Euell signs but Huth deal not yet complete

The Jamaican has joined Boro on a two year deal and has cost £300k. He can play up front or in midfield, so Boro boss Gareth Southgate may be ready to try him on the right hand side of the midfield.

Contrary to reports yesterday the deal to sign Robert Huth has not yet been complete. The German has signed an agreement and Boro have completed their paperwork, but the hold up is at the Chelsea end.

Chelsea chief executive Peter Kenyon has been on other business, signing Ashley Cole, and has been unable to add his signature to the paperwork. He has assured Boro chief executive Keith Lamb that the deal will be complete before tonights midnight deadline. Let's hope it is.

Boro will hold a press conference tomorrow to unveil Euell and Huth.
