Jermaine Jones is officially a member of LA Galaxy. After sending most of their draft picks away to Colorado for his rights, the club has signed the USMNT midfielder to a TAM level contract for next season. It's Jones's third MLS team in as many seasons.

Middlesbrough have signed forward Patrick Bamford from Chelsea. The 23-year-old was on loan there for the 2014-15 campaign and now will join on a four and a half year deal.

He was on loan at Burnley to begin this season and made six appearances before being recalled and sold.
