Huth hitch?

The German was been carrying an injury during the World Cup and was due to play in the 3rd/4th place play-off, but pulled out during the warm-up.

He has been on Teesside for a couple of days undergoing a medical after the two clubs agreed a fee and the player agreed terms.

It is too early to say if the transfer will be vetoed, or if Boro will wait until the injury settles down. Boro are expected to release an official statement.
