Just weeks after securing automatic promotion to the top-flight at the end of a tough Championship season, Boro announced the £3.8million signing of the highly rated Danish attacker.
He broke through Ajax’s famed youth academy to make his debut at the age of 18 and has since appeared 110 times for the Dutch giants.
Oh, and Fischer’s a Danish international too – with his cap against Japan this morning adding to the eight he already has.
Denmark are playing in the Kirin Cup in Japan alongside Japan, Bulgaria and Bosnia and it’s the latter who they’re facing in the Far East today.
Already leading 1-0 through Simon Kjaer, Fischer showed Middlesbrough fans exactly the sort of quality they can expect from him in front of goal with a nicely taken finish to put his country 2-0 up:
Fischer hitting the net is sure to get Boro supporters excited about him donning their shirt from next season onwards.
And they’ll be hoping he can produce some strong form as they look to stay in the Premier League too.
