Peterborough United's Lee Tomlin joins Middlesbrough permanently

Middlesbrough have signed Lee Tomlin from Peterborough United permanently, three weeks after he joined on loan.

Boro have paid an undisclosed fee for the 25-year-old forward, who has agreed a three-and-a-half-year deal, ending a four-season spell at London Road.

Tomlin is yet to feature for the Championship side because of a three-match suspension triggered by a sending off in his final Posh appearance.

He could make his Middlesbrough debut in Saturday's game against Leeds.
