Arsenal Agrees upon Middlesbrough’s Bid for Justin Hoyte

It seems to be a matter of time Middlesbrough signs Arsenal right back Justin Hoyte for the next season after the two clubs reportedly being agreed upon a transfer fee that might be less than US$11.3 million, the amount Middlesbrough received by selling Luke Young to Aston Villa recently. Earlier Middlesbrough chairman Steve Gibson indicated that the club had already got the replacement for Luke Young and now it is clear that Justin Hoyte is going to be the replacement of Young.

Keith Lamb, chief executive of Middlesbrough, confirmed that the club had received the permission from Arsenal to talk to Justin Hoyte. He also added that the club was going to talk to Hoyte within 24 to 48 hours. Hoyte did not have a good time at Arsenal as the English defender won only 68 appearances in five years. The 23-year-old has not been regular in the starting line up of Arsenal and the situation became tougher upon the arrival of Bacary Sagna last year. Now, let us see if Justin Hoyte accepts the deal positively and wants to leave Arsenal, the club where he has been since he was 11.
