Middlesbrough have signed Manchester City striker Alex Tchuimeni-Nimely on a three-month loan deal.

He played for England in the 2009 Under-20 World Cup and was an unused squad member in this year's event.

The 20-year-old, who was born in Liberia, has made two first-team appearances for City and signed a four-year deal at the club in April 2010.

The forward is expected to miss the trip to Crystal Palace in the Championship on Saturday.
