Folan joins St. Ledger at Boro
Republic of Ireland international Caleb Folan today (Thursday) completed a three-month loan deal from Hull City to Championship club Middlesbrough.
The Tigers had bolstered their attacking options last month, prompting manager Phil Brown to allow Folan the chance of gaining first-team football elsewhere.
Boro have started the Championship campaign strongly and could go top by beating leaders West Bromwich Albion on Saturday when Folan is expected to make his debut.
Folan's international colleague Sean St Ledger had moved to the Riverside Stadium earlier this week from Preston North End also on loan.
