Boro set to unveil Argentine

Last updated : 26 July 2006 By Reggie Holdsworth
The 25-year-old joins Boro from rivals Sunderland after spending six years on Wearside. He will sign a five year contract at the Riverside.

The attacking fullback is also comfortable in midfield and will offer added competition to Emanuel Pogatetz, Andrew Taylor, Stewart Downing and Adam Johnson.

The signing all but confirms the departure of Franck Queudrue who has been talking to Fulham. The Frenchman has not been involved in Boro's two pre-season games to date.
