The Northern Ireland Under-21 international joined Boro from Norwich in the summer but has found first-team opportunities hard to come by.

"As a youngster you do want to go out and play men's football and this will give me the opportunity to go out and get that experience," he told Boro's website.

"I watched them on Saturday against Hayes and Yeading and they won 4-1 - they're a very attacking side which I like and they pass the ball quite well so hopefully I fit in with them."

"I spoke to their manager on Saturday as well, he introduced me to all of the players and I spoke to him and he outlined what he wants from me and how his team plays."
