Middlesbrough have completed the signing of Coventry City's Lukas Jutkiewicz on an emergency loan in order for him to make his debut on Saturday.
Jutkiewicz will now be able to feature against Burnley at The Riverside, as Boro were unable to complete a permanent deal in time.
Tony Mowbray will now be able to use 22-year-old while Boro work on the final details with the hope of announcing his £2million capture on Monday.
Mowbray said: "We've been looking for some physicality in the front areas of the pitch. We do get enough balls into the box but with total respect to Marvin Emnes and Scott McDonald, they're not 6ft 2ins with aerial dominance who can tower over people and head goals.
"I think this player has that first and foremost, but he also has a nice left foot, technicality, mobility and appreciation of the ball.
"He's still very, very young and he's got a lot to come. So there's a lot of potential in this player."
