The 21-year-old has impressed Pools manager Colin Cooper while training with the League Two club and is likely to spend at least half the season at Victoria Park.

Cooper told The Northern Echo: "We've agreed a loan with Middlesbrough. Christian is someone I've a lot of time for.

"If we do what I really want to do, then we need people who can defend and play football and he can certainly do that and he will be an asset for this club.

"At this moment I think it will be a loan deal until Christmas, then we will reassess it.

"I've no doubt he will play for Middlesbrough in his career, but at the moment (Middlesbrough manager) Tony (Mowbray) believes his development is ongoing.

"He's played in pre-season for them and I think he will be a good acquisition for us."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

F365's Transfer Guide - Part One

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
