Middlesbrough are understood to be closing in on a £3.8m deal for Ajax winger Viktor Fischer.

It's believed the 21-year-old was allowed to leave an international training camp with Denmark and is expected on Teesside for talks over a possible summer switch to the Riverside.

If the deal goes through, Fischer would be Aitor Karanka's first signing since the club were promoted back to the Premier League.
