The new signing speaks after joining on loan…

Yannick Bolasie has been watching Boro’s progress this season, and the winger hopes he can add an extra dimension in our push for the Play-Offs.

The 31-year-old joined on loan from Premier League Everton until the end of the season, and says he’s looking forward to getting going having previously come close to signing for the club.

“It’s kind of a case of ‘finally!’ he said.

“I’m delighted that this time it’s gone through and I’m just looking forward to coming in and helping the team. 

“We know that Middlesbrough’s a big club, I’ve seen some legends come through here – Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink, Mark Viduka, Mendieta, Juninho.

“And I know where the club should be, so the main thing is to get it back there.

“We’ve got a good squad from what I’ve seen and obviously I know the manager really well – it’s a match.”
