Middlesbrough have completed their loan move for Sunderland defender Matthew Kilgallon.

Kilgallon will link up with Boro for the rest of the season after failing to force his way into manager Steve Bruce's plans.

The 26-year-old joined the Black Cats from Sheffield United in January but has made just seven senior appearances for the club.

And the stopper will go straight into the Middlesbrough squad to face his former club in Sunday's clash against the Blades at the Riverside.
