It had been reported that Newcastle were eyeing up a bid for Randolph as recently as last week, but it seems that Middlesbrough have agreed a deal and the player is due for a medical on Teeside tomorrow.
Randolph lost his place in the West Ham team towards the end of last season and the east London club have since signed England number one Joe Hart. Indeed it is exciting times for fans, but not so much for Darren Randolph.
The 30-year-old has started 28 Premier League games since joining West Ham from Birmingham in 2015.
"The club have agreed a deal in principle with West Ham United to sign goalkeeper Darren Randolph, subject to a medical and personal terms".
The Republic of Ireland worldwide will travel to Rockliffe Park, the club's training facility and sports complex on Saturday, ahead of completing the transfer.
Manager Garry Monk has been handed the job of attempting to make a swift return to the top flight, and Randolph will join worldwide team-mate Cyrus Christie, Jonny Howson, Cyrus Christie, Martin Braithwaite, Britt Assombalonga and Connor Roberts (loan) as the summer signings.
