Middlesbrough: Real Madrid's Tomas Mejias signs on loan

Middlesbrough have signed Real Madrid reserve goalkeeper Tomas Mejias on loan for the remainder of the season.

The 25-year-old made his debut for Real in 2011, and has also played for Spain's Under-19 and Under-20 sides.

He is reunited with Boro manager Aitor Karanka, who was assistant to Jose Mourinho when he was at the Bernabeu.

The agreement was reached during the transfer window, but complications over clearance delayed its confirmation.
