Middlesbrough are closing in on the signing of Aberdeen striker Lee Miller.

Miller is understood to be travelling to Teesside to undergo a medical and discuss personal terms after Middlesbrough agreed a fee in the region of £500,000.

Aberdeen have decided to cash in on Miller as his contract expires in the summer and he had yet to agree a new deal.

Boro boss Gordon Strachan is thought to have watched Miller in action in midweek and he is now poised to become the former Celtic boss' latest new signing at the Riverside.

Boro boss Gordon Strachan has decided to make the move for Miller after seeing his side draw another blank at home to Bristol City on Saturday.

Aberdeen manager Mark McGhee has confirmed the two clubs are talking about a possible deal for the striker.

"Middlesbrough have asked about Lee Miller," said McGhee. "They have made an approach and the clubs are talking.

"If a deal is done, it will have to be done very quickly. We have to decide

whether we want to keep him or sell."
