region of £7m with Bristol City who previously turned down a £6m bid from Brighton for the center-back in the January transfer window.
Although Birmingham City were interested in signing the 28-year-old last August, they were later put off by Bristol City’s £10m valuation.
Despite being a defender, Flint has established himself as a good goalscorer. He has netted 36 goals in 202 league games for the Robins, including 15 in 2014/15 when they were promoted from Sky Bet League One.
Sunderland midfielder Paddy McNair has also agreed to personal terms and completed a medical with Middlesbrough ahead of a proposed move, Sky Sports News understands.
Flint was capped for a second and final time in October 2010 when he played the entire 90 minutes of England C’s 1–0 away win at the Kadriorg Stadium, Tallinn against an Estonia U-23’s in the International Challenge Trophy.
When Flint signed for Swindon Town in January 2011, he became ineligible for selection for the England C squad so was unable to make the final squad for the International Challenge Trophy
