Bailey deal confirmed by ‘boro

Bailey follows striker Kris Boyd to the Championship side as manager Gordon Strachan looks to push his team up to the Premier League.

Manager Gordon Strachan told Boro’s official website: “We’re delighted to sign Nicky. He scores goals and all different kinds of goals.

“He can play left side of midfield or centre midfield and he’s self-motivated. There’s also a devil inside him when he plays and you sometimes need that.”
