Kitson open to permanent switch

Published Add your comment

Dave Kitson has not ruled out a permanent switch to Middlesbrough despite previously indicating he had no long-term plans to stay with the Championship club.

The striker had initially suggested he would be heading straight back to parent club Stoke at the end of his loan spell in a bid to prove himself again in the Premier League. But Kitson now seems to be enjoying life at the Riverside having netted three goals in his last two games to revive Boro's promotion challenge.

Kitson told the Journal: "I go back to Stoke on December 28 and when I do I'll speak to the manager Tony Pulis and see what he feels."

The former Reading star added: "It's difficult to predict what might happen. I know I am going back when the loan is up but if the club want to do something else they can do something else and then I'll see what the situation is."

Meanwhile, defender David Wheater has not given up hope of forcing his way into England's World Cup squad.

He said: "It's difficult at this level. I'm not sure England scouts come to watch. But you never know, with a few injuries I could be back in the picture."
