A deal for the prolific forward, also known as Kike, was agreed a few days ago and he has now completed the formalities on the move after linking up with the squad at their pre-season training camp in Marbella on Monday.

Kike, a former Spanish Under-20 striker, has scored 48 goals in 150 league games for Murcia, and he bagged 23 goals as Murcia finished fourth in the Segunda Division.

The 24-year-old has a good record in front of goal, and is seen as an exciting signing ahead of the new season.

The striker will become the club's second signing of the transfer window, joining fellow Spaniard Tomas Mejias.

"We're delighted," said Boro boss Aitor Karanka. "He's a very good player, and a very good person. He scored a lot of goals, and he will help us.

"He's come in and I have a very good feeling, but I don't want to put pressure on him.

"I'm sure he will be very comfortable here. He was given a good welcome."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
