Szilard Nemeth looks set to sign for Strasbourg by the end of the week.Middlesbrough striker Szilard Nemeth will sign for Strasbourg by the end of the week, according to reports from France.
The Slovakia international looks set to end his time at The Riverside in the not too distance future, having fallen down Steve McClaren's striking pecking order since the arrival of Yakubu Aiyegbeni in the summer.
Nemeth has struggled to ever establish himself as a regular starter in Boro's first team and has most recently been used in a wide midfield role rather than his specialist position as a striker.
Strasbourg's head of recruitment, Marc Keller, has confirmed that a deal to bring Nemeth to Ligue 1 is now in place and could be concluded by the close of the week.
''He will arrive at the end of this week or at the beginning of next week to pass a medical,'' Keller told Derniere Nouvelles d'Alsace.
