Middlesbrough striker Kike has signed for La Liga side Eibar on a three year contract for an undisclosed fee.

The 26 year-­old, who has scored four goals in 24 games so far this season, has been a regular part of Aitor Karanka's side since his arrival from Murcia in July 2014.

In his time at the Riverside, Kike has made 75 appearances, scoring 16 goals, including one in the 2­-0 FA Cup win at Manchester City, and one in the second leg of the play­-off semi­-final victory over Brentford.

His arrival at the Riverside back in 2014 came off the back of an impressive season at Murcia, where he averaged a goal every two games, scoring 23 goals in 46 games.

With the arrival of deadline day signing Jordan Rhodes, as well as loan deals for striker Kike Sola from Athletic Bilbao and Gaston Ramirez from Southampton, the striker was reportedly on the verge of a move to the La Liga club on deadline day, but it was understood that the deal could not be finalised in time.

It is believed the deal will see the Spaniard move back to his home country at the end of the season.
