De Roon set for Atalanta

Atalanta have reportedly had a £13million bid for Middlesbrough's Marten de Roon accepted.

Holland international De Roon joined Boro last summer from Atalanta for a fee believed to be worth £8.8million but he was unable to stop the club from suffering Premier League relegation.

The 26-year-old played 65 minutes of the opening Championship game this season and that looks like it will be the final time he pulls on the shirt with a return to the Serie A imminent.

He is believed to be set for a medical in Italy on Thursday and official confirmation of the move is expected to be made on Friday morning when personal terms are agreed.

De Roon, who made 33 appearances for Boro, would become the 13th new arrival at the Stadio Atleti Azzurri d'Italia this summer, following the signings of Timothy Castagne, Josip Ilicic, Etrit Berisha, Jose Luis Palomino, Andreas Cornelius, Fabio Eguelfi, Matteo Pessina, Luca Vido, Robin Gosens, Nicolas Haas, Joao Schmidt and Riccardo Orsolini.
