FORMER Sunderland skipper Dean Whitehead has completed his move to Championship neighbours Middlesbrough.

Whitehead was released by Stoke City at the end of last season after four years at the Britannia Stadium.

Boro have been leading the chase for Whitehead and have now sealed a deal for the 31-year-old, who has penned a two-year deal at the Riverside.

Whitehead will be reunited in Boro’s midfield with former Sunderland team-mate Grant Leadbitter.
