Sierra Leone international midfielder Kamil Conteh has agreed to sign for Boro this summer.

The 19-year-old will officially join from recently-relegated Premier League side Watford when his contract expires at the end of June, having previously trialled with us and featured for our Under-23s at Nottingham Forest last month.

Kamil made his senior debut with the Hornets back in January, coming on as a substitute in an Emirates FA Cup third round tie at Leicester City. A few days earlier he had been an unused sub in the Hertfordshire club's top flight clash with West Ham United.

He also made 11 appearances for National League South outfit Braintree Town during a loan spell earlier this year.

Born in London, but qualifying for Sierra Leone, Kamil won his first international cap in March when he played the full 90 minutes against Togo. The midfielder has been included in the Leone Stars' squad for Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Nigeria and Guinea-Bissau in June. 

As a youngster, Kamil was with Crystal Palace's Academy and played for Lambeth Tigers before joining Watford as a scholar in 2018. He signed his first professional deal with the Hornets last summer.
