DANIEL AYALA will be available to play at Leicester City tomorrow after finalising a permanent move to Middlesbrough.

The defender's 93-day loan expired earlier this week and the two clubs have been discussing a full-time transfer.

And Aitor Karanka, the Boro boss, will be relieved to see the deal go through after Ayala signed a three-and-a-half year contract at the Riverside.

The 22-year-old has been a big player for Karanka and he is likely to retain his place alongside Rhys Williams at the heart of the defence against the Foxes.
