MIDDLESBROUGH have completed the signing of Spanish striker Kike tonight.

The 24-year-old met up with the Boro squad at the team hotel in Marbella tonight to finalise a three-year contract.

Kike will now spend the weeks training with his new team-mates and manager Aitor Karanka will hope to see the former Real Murcia man hit the sort of form which saw him hit 23 goals in the Spanish Second Division last season.

He will replace Lukas Jutkiewicz in the Middlesbrough squad. Jutkiewicz has spent the day at Burnley and has completed the formalities over a deal with in excess of £2m.

Sad to see Jukes going, and lets hope this KIKE start scoring many goals that we are lacking.
