Middlesbrough goalkeeper Brad Jones is to miss the start of the season with an ankle problem.

The 27-year-old picked up the injury in training last week is expected to be missing for around three weeks.

The Australian signed a new three-and-a-half-year contract in January after establishing himself as Boro's first-choice keeper.

New signing Danny Coyne and England Under-19 international Jason Steele will battle it out to replace Jones.
