Christian Burgess: Defender would be keen to extend loan at Hartlepool

Middlesbrough youngster Burgess has made 15 appearances for Hartlepool since joining the League Two club in the summer.

The 22-year-old is enjoying his experience at the club and would be keen to stay with Colin Cooper's side beyond Christmas.

Burgess, a former Arsenal academy player, said in the Sunderland Echo: "I would like to see out the season, but it is out of my hands at the moment.

"I would love to stay and it has been fantastic so far.

"I haven't spoken to Boro and I suppose we will see how it goes and then we will have to see what they say and what the gaffer here says and then decide what is best for both parties."

alcao really needs to shine now. Apparently according to the stats, he scores more when played up front alone. I wonder if Van Gaal will actually apply a formation to get the best out of him though.
