Middlesbrough goalkeeper Brad Jones has signed a new three-and-a-half year contract which will keep him at the Riverside until at least 2012. The Australian, 26, joined Boro as a trainee and is currently an understudy to Ross Turnbull, whose contract expires at the end of the season. Middlesbrough manager Gareth Southgate told the club's website: "There's little to choose between our keepers. "Brad feels the challenge here is one he's prepared to take on." Regarding Turnbull's contract, Southgate added: "Ross is still in negotiations and we hope to complete those shortly."
