Middlesbrough defender Paddy McNair has agreed to extend his contract with Middlesbrough until summer 2024.

The Northern Ireland international, 25, still had 18 months remaining on his previous deal at The Riverside.

Former Manchester United and Sunderland centre-back McNair is closing in on 100 appearances for Boro since he made the move to Teesside in June 2018.

"We want to almost build a team around Paddy. He has excelled this season," said Boro boss Neil Warnock.external-link
