Dave Kitson joins Middlesbrough on two month loan

200px-Middlesbrough_crestMiddlesbrough have signed striker Dave Kitson from Premier League Stoke City on a two month loan, the second striker to arrive at the Riverside since Gordon Strachan took over as manager of the club.

Kitson will join Birmingham City striker Marcus Bent on loan at Middlesbrough as Strachan attempts to bolster the squad in an attempt to gain automatic promotion back to the Premier League.

Former Reading striker Kitson has scored only two goals in 29 games for Stoke, the player was loaned back to Reading last season and is seriously short of match fitness, having spent much of this season on the Stoke bench.

Kitson could make his debut for Middlesbrough on Saturday at home to Nottingham Forest in the Championship.
