If the rumour mill is to be believed today, it appears Aden Flint will have left Ashton Gate for the last time as he is reportedly undergoing a medical with Middlesbrough.

Speculation about the future of the 28-year-old centre-half has been ongoing for a while and it’s long been believed that Tony Pulis had an interest in him. It seems his chase is now successful with Sky Sports reporting today that he’s in Middlesbrough completing his medical before personal terms are discussed and agreed upon.

They say their ‘sources’ suggest that the deal is in the region of £7million, which is a slight uplift on the reported £6million offer we rejected from Brighton back in the January transfer window, so certainly good business from our end for a man we only paid £300,000 for back in 2013 when he made the switch from Swindon Town.

243 starting appearances later, an additional three showings from the bench and he would depart with 38 goals contributed from the heart of defence in the years since.

Good business or not, fans seem less than impressed.
