  • Following a successful loan spell at Barnsley, where he scored nine goals, including two at Wembley, Ashley moved to the Hammers in pursuit of regular first team football.
  • He made 20 appearances for West Ham – 17 as a substitute – and scored once, against former employers Man United in the EFL Cup.
  • Ashley made his Boro debut on the opening day of the 2017-18 season in a 1-0 defeat away to Wolves.
  • He scored his first goal for the club in a 3-0 win over Scunthorpe in the second round of the Carabao Cup at the Riverside on August 22. 
  • Ashley joined north-east neighbours Sunderland on Deadline Day, January 2018, on loan for the rest of the season.
  • In the 2017/18 season Ashley made 36 appearances, 20 for us (six starts) and 16 for Sunderland (15 starts). He scored four goals, two for each side.
  • The 2018/19 campaign brought 29 appearances and nine goals, the majority of the appearances coming from December onwards. He scored a hat-trick for our U23s in a 3-1 win away to Newcastle at St. James' Park towards the end of October.
