Jonny Howson completes Middlesbrough move

7 July 2017

Jonny Howson has left Norwich City to join Middlesbrough for an undisclosed fee.

The midfielder moves on after five-and-a-half years with the Canaries, initially arriving from Leeds United in January 2012.

Howson made 188 appearances across all competitions for the Club, scoring 24 times.

In that time he helped City earn promotion to the Premier League during the 2014-15 season, being named as Player of the Season at the end of the following top-flight campaign.

On Howson’s departure, Sporting Director Stuart Webber told canaries.co.uk: "Jonny, via his agent, made it very clear during my first week in the job he didn’t want to be here and wanted to move back to the north.

"We spoke about a new contract but he was insistent. Jonny is a good guy who was great for this club but sometimes you have to accept it becomes about getting the best deal for the football club."

Everyone at Norwich City would like to thank Jonny for his time with the Club and wish him the very best for the future.
