Middlesbrough boss Aitor Karanka has boosted his midfield options with the loan signing of Bruno Zuculini from Manchester City.

The Championship club have signed the 22-year-old on a month long loan deal.

Karanka has moved to bolster his central midfield as Grant Leadbitter and Adam Clayton are just one more booking away from suspension, while Adam Forshaw was sidelined for the weekend win at Wolves.

The Argentinean Under-20 international completed the formalities of his move at Rockliffe on Monday ahead of his first training session with the club.

Zucculini started his career in his home country with Racing Club before joining Man City in the summer of 2014.

The central midfielder hasn’t featured in a competitive game for City, but he has gained senior experience during loan deals with Valencia and Cordoba.
