Middlesbrough have signed Stoke striker Dave Kitson on a two-month loan.

The 29-year-old has netted just two goals in 25 Barclays Premier League games for the Potters since a £5.5million move from Reading - where he returned on loan last season - in the summer of 2008.

Manager Gordon Strachan told the club's official website: "I'm delighted Dave is coming in to bolster the squad's numbers and give us more options."

He added: "I've been a fan of Dave for a few years now. He is a good striker and another player for us to call on."

Kitson, who could make his debut in the home Championship clash with Nottingham Forest on Saturday, said: "I'm happy to be here and excited to be part of it.

"I'll do my best and hopefully that will be enough to keep the club in the top positions."
