MIDDLESBROUGH have completed the signing of Hearts defender Jordan McGhee on a season-long loan.

McGhee will initially join up with Boro's Under-21 development squad, and the Teessiders have agreed an option to convert the loan into a permanent transfer at the end of next season.

The 19-year-old, who is a regular in the Scotland Under-21 side, has made 58 first-team appearances for Hearts. 

He joined the Edinburgh club's youth system as a 16-year-old in 2007, and has scored four goals during his career.
