Boro boss Aitor Karanka confirmed after Saturday's FA Cup loss to Hull City that he was closing in on Omeruo, and now he has finalised a deal.

The 20-year-old, who can play at centre-back and full-back, is yet to make his debut for Chelsea but he has 14 caps for Nigeria.

"Kenneth is a strong defender and I think we need to improve in this area," said Karanka.

"I know him Jose (Mourinho) and has told me about him and I think he's going to be very good for us to add to the squad."

Omeruo is now set to go straight into Boro's squad for this weekend's clash at Blackpool.

e doesn't need a caoch. He needs a bus. A bloody big one, that he can park across the goal line. And when he gets one, he can do us a favour and let us know where we can buy one from as well.
