Former Hearts striker Uche Ikpeazu has completed a move to English Championship club Middlesbrough in a deal worth £1 million.
Ikpeazu leaves Wycombe Wanderers for £750,000, the transfer potentially rising to £1 million with add-ons. The striker left Hearts for Wycombe last summer and will remain at Championship level this season, despite his former club’s relegation to League One.
Wycombe’s leading scorer last season, Ikpeazu scored 10 goals in 55 appearances over two years at Hearts. He now pens a three-year deal with Neil Warnock’s team.
Warnock said: “I’ve always liked Uche back to when he was at Hearts and I watched him a few times. He looks raw at times but he’s so keen and dedicated wherever he plays and I think the fans will really get behind him because he’s such a 100% player.
“I was really impressed in my meetings with him with his dedication and desire to do well for Middlesbrough. I’m really looking forward to working with him.”
