Espanyol striker Cristhian Stuani has been confirmed as a Middlesbrough player after the Championship club received international clearance.

Uruguay international Stuani, 28, agreed terms with Boro last month and had been training with the squad while waiting for paperwork to be completed.

He cost the Teessiders £2.8m from the La Liga club, after scoring 16 goals in 48 appearances last season.

Stuani will wear the number 18 shirt for Aitor Karanka's side.
