First signing: Malaury Martin has joined Mowbray's Boro

Middlesbrough boss Tony Mowbray has made his first summer signing after Frenchman Malaury Martin agreed a one-year deal.

The 22-year-old midfielder made his debut in Sunday's 3-2 friendly victory over Croatian side NK Varazdin after impressing during a trial on Teesside.

Mowbray told the club's official website: 'Malaury can do a bit of everything and will be a useful addition to our midfield.

'He can pass, tackle and defend and he has a great shot on him, so we will try to utilise his talents.'

Free agent Martin, a former France Under 21 international, spent last season at Blackpool, but injuries did not allow him to make a first-team appearance.
