Here are ten things you, maybe, didn't know about Viktor Fischer, who will become just the second Dane after Mikkel Beck to play for Boro after he completes his move from Ajax on June 9.

1: He was born in Denmark's second largest city, Aarhus, on June 9 1994.

2: A left-winger, he played for Lyseng IF's youth team before moving to fellow Danish clubs Viby IF, AGF and FC Midtjylland before his big move to Ajax where he began life in their Academy.

3: He has represented Denmark at U16, U17, U19, U21 and full international level. So far he has won eight caps for the full squad.

4: His performance in the U17 World Cup caught the attention of many top flight clubs in Europe, including Manchester City, Manchester United and Inter Milan but he chose to join Ajax in 2011.

5: In his first season with the Amsterdam giants he ended joint top scorer in the Next Generation Series, the Champions League for U20s, scoring seven goals as Ajax ended runners-up to Inter Milan.

6: After signing a three-year contract in 2011, he signed an extension which runs until 2017. So far he has made 96 appearances for Ajax, scoring 26 goals. Last season he made 34 appearances, scoring 10 goals including one against Celtic in the Europa League.

7: Viktor's granddad, Poul Pedersen, won a silver medal with the Denmark side he captained in the 1960 Olympics. An amateur footballer, Poul, who played much of his football as a right-winger, became the first player to reach 50 caps for Denmark

8: Viktor has a middle name of Gorridsen and stands 1m 80cm tall, roughly 5' 10"

9: He has only been shown a yellow card twice in 103 games.

10: Fischer is a name with German origins and we couldn't find too many famous people with that surname, other than BBC Tees broadcasting guru Bob, former world chess champion Bobby and American TV actress Jenny who starred in the US version of The Office. Given the global brand of the Premier League, maybe this is Viktor's chance to add his name to that rather small list.
